Exploring the Yukon: Epic hikes and Northern Lights in Canada
Travelers Quin Schrock and Jess Dales explore the diversity of the Yukon—Canada’s smallest and westernmost territory. With just over 35,000 people in its 183,163 square miles, it’s also the least populated, which leaves it wide open for nature and little changed over the course of human history.
Follow Quin and Jess as they dive into the wilderness in the fall. They catch a helicopter into the Tombstones to do some backcountry camping, head to Whitehorse (the Yukon’s only city) to hike with the huskies, and catch a northern lights show in the Fish Lake region.
The people, food, and culture of the Yukon are unique, and Quin and Jess get to experience it all. Jess says that “it’s been a great mix of wilderness and activities. [The Yukon] has all that but also has a really fun culture.” Quin adds that “it’s a place that people should have on their bucket list.” Now he can cross it off his.
