Trip Planner Canada  /  Yukon  /  Whitehorse

The Wilderness City

Surrounded by three distinctive mountains, and perched upon a frigid river, Whitehorse lives up to its reputation as "The Wilderness City." The capital, and indeed only city of Canada's northwest Yukon region has a reputation for its clean air, with one survey ranking it as the city with the lowest air pollution in the world. Sitting at the junction of two major highways, Whitehorse serves as a great base for expeditions around the area, and onward into Alaska. Depending on what time of year you plan your Whitehorse vacation, you could be lucky enough to enjoy the midnight sun, or potentially catch a glimpse of the elusive northern lights. Make Whitehorse central to your Canada travel plans using our Canada trip planner .

Where to stay in Whitehorse

Accommodations in Whitehorse are spread throughout the city center, easy to navigate on foot or by car. If views of the Yukon River are your top priority, you'll have to pay more to enjoy a prime riverside location in one of the hotels along Front Street. For something more budget-friendly, look for an inn or guesthouse a few streets back from the river. To immerse yourself in the wild nature of the Yukon, look outside the city itself to one of the many ranches and bed and breakfasts dotting the surrounding landscape.
