Walked around the Klondike in the snow. Impressive old ship and unfortunately not open. Loved seeing it though. Paddle wheel was huge.

Explore a true piece of Yukon history but stepping on the SS Klondike. Ask the Parcs Canada employees (French services available) about the Gold Rush's era and the preservation of the ship. Don't miss the upper deck and the view of the magnificent dinning area, sooooo glamourous! Amazing to think it was not so long ago that people came to... More

We visited the Yukon in the middle of winter, so the klondike was not open for visitors. It is available for private functions and tours by the public over the summer months. It has a great story, and the amount of energy and the stories associated with this unique character ship are well worth the trip out to see it... More

Beautiful and very interesting! It was really cool to learn about how it worked and the importance of these boats before there were roads in the Yukon wilderness.

A must see while you are in Whitehorse. There is a movie and Parks Canada staff on the boat to explain and answer questions. There is no charge but you do pay $2.50 or so for the guild book. Well worth it. There is a small Gift Shop there as well.

Strolling about the SS Klondike, with museum exhibits all over the floating ship, makes you feel like you are really there. Also there was a media presentation in an adjacent tent. Don't miss this icon of Yukon history.

Two options, you can walk around it and take pictures in a lovely park, or you can pay to see a video about the history and wander around on board (dry-docked). Very informative, interesting to see how folks lived and traveled when it was active.

This was a free tour of the SS Klondike. It was very interesting and the vessel has been very well cared for. This a must stop in Whitehorse.

It's a boat, on the side of a lake, that doesn't go anywhere. It's well maintained and worth a look if you're heading down to the mighty Yukon River in Whitehorse.

The last and the largest back peddler to travel to and from Dawson City, carrying the ore and equipment.
