North Klondike Highway
The North Klondike Highway connects Whitehorse to Dawson City, and is the northern half of the highway that runs between Skagway with Dawson City.
Until the 1950s, road conditions en route from Whitehorse to Dawson were poor, and the drive was usually reserved for only the most hardy travellers. Today, the North Klondike Highway is paved and makes for a relaxing, scenic drive north. The road parallels the route used by prospectors during the 1898 Gold Rush, and offers plenty of viewpoints, wildlife-spotting opportunities, and services along the way.
