Kluane National Park
Kluane National Park and Reserve, which is one of a group of parks [ Kluane / Wrangell-St. Elias / Glacier Bay
/ Tatshenshini-Alsek ] in Canada and the United States that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in
1979. Kluane is rugged, with mountains and ice making up 82% of its surface area. Kluane is home to Canada's highest and largest mountains, the St. Elias Range.
Among Kluane's mountains are the world's largest non-polar ice fields, which continue to accumulate snow.
Many valleys contain glaciers, such as the Lowell Glacier, which is about 40 miles (65 km) long. When these
glaciers move, the results are spectacular. The Lowell glacier has been known to block the Alsek river
resulting in large glacial lakes – the most recent, Lake Alsek, is said to have drained in two days in the mid
-1800s. It's not surprising that the Lowell glacier, known as Naludi by the local native population, is the subject of many of their traditional stories.

On the Alaska-Yukon border, it is Canada's westernmost community.
Burwash Landing and Destruction Bay
Along the western shore of Kluane Lake, the largest lake in the Yukon, are two of the Territory's smaller
communities, Burwash Landing and Destruction Bay. The communities are located in the Shakwak valley, on the perimeter of Kluane National Park and the Tachal Region.
Burwash Landing is the home of the Kluane First Nation. Southern Tutchone people have inhabited the Kluane
area for countless generations. The current site of Burwash Landing was a traditional summer camp location.
Carcross and Tagish
At the northern tip of Bennett Lake, on the old Klondike Gold Rush trail, lies the village of Carcross. Once a
hunting and fishing camp for Inland Tlingit and Tagish people, Carcross became a key stopover and supply centre during the Klondike Gold Rush. Tagish attracts tourists and cottage owners from Whitehorse.
Carmacks is located at the confluence of the Yukon and Nordenskiold rivers. Originally, the Carmacks area
was part of the hunting and fishing territory of the Northern Tutchone people. The site of Carmacks was an
important trading stop on the river trade routes of the Coastal Tlingit and the Northern and Interior Athapaskan. During the Klondike Gold Rush, the site became a stop on the way to Dawson

The Town of Faro is tucked away in a mountainous setting in the Tintina Valley, in the overwhelming
wilderness of the Campbell Region between the Hess Mountains and the Pelly Mountains, in the Central-South Eastern Region of Yukon Territory.
Faro is an ideal base for wildlife viewing as it is situated in one of the most densely concentrated wildlife areas in North America.
Set against the spectacular backdrop of Canada's highest mountains, Haines Junction is a popular holiday
destination for Yukoners as well as tourists. It is located on an early trade route used by the Coastal Tlingit
and Chilkat peoples. Haines Junction is best known as the access point to Kluane National Park and Reserve.
Keno City - Keno City
The Keno City area ranks with Dawson City in its rich and varied history of mining activity, predating that of
the 1898 Gold Rush. For many years the region was the 2nd largest silver producer in North America, and the 4th largest in the world.
Marsh Lake, waar de rivier de Yukon begint - see Exceptional Places
A scenic 35-minute drive (55km) from Whitehorse. One of the best places in the world to view the aurora borealis.

