Yukon Territory

Getting there & around

There are three major ways to reach the Yukon with your vehicle: by ferry to the entry points of Skagway and Haines, Alaska, by the Alaska Hwy from Dawson Creek, BC, and by the Stewart-Cassiar Hwy from northwest BC that joins the Alaska Hwy neat Watson Lake.

Whitehorse is linked by air to Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Alaska and the NWT. There are even flights direct to Germany during summer. Dawson City has flights to Inuvik in the NWT and to Alaska.

You can reach Whitehorse from BC by bus. From there a patchwork of companies provides links to Skagway, Dawson and Alaska. Rental cars (and RVs) are not only expensive but only available in Whitehorse. The Alaska Hwy and Klondike Hwy are paved and have services every 100km to 200km.
