Good luck with that. The only International airport is in Whitehorse and it has flights from Fairbanks, Alaska all year. In the summer, you can fly in here from Frankfurt, Germany and Juneau, Alaska too. Domestically, Edmonton and Calgary, Vancouver and Inuvik (honestly, how many people connect from there?) and a couple places within the Yukon. Other than that, if you have your own plane, you're better off than the rest of us because each town, village or settlement has an airstrip. The only airlines that fly into Whitehorse are Air Canada, Air North, Condor (again, seasonal), and First Air.

Alaska/Yukon Trails operates from Whitehorse to Dawson City ($143)and on to Fairbanks ($162) on Mon, Wed, & Fridays from May 15-Sept 15, if the Top-of-the-World Hwy is open. They require minimum 2 persons traveling, but if they do not have 2, you can get on a wait list. They have a web site at www.alaskashuttle.com. Be sure if you rent a car that it is insured in both Canada and US or you will be stopped at border and not allowed to continue. Also, check out drop fees. Taylor Hwy between Bondary and Chicken not for timid drivers. Gravel, narrow at the top. Have a great trip, you are going to cover some beautiful territory.

For Alaska cruise ship passengers, an easy way to get a flavor of the southern part of the Yukon Territory is do a one-day bus tour. Tours leave daily from Skagway, Alaska and go to Carcross and/or Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory. Our bus was comfortable, and stopped plenty of times for us to get out and take photos. The bus had a tourguide, who gave us plenty of information about the sights we were seeing and the area's history, particularly the Klondike Gold Rush.
You can aso do a combination bus/train trip, with one leg of the trip on the Yukon and White Pass narrow gauge railroad, which is what we did. It takes longer, but was fun for our daughter Anna, who likes old trains.
Cruise ship lines that stop in Skagway will often offer a Yukon day-trip option. If you want to book it on your own, a couple of weblinks are provided below:

While in Dawson City we stayed in a campground on the south side of the mighty Yukon River. This meant that we had to be travel back and forth across the river to the actual town. Fortunately Dawson City has an excellent ferry service which crosses the river about every half hour all day long for the cost of maybe a buck if I recall correctly.
