Suggested Itinerary

Welcome to the capital of the Yukon! Whitehorse is home to most of the population of the territory, and the city is full of historical buildings, gorgeous street art, and fantastic mountain views. Get settled at your Whitehorse accommodation, and once you’ve made yourself at home and are feeling refreshed, you can take some time to get to know this beautiful mountain town. Stroll along the majestic Yukon River, check things out at the Visitor Information Centre, and grab a bite to eat at one of the many fun and eclectic downtown restaurants within walking distance.
If you’re looking for a pick-me-up after your travels, head to Baked Cafe and Bakery for delicious coffees, teas, and lattes and a wide selection of tasty pastries.

Upgrade your accommodations to include premium or kitchenette rooms for additional amenities.
It’s time to get to get your Yukon tour started! Your day will start with a mellow and scenic three hour cycling tour of the city, along the river, and across the suspension bridge. Pedal at your leisure and use the assistance of the eBike’s motor when desired, so you can take in the sights and get better acquainted with the charms, highlights, and hidden gems of Whitehorse. Then, head to the banks of the Yukon River on the outskirts of Whitehorse for a guided tour of the SS Klondike. A Heritage Interpreter will show you around the magnificence of this National Historic Site, regale you with stories of life on the river aboard sternwheelers, and paint a picture of an era before roads, when these huge ships connected the Yukon to the outside world. Now, head to a glassblowing workshop! Get to know about and experience this exciting and fascinating art form with a hands-on, guided class. You’ll work as a pair under professional instruction to sculpt and create your own unique and beautiful works of art that will serve as the perfect souvenir of your Yukon experience.
Book lovers will enjoy visiting the many Little Lending Libraries sprinkled around Whitehorse, as well as a shopping spree for amazing second-hand deals at Well-Read Books, located in the downtown core.

(additional charge)

As one of THE things to do in Whitehorse, we recommend you try an extended glassblowing workshop for the opportunity to learn more about the craft and create more stunning pieces to take home with you.
After a refreshing breakfast, start your day with a fascinating tour of MacBride Museum, which offers a comprehensive exploration of natural history, the resilient people of the Yukon, and important historical events and eras of the area. Featuring 40,000 objects, their collection utilizes artwork, preserved artifacts, fossils, and restored settings to share stories of the Indigenous peoples that lived in the Yukon for tens of thousands of years, the experience and impact of the Gold Rush, and the building of modern Yukon. While you’re here, try your luck at a gold panning experience to see what it was like searching for gold. Next, you’ll head down the street to the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre. Filled with evocative and moving artifacts and art pieces by Indigenous creators, the centre celebrates and honours the history and contemporary life of First Nations peoples in the territory. Cultural tours and workshops are available for a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Kwanlin Dun people’s stories, traditions, and ways of life.
South of MacBride Museum and perched near the river you’ll find the Healing Totem, which was a collaborative project of 20 carvers. At its base its a collection of woodchip ashes, a memorial honoring those impacted by the residential school system.

Today is a busy one, so be sure to charger your batteries and bring your camera gear.

Dall sheep, stone sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, wapiti (elk), woodland caribou, wood bison, musk-ox, moose and even lynx can all seen on this tour, usually up close! To cap off a great day, you’ll travel to the nearby Nordic spa and hot springs facility. This luxurious experience includes multiple outdoor hot pools and Japanese clay pot baths, in addition to the indoor relaxation areas like saunas, steam rooms, hot beds, and more. It’s the perfect way to relax and rejuvenate at the end of your amazing Yukon adventure!
After a long day, you must be hungry! With various options to enjoy a delicious meal in downtown Whitehorse, we suggest that you visit Antoinette’s, G&P, Miner’s Daughter, Gold Pan Saloon or Gather Cafe & Taphouse.

Upgrade your Wildlife Preserve adventure with a private and exclusive tour, and include an animal feeding experience or behind-the-scenes exploration of the Rehabilitation and Research Centre.
It’s time to pack up your belongings and check out of your hotel. Don’t forget to search your room for any leftover belongings; it’s a long way to return to pick up any forgotten items! If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check in for your flight and arrange for transportation to the airport. The airport is small and has limited amenities compared to others around the world, so plan to charge your electronics and grab a snack before you depart.
If you have some time, visit Burnt Toast Café for brunch! This fun and funky little restaurant offers great atmosphere and eclectic breakfast food from 8am -11am.

(additional charge)

Depending on your flight’s departure, you could include a half day canoeing, horseback riding, or taking an aerial tour. Or, extend your Whitehorse tour to explore the territory and take a road trip to visit Dawson City, Haines Junction or explore their beautiful National Parks.
