Fun under the Midnight Sun
Dawson City, Yukon
Summer in Dawson City is all about Klondike Fun under the Midnight Sun. Re-live Gold Rush days panning for gold and gambling in an old time casino. Or head into the pristine wilderness.

Stroll wooden boardwalks through a restored gold mining town with a guide in period costume. Sip a drink garnished with a real human toe to become an official Sourdough. Stroll 8th Avenue where famous authors found inspiration. Dance to the beat of outdoor musicians the Dawson City Music Festival.

Toss dice and watch can-can girls dance at Diamond Tooth Gertie's Gambling Hall. Shop for jewelry made from local nuggets and fossilized woolly Mammoth tusks. Sleep in a former brothel turned B&B. Revel in the midnight sun from the top of the Midnight Dome.

Try panning for gold on the creek that started the world's biggest gold rush. Hop a car ferry to see a paddle wheeler graveyard. Take a cruise or canoe on the Yukon River. Tee off at midnight at the Top of the World Golf Course.

Take a bush plane trip to fish at a log lodge in the wilderness. Drive the Top of the World Highway and watch for caribou. Road trip up the legendary Dempster Highway to Inuvik to dip your toes in the Arctic Ocean.
