Things to do

When you travel throughout Yukon, whether you drive the highways, hike the trails or paddle the rivers, remember that there are two separate worlds woven together here. One is modern, the other is ancient.

Authentic Experiences

The Yukon is home to an exciting range of cultural, heritage and outdoor experiences that will get you out on the land, into our heritage, and hearing our stories first hand.

You can see our beautiful homeland from the comfort of a modern vehicle or motor boat, on horseback, by bicycling or walking, by dogsled and more. Explore the Yukon, learn about its history and culture, and embrace the uniqueness of each area you travel through and each person you meet. 

Be sure to check in with cultural centre and visitor information centre staff to access the most up-to-date information on Indigenous experiences as you travel throughout the territory.

Arts and Culture

Yukon is home to many gifted First Nations artists who create extraordinary works of art based on traditional legends and images that have been passed down through generations.

The art that you will see include hide, fur and beaded clothing; moccasins and mukluks; Ravenstail and Chilkat weaving; silver, beaded and antler jewelry; prints and paintings, and a variety of carvings and masks using wood, copper, bone, mastodon ivory and antler. Many artists sell their work through, at cultural centres, festivals and local galleries or from their homes.

When travelling throughout the territory, check in with cultural centres and First Nation offices if you’d like to know artists who sell their artwork from their home.
