Very interesting and full of history of the Yukon. I enjoyed it Immensely! The tour guides were very knowledgable of the ship, and could answer questions about the ship that weren't part of the tour.

I love the way this stern wheeler has been preserved in history. It tells us the story of the Klondike gold rush. So many features to see & admire. Lovely place for wedding photos as well as school trips.

Largest river boat that ran on the Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City. It has been preserved by Canada Parks in a great setting along the Yukon River. Every Christmas the City of Whitehorse lights up the boat.

From the outside, SS Klondike looks like it would be a very interesting attraction. Unfortunately, it is closed from Labour Day. It is a short walk from the centre of Whitehorse.

We were the last people admitted on the day we went. Missed the last tour. As I was flying out and couldn't return the gate person took pity on us and let us aboard for free, which was nice.
