Surrounded by three distinctive mountains, and perched upon a frigid river, Whitehorse lives up to its reputation as "The Wilderness City." The capital, and indeed only city of Canada's northwest Yukon region has a reputation for its clean air, with one survey ranking it as the city with the lowest air pollution in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Miles Canyon and Yukon Wildlife Preserve. Venture out of the city with trips to Carcross (Caribou Crossing Trading Post, Carcross Desert, & more). And it doesn't end there: witness a stunning natural landmark at Takhini Hot Springs, see the interesting displays at Yukon Transportation Museum, identify plant and animal life at McIntyre Creek, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To see maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Whitehorse travel planner.
