Home to more moose than people, the great expanse of Yukon covers the size of California, but has the population of just one square kilometre of Manhattan. Needless to say, there’s plenty of land to roam, fresh air to breathe and good country folk to meet.
Yukon is home to Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, but it’s also home to many iconic rivers and pristine wilderness below.
Whether you’re up for some backcountry skiing, canoeing, horseback riding or spotting grizzly bears, there’s something for all nature lovers.