abundance of sledding and skiing trails provide opportunities for all. Historically, the area was a major transportation route for the Klondike Goldrush of 1898.
Mayo - Village of Mayo
Located in the central part of the Yukon Territory. Our area, which is in the Na Cho Nyak Dun traditional
territory, is marked on tourist maps as "The Silver Trail". The highway serving our region -- also called the
Silver Trail -- connects the communities of Stewart Crossing, Mayo, Keno City, and the mining ghost town of Elsa.
Mount Lorne - Hamlet of Mount Lorne
Located south of Whitehorse, the Hamlet of Mount Lorne extends from just south of the junction of the Alaska
and Klondike Highways to south of Bear Creek, and down the Annie Lake road to the Weaton River bridge.
Old Crow is the most northerly community in the Yukon, and the only community that can't be reached by road
. In some years a temporary winter road is constructed. Old Crow is located on the banks of the Porcupine
River, north of the Arctic Circle about 800 kilometres north of Whitehorse. It is the home of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation.
Originally, Pelly Crossing was used by Selkirk people as a campsite along the way to Ta'Tla Mun. The
community of Pelly Crossing is located along the Klondike Highway and on the bank of the Pelly River, 282 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse and 254 km southeast of Dawson City.
Ross River - zie Ross River
Originally, First Nations people used the site as a seasonal camp and gathering place.
Located on Teslin Lake at the mouth of the Nisutlin River. During the Klondike Gold Rush, it was one of the waterways used to reach the Yukon River.
The First Nation people of the Teslin area are the Inland Tlingit, or the Dakh-ka Tlingit. The Tlingit people have
traveled through this area for centuries. Famous as traders, the Tlingit came from Alaska in search of furs for
trading, and some settled in the Teslin area. Teslin Lake was an important fishing area for First Nations.
Watson Lake - Town of Watson Lake - Gateway to the Yukon
Located in the southeastern corner of the Territory, just 14 km from where the Alaska Highway crosses the
British Columbia border. Watson Lake is a key transportation hub. It sits at the junction of the Alaska Highway,
the Robert Campbell Highway to the central Yukon and the Northwest Territories, and the Stewart-Cassiar Highway from central British Columbia.
Watson Lake lies within the traditional territory of the Liard First Nation, part of the Kaska Tribal Council.
Mount Logan - op een na hoogste berg in Noord-Amerika
Het hoogste punt van Canada, Mount Logan (5959 m), is in het zuidwesten van Yukon te vinden. Height aside,
Logan is one of the most massive mountains in the world. Its many cliff faces, well over 10,000 feet, rise to
an immense ten-mile summit crest of high peaks and saddles. The summit crest spills giant heavily crevassed glaciers for miles over the surrounding valleys.

Yukon River Quest
The Yukon River Quest is the longest endurance marathon canoe & kayak race in the world!! Where else could you paddle 24 hours a day?
At the Top of the World, in the Yukon-Alaskan Interior, an epic event takes place every year that few people
from "down south" have experienced. Covering 1000 miles between Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and
Fairbanks, Alaska during the depths of the Arctic winter, the Yukon Quest is the "Toughest Sled Dog Race in the World."
The Yukon Quest Trail follows historic Gold Rush and Mail Delivery routes from the turn of the 20th Century.
Once a travel highway of the Northern frontier, the trail comes alive each February with the breath of
hundreds of sled dogs. Teams of one human 'musher' and 14 canine athletes, travel for two weeks, racing through some of the last pristine wilderness remaining in North America.
The territory's historical major industry is mining, including lead, zinc, silver, gold, and copper. Indeed, the
territory owes its existence to the famous Klondike gold rush of the 1890s.
Yukons History - Wikipedia
Canadian Heritage Rivers System - Canada's national river conservation program
Canada is a land of rivers. White ribbons cascading through endless boreal forest. Silver ribbons sliding
down broad, glacier-carved valleys. Meandering muddy rivers sweeping across the prairies. Ribbons of
green linking a labyrinth of lakes, ponds and bogs on the Canadian Shield. Sparkling brooks cascading to the
ocean. Rivers are everywhere imprinted on the Canadian landscape – and in the hearts and minds of its people.
See The Thirty Mile, a section of the Yukon River between Lake Laberge and the Teslin River, is a rich hunting
and fishing area for its original inhabitants, the Ta'an Kwach'an (People of the Flat Lake Place).
Klondike gold rush of the 1890s - zie Wikipedia
On August 16, 1896, rich placer gold deposits were discovered by George Carmack in Bonanza (Rabbit)
Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson. News reached the United States on July 17, 1897 when
the first successful prospectors arrived in Seattle, and within a month the Klondike stampede had begun.
