Yukon Should Be Your Next Family Holiday

  • Written by Philippa Macken


More and more Aussie parents are choosing to take their kids off the beaten track during school holidays, seeking wilderness adventures and cultural experiences for an unforgettable family vacation. Here are five reasons why Canada's Yukon Territory ticks all the boxes.



1. With almost 5000 kilometres of scenic highways, Yukon serves up the ultimate family road trip. Hire an RV and traverse the endless wilderness and epic mountain ranges. The kids will love being intrepid explorers and you'll love the stunning tranquillity of this northern Canadian territory where the sun hardly sets during summer.

2. The whole family will get a buzz out of historic Dawson City, a place that's more like a movie set than a township, with its historic buildings and wooden boardwalks, amidst beautiful scenery. Learn about the Klondike Gold Rush days when 100,000 prospectors came to chase dreams of gold in 1898. Try your hand at gold panning – a memorable family activity!

3. Spend a summer's day hiking and picnicking on one of Yukon's iconic trails around the capital city of Whitehorse, affectionately referred to as the Wilderness City. Check out the kids programs and free guided hikes at Miles Canyon or go further afield to Kluane National Park.

4. Spend the morning horse riding just outside Whitehorse – no experience necessary! Later, go for a splash at the natural Takhini Hot Springs, the perfect end to another spectacular day of family adventures in Yukon.

5. Winter in Yukon is like another world. The kids will never forget sliding across a frozen lake on a sled strapped to a team of frisky dogs, and you'll always remember snuggling up together, sipping hot chocolate under the night sky as it shimmers and dances with glorious northern lights.

Getting there

Yukon's capital city of Whitehorse is just 2.5 hours by air from Vancouver, accessible with year-round daily commercial service. Car or RV hire services and fully guided tour packages are available from Whitehorse.  Air Canada flies daily to Vancouver from Sydney and Brisbane.
