  • I really enjoyed this place and I learned so much. It was fascinating to learn about the ice bridge and the bones that got dredged up in the gold rush. I also enjoyed the First Nations story about the crow. The mammoth skeleton was so cool to see.

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.
