Yukon River Watershed

Yukon River & Dawson City – Gold Rush Days

Sea to Sky Expeditions

Paddle into Dawson City! A great combination of history and wilderness.


The Yukon is synonymous with the Klondike Gold Rush and this portion of the Yukon River highlights this more than any other. We will stop to visit Fort Selkirk, an important settlement from the gold rush through to the 1940s. Buildings still stand to represent a bygone era. We will canoe past Stewart City and Sixty Mile. It is from Sixty Mile, that Robert Henderson, began the search that eventually led to the great gold rush. And what feelings must have accompanied the gold rushers as they rounded the bend in the Yukon River and saw Dawson City for the first time. It is an anticipation that many who have done the Yukon River trip with us have expressed. We will spend time in Dawson City, exploring its rich history, visiting the original gold fields, and enjoying the period entertainment.
