A Yukon road trip is one of the most epic trips in Canada. The Yukon, a territory in northwest Canada, is wild, mountainous and sparsely populated. It is home to vast swaths of wilderness that is teeming with wildlife like bears, moose, caribou, and wolves. This road trip was our first time to the Yukon and it blew us away — we know we’ll return.
This Yukon road trip route heads north to the gold rush town of Dawson City, before driving up the Dempster Highway to one of our favorite parks in the world Tombstone Territorial Park. Afterward, it’s back down to Dawson and across to Alaska via the scenic Top of the World Highway.
The final section involves the imposing Kluane National Park and Reserve home to monstrous glaciers and the tallest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan. Consider this the fast version of the route, but if you have time we’d really recommend completing the loop in two weeks, plus or minus a few days.
