The Yukon is a vast playground for adventurous souls. Perhaps there is some intrepid magic in the air, or perhaps it is just that the rugged landscapes of the Yukon inspire our imaginations. This is the land of the midnight sun and the magical Northern Lights. Get in touch if you have any questions about our tours and experiences in the Yukon.
The vast territory of the Yukon provides an endless opportunity for adventure.
If you arrive in the summer, you can expect almost endless hours of daylight, comfortable temperatures and lots of options to explore the verdant landscape. You can go hiking or paddling, flightseeing or fishing or just enjoy the hospitality of the Yukon’s cities and towns. Take advantage of the months with “midnight sun” for extra hours of adventure.
In the fall, the landscape changes from green to orange, red and yellow and the days become dramatically shorter meaning that the evenings are lit up once again with the Aurora Borealis. This is a great season for wildlife viewing.
The winter arrives with long, dark nights that are perfect for enjoying the magic of the Northern Lights. In the daytime, you can soak in the frozen beauty of the landscape with adventures such as skiing, ice fishing, fat biking or dogsledding.
In the spring, the temperatures start to warm up a bit but the winter landscape remains, making this a great time to enjoy outdoor winter sports without the bite of winter weather. Late in spring, migratory birds arrive, crocuses appear on the hillsides and wildlife emerges.
While out on your outdoor activities, you should keep an eye out for some of the Yukon’s incredible wildlife. Home to some of Canada’s most iconic animals, the Yukon is the perfect place to see wildlife in its habitat, surrounded by pristine nature.
What big wildlife can you spot in the Yukon?
One of the most popular reasons to visit the Yukon is to see the spectacular Aurora Borealis, also commonly known as the Northern Lights. The Yukon, situated as it is under the Auroral Oval, is one of the top places in the world to see the Aurora — no binoculars or special equipment required!
Winter is a great time to visit the territory for Aurora viewing as the nights are long but you can also see the Lights in the fall (usually after the middle of August).
The Yukon is one of Canada’s last true wildernesses, and Landsby has put a lot of care into our collection of Yukon tours, experiences, and accommodations.
