Whitehorse was settled in the traditional territory of two First Nations—the Kwanlin Dun and the Ta’an Kwach’an—and boasts a vibrant arts and cultural community. You can attend the world's third-largest storytelling festival or cheer on the teams in the Yukon Quest, a 1,000-mile international sled-dog race. Almost everyone has come from somewhere else, making for an eclectic, bustling city with unlimited possibilities. The rich cultural scene offers a steady fare of theater and dance.
Less than a hundred years ago, the river, not roads, was the way around the Yukon. Today you can still raft, canoe and kayak, or step back in time aboard the S.S. Klondike sternwheeler. Wander up from the riverfront to MacBride Museum for gold panning and beadwork or face mammoths and saber-toothed tigers at the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre. Flightsee or go horseback riding for a few hours between meetings. Once you meet the mushers, artists, entrepreneurs and local characters, you’ll have your own stories to tell.close description
