Yukon’s official nickname is The Land of the Midnight Sun because on June 21 (summer solstice) the sun never sets in some parts of Yukon. About 75% of the population of Yukon live in the capital Whitehorse.
Winters in Yukon can be quite severe but summers can actually be quite warm where temperatures across the province average around 20C. Temperatures average above 10C for at least four months of the year.
Best time to visit
Due to the climate, the best time of the year to visit Yukon is from May – September when the weather is at its warmest. Also during these months the natural illumination of sunlight peaks at nearly 23 hours (June and July) and never falls below 15 hours (September).
Every road in Yukon is a scenic route which is dotted with historic communities and cultural attractions including the legendary Top of the World, Klondike and Dempster highways. On every route, you’ll meet friendly locals ready to share a smile and a story.
Yukon really offers great natural beauty from broad valleys to rushing rivers to endless mountain ranges – over 80 percent of the Yukon is wilderness. Yukon’s iconic parks are full of wildlife that is truly wild and has a host of world-famous rivers too.
Due to Yukon’s northerly latitude, Yukon experiences some fantastic sky lightshows such as the Midnight Sun experienced in June and the incredible Northern Lights (aurora borealis) which can be seen across Yukon from late August to mid-April.
