#1 of 9 in Nature in Yukon
Visit the area around the Yukon River and take in the volcanic rock flows at Miles Canyon. The river cuts through the rock at the canyon, giving the best view of volcanic basalts of the area. The canyon offers many biking and hiking trails, which take you along the river and through some picturesque landscapes.

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.
