A voyage to Yukon and the Northwest Territories will feel like you’ve stepped back in time. As home to more wildlife than humans, not much has changed here over the years. Mountains still dominate over the landscape and First Nations people still hunt and trap as they have always done. There are few large cities, and local people warmly welcome visitors with a hospitality that’s hard to match. Yukon sits on the border of Alaska, and this province is renowned for its natural beauty - highlights include the Kluane National Park and Reserve, home to Canada’s five tallest mountains and the world’s largest ice field below the Arctic, and Ivvavik National Park, with its protected calving grounds for Porcupine caribou. Whilst Yukon’s population boomed during the 19th-century gold rush, today Yukon’s capital, Whitehorse, has a population just over 20,000. However, this charming city has museums, reserves and art centres, and it provides the perfect base for exploring the rest of region. Then there are the Northwest Territories, which include the territories of Dehcho, North Slave, Sahtu, South Slave, and Inuvik. Whilst most visitors dismiss it as being too remote, it encompasses an epic wilderness and unparalleled natural beauty. Here, you’ll find expansive stretches of boreal forests, massive Arctic tundras, North America’s deepest lake, and one of the world’s greatest waterfalls.
