Dawson City

In August of 1896, three men found gold and triggered a stampede of thousands hoping to find their fortune in the wild North. It became a bustling commercial centre, and for a time it was the largest city north of Seattle and west of Winnipeg. An official National Historic Site, Dawson City still evokes the heartbeat of the greatest gold rush in history, with its boardwalks and vintage false-front buildings. What was once the capital of Yukon is now the second-largest community with a population of 2,000.

The weather in summer is generally warm with cooler temperatures overnight. The Yukon has a semi-arid climate, so heavy rainfall is unusual, however we do experience occasional and highly localized afternoon showers on warmer days. Dress in layers and plan for all kind of weather and you’ll be comfortable day and night. Dress in the Yukon is always casual; jeans, t-shirts, fleece jackets and walking shoes are the local “uniform”.
