Do you prefer a worn-in pair of hiking boots to dress shoes? Whitehorse is just the place for you. Explore this gold rush town on foot, in a boat, or with a rental car – no matter how you get around, you’re sure to have a great time!
The Mane Name
Want to know how Whitehorse got its name? Book a Whitehorse hotel on the Yukon River and watch the white rapids tumble over each other like a horse’s mane. In the summer, the river is a great place to canoe, kayak, fish, and – of course – whitewater raft. You can also try your luck at gold panning on the river’s shores just like the old days. Check out the SS Klondike Sternwheeler museum for an in-depth look at this vessel that served during the gold rush, or charter a boat and create your own tour of the area.
