  • Land of the midnight sun!

    Dawson Favorites

    One of the reasons why I wanted to visit Dawson City in June was because I wanted to experience what it felt like to be there when days are 20h long. In June, the sun sets shortly before 1:00 am and gets up again shortly before 4:00 am. Even when it goes down, it never really gets dark. The most wonderful thing about it is that you end up having...

Many of the indian villages and fish camps are only inhabited during the fishing...

    Lake Laberge Warnings and Dangers

    Lake LaBerge is probably the most dangerous part of the 435 mile canoe trip from Whitehorse to Dawson. The water in the Yukon river and in the lake is very cold - there was ice on shore during our June trip. The wind can come up very quickly and create whitecaps in the lake that can swamp your canoe. Even with a life jacket it may be difficult for...

    Liard Hot Springs is a nice hot springs about half way between Fort Nelson and Whitehorse, which tend to be regular stops for us when we travel the AlCan. There is a nice RV campground with some tent sites, and a couple of nearby inns and bed-and-breakfasts, so you can stay or just stop. The parking area to access the springs is a bit short of...

    Carcross Things to Do

    If you have a car then a stop at Emerald Lake may well be of interest. Although the photo does not do it justice, it is generally a strong green colour especially if the sun is shining as it is a reflection of the marl, a mixture of clay and calcium carbonate at the bottom of the shallow waters which are reflecting sunlight back.

It's the perfect place to find unique Canadian souvenirs. If you're making a brief stop in the Yukon while riding the White Pass & Yukon Route train...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a museum in this village you may want to visit. Also, check out the house that is built entirely out of beer bottles. See also the Mooseberry bakery (picture at left). There is also a small pub in this village that is usually empty because, of course, hardly anyone lives around here. But the bartender is an ancient grizzled guy who will tell you some old war stories and talk about how busy the place was when the mine was still open.

    Favorite Dish: pizza and a milkshake

    Baggage & Cargo transported to Terminal by ATV 3 more images

    by PeterVancouver Updated Feb 17, 2012

    The Air North Flights are invaluable to Old Crow, as there are is no road access to the village of around 300 people. It is on the sheduled flight route from Whitehorse to Inuvik, via Dawson and Old Crow, and is the only community in the Yukon which is north of the artic circle.
    Both on land and airside of the airport, ATVs are the order of the day, both used to convey freight and baggage from the aircraft to the small wooden building that is the terminal, and also to carry people to and from the tiny airport to the village.

    As with Dawson, the 5000' runway is made up of gravel rather than the more conventional paved surface which can make for a huge plume of dust to follow the aircraft, as it ploughs down the runway, as can be seen on my Dawson page.
