Experience the Yukon
The Yukon is in northwestern Canada. It sits between the Canadian province of British Columbia and the Arctic Ocean, with Alaska to the west and the Northwest Territories to the east. At 186,722 square miles in area, it is twice as large as the UK and covers more area than Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands combined. With just 32,000 residents, the Yukon's very large landscape has a very small population. In fact, the population was higher in 1898 than it is now. Dawson City alone reached a population of over 30,000 during the Klondike Gold Rush. Yukon's heritage is rich and culturally diverse. About one-fifth of all Yukoners are of aboriginal ancestry and belong to one of fourteen Yukon First Nations.
