Whitehorse justifiably calls itself the Wilderness City. After all, the only development over most of its 416 square kilometers are a network of trails, a river corridor and numerous parks, protected areas and green spaces.
Within a few miles of City Hall, you can be on top of a mountain, staring down an awesome mountain bike trail, fishing for trout, char or grayling in pristine alpine lakes, or running your canoe or kayak through legendary Miles Canyon.
But here’s the second half of the story: it really is a city, able to satisfy your every amenity, comfort, recreational and cultural interest. Talk to a Yukon Wild operator about historic walking tours, canoe/bike/gear rentals, hiking trails, cultural festivals and activities, cabin and lodge rentals, and so much more.
Whitehorse: all the wild you can handle, with a latté at the end of the day.
