Ice Fishing Cut into metre thick ice to fish for the famous trout.

DAY THREE:

The traditional way of life in the Yukon was briefly interrupted in 1897 with the discovery of gold that brought an estimated 100,000 stampeders to the area. After scaling the White Pass, the stampeders built rafts to navigate the mighty Yukon river in search of gold rush town Dawson. Learn about the history of the gold rush, as well as the building of the Alaskan Highway and First Nations culture. Discover all of this and more by adding a Whitehorse city trip to your holiday. Alternatively choose to explore the winter wilderness with optional dog sledding excursions or relax in the warm waters of Takini Hot Springs.
