Yukon holiday

Awesome views and great walkway across. The Yukon River has cut a deep gorge. There are no fences or barriers to ruin the view.

Fabulous views, well-marked trails. The RIm Trail takes you right along the edge of the canyon. Not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights. If this is you, take the other trail, a bit inland, but still amazing views.

This is a great walking area within minutes of Whitehorse. We walked the flat area ourselves then joined a free tour up to the Canyon City just upstream from the suspended bridge. The scenery was great and if you can get one of the free tours during the summer put on by the conservation group do it, all kinds of... More

Really happy we stopped here. You can walk 10 minutes or hours if you want. Not only beautiful nature but also gold rush memories.

The history attached to this beautiful spot is integral to keeping the Yukon past and present alive. There is nothing else in Canada that can match this stunning site and view.

A bunch of ladies from Skagway went up to eat at the restaurant and had a great time. I had a pastrami sandwich which was great, my friends had the Buffalo burger and home made fries. All great, they are open for lunch 10-3 or so Monday through Saturday. The chef is really great, she is internationally renown! Will get... More

Whitehorse has to be one of the prettiest places in Canada. Make sure you explore all the different options and valleys to see and experience. It's easy to get 'postcard' photos as the views are spectacular!

For tourists interested in history of Yukon it is good to see Miles Canyon. On way go through south access route around Schwatka lake not by Alaska Hihway. Reason- it allows one to see the lake and the dam which provide power to city and Yukon but also backed up the river and made Miles Canyon passible. Better view from... More

What a wonderful spot to take in the view and set the scene for the next three weeks of our tour. There is a history board there to give you the history of the canyon.
