About the Tour

CTD and the experts at Yukon: North of Ordinary MagazineTM are thrilled to introduce you to the wonders, natural beauty and rugged character of Canada’s western-most territory.

Starting in the capital of Whitehorse, travel through pristine landscapes by waterways and the scenic White Pass & Yukon rail routes, discover the First Nations roots of this diverse region, and meet people who thrive amid sometimes harsh conditions and living with nature. Local Yukonners/Yukonnais will share their knowledge of forestry, natural cooking, outdoors living, wildlife care, ancient indigenous cultures and much more. Also visit Atlin BC, "Beyond Belief". It’s an adventurous trip in a “larger than life” place you won’t soon forget!
