The Yukon has many sightseeing opportunities including wildlife, pristine wilderness, mountains, lakes and rivers as well as historical and cultural sights. To get the most out of a trip to the Yukon, a sightseeing tour can offer you a once-in-a-lifetime experience, whether by air, water or land.
If you want to capture some memorable photographs, you can’t go wrong. Try a tour on a float plane with large opening windows or a scenic tour to Alaska. Wildlife can often be viewed on shore from river tours. Helicopter tours are great for exploring hard to reach places.
To experience some Yukon history while seeing the sights, you can travel on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, built during the gold rush in 1898, view historic sites on the Yukon River from the from a paddlewheel-propelled boat or even try your luck at gold panning on a mine tour.
When the snow arrives it brings with it some unique touring possibilities such as dog sledding, skijoring, snowmobiling and even ice road tours.
