Whitehorse is the capital of Canada’s Yukon territory and is surrounded by the Grey Mountain, Haeckel Hill and the Golden Horn mountain, as well as the Yukon River. Whitehorse is the most cosmopolitan community in Yukon but it is also easy to get to the lakes, rivers, mountains and trails that offer stunning scenery and a wide choice of activities. To the south of the area is Miles Canyon, which is the site of a former gold rush town. Lake Laberge is a popular trout fishing location and in the downtown area the yellow 1925 Whitehorse Waterfront Trolley still take the same route along the railroad track. The Yukon Wildlife Preserve is home to moose, bison and caribou and the region also offers cross country ski trails, hot springs, basalts, national parks, hiking and a mining museum.
