Whitehorse is the Yukon’s capital and owes much of its fame to the Klondike gold rush of the late 19th century, when the city became a booming prospectors paradise. Whitehorse is located on the Alaskan Highway, 541 km (327 miles) north of Fort Nelson. Its remote location doesn’t stop the hundreds of tourists that head up to Whitehorse each year, primarily during the summer months when 24-hour sunlight warms the city. Whitehorse experiences daily highs of 21 °C (69.8 °F) in July and average daily lows of -22 °C (-7.6 °F) in January. The city is located along the banks of the Yukon River and, according to Meteorological Service of Canada, Whitehorse has the distinction of being Canada’s driest city, mainly because it lies in the rain shadow of the Coast Mountains.
Whitehorse is often referred to as the wilderness city as it is surrounded by a network of hiking trails, and the Yukon River flows right through the centre of the town. The Yukon Territory is considered the “Gateway to Alaska”, Whitehorse is the ideal base to tour and explore this wild region.
