Visiting the Yukon in summer is the perfect way to get your dose of adventure—and Vitamin D. In the land of the midnight sun, the skies are glorious and summer light just won't quit. Spend a couple of days winding up the North Klondike Highway along the route of Gold Rush stampeders. Explore roadside historic sites, visit cultural centers in Carmacks and Pelly Crossing, and pitch a tent at a quiet campground in the boreal forest. Hike the historic Silver Trail and stroll the boardwalk-lined streets of Dawson City as you learn about the Klondike Gold Rush. Drive up Bonanza Creek Road to Dredge #4, and hike on the Ridge Road Heritage Trail. Read the works of novelist Jack London and historian Pierre Berton in the land that inspired them. Spend a day visiting Tombstone Territorial Park. Watch for grizzly bears, moose, and Dall sheep in Kluane Mountain Range. Visit attractions in Burwash Landing, Haines Junction, and at Sheep Mountain and enjoy the region’s beautiful campgrounds. And when you realize it’s midnight, keep right on exploring.
