WHITEHORSE TRAVEL GUIDE
LANGUAGESOfficially English and French
WHAT TO EATClassic First Nations dishes (bannock), wild fish and seafood like Arctic grayling, trout and Alaska king crab, wild game meats like elk and moose, locally foraged produce like morel mushrooms—sample the best at the Yukon Culinary Festival in late summer or the First Nations Fire Feast in spring.
WHAT TO BRING BACKTraditional handmade First Nations crafts from Bear Paw Music & Gifts or the Northern Cultural Expression Gallery & Studio, local, organic herbal teas, creams and soaps from Aroma Borealis, Bean North’s hand-roasted coffee beans and quirky Yukon-branded souvenirs from The Collective Good.
FUN FACTHome to some of the most impressive species in Canada, Whitehorse earns its wild nickname. Here are 3 ways to admire animals there: 1) at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where caribou, Canada lynxes, muskoxen and Rocky Mountain elks roam, 2) at the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre for lessons on Ice Age mammals, and 3) during winter’s Yukon Quest, an epic international sled dog race.
