Yukon
The Yukon Territory, in Canada's far northwest, is perhaps best known as the site of the Klondike Gold Rush. Towns such as Dawson City still offer a snapshot of the spirit of those times of boom and discovery in the late 19th century. Even the food across the territory recalls the meals of prospectors, such as sourdough bread and pancakes. You can still enter certain bars in the Yukon and sip at tipples such as the 'Gold Rush' cocktail, a blend of gold foil and whisky - two of the territory's most important exports.
However, what might intrigue adventure or nature lovers more than its human history is its landscape of endless skies, gigantic lakes and sharp, clean air. The Yukon Territory consists mainly of mountain ranges cut by the mighty Yukon River and its tributaries. Indeed, Canada's highest mountain, Mount Logan, is situated in the Yukon.
Another popular draw to the territory is its high recordings of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), ribbons of colour that illuminate the vast night skies.
This unspoilt wilderness is relatively well served by roads left over from the days of the gold rush and from an attempt to exploit oil reserves. The Yukon Territory therefore combines the best of scenes with the best of facilities and accessibility.
Whether you seek solitude or escapade, everything is catered for here - and by nature itself.
