Yukon Territory is probably best known for the Klondike Gold Rush between 1896 and 1899. You probably won’t find much gold here today, but you will discover a wealth of beautiful landscape, especially in the Tombstone Territorial Park where you can camp beside lakes and look up at a myriad of stars in the clear night sky. Go white-water rafting on Bonnet Plume and Firth Rivers, or for a more peaceful day out, canoe along the Big Salmon, Pelly and Teslin Rivers. Go rafting down Alsek River to see glaciers and grizzly bears. Hike along the Chilkoot Trail which hunters took in their search for gold. Buy Klondike gold items in the many stores in famous Dawson City or pan for nuggets along Bonanza Creek, the site of the original Klondike gold claim.
