Arctic Tundra & Dawson City | naturally wild

Enjoy Yukon’s most charming cities, the capital of the Yukon, Whitehorse and a small town in the North with a huge personality - Dawson city, unlike any place on earth. On our road trip to Dawson City you will be accompanied by a fascinating landscape. Often described as a living museum, Dawson City’s boardwalk-lined streets contain many attractions and historical artifacts, back from the gold rush. Try your luck at Diamond Tooth Gerties, a unique casino with cabaret-style entertainment of the gold rush era and explore the history of all famous writers like Robert Service, Jack London and Pierre Berton. Are you ready to pan for gold in the rivers and creeks surrounding Dawson? We will bring you to an active gold mine outside of town. To continue your Yukon adventure we’ll go right into the heart of the Tombstone mountains, where you will be surrounded by an epic, colorful scenery and pristine wildlife.

The staff is friendly and helpful in planning your trip up the Dempster Highway. They have updated info on highway conditions which is necessary to travel the highway. They will give you driving tips on gravel roads and tell you how far you can go on your tank of gas (Engineers Creek if you are not going to Eagle Plains). There is also a whiteboard outside with highway info if they are closed. Remember that they are on a different time zone than the Yukon.

This is a must visit if you are doing the Dempster highway all the way, Be sure to get the very comprehensive guide they have and be sure to have all the prep they suggest on your vehicle. Great information, film and exhibits.

My wife and I were not planning on driving the Dempster Hwy. but thought we would stop in to check things out. We spoke to a awesome lady who gave us lots of info on the length , places to stay and tips on how to prepare for such a trip. We enjoyed the visit and would like to make the journey in the future.

The night we arrived in Dawson, there had been a tanker truck wreck up on the Dempster, the Hwy was closed. Our purpose was to go to Tuk. Found this place and they even called up to Eagle Plains (near the wreck) to get the most current info on the clean up. We were able to get the info and adjust our trip accordingly so we could head up the Hwy in a couple of days. We made an excursion to Fairbanks -Top of the World Hwy- and returned to take the Dempster. Unfortunately when we returned the office was closed for the season, so unable to thank them.
