The Yukon Territory is an undiscovered wilderness paradise with little development, few people, and pristine backcountry.
Located in the far northwest of Canada, this territory encompasses almost 500,000 square kilometers of pure, untouched wilderness, and you’ll have access to it from our base in Whitehorse, dubbed “The Wilderness City” and capital of the Yukon.
This northern paradise of wild, technical rivers and sweeping tundra begs exploration. During the summer, the land explodes from its winter months of darkness for a season of continuous daylight. In this Land of the Midnight Sun, you’ll share the wilderness with caribou, bear, wolf, moose, and migrating birds.
The only trails you’ll follow are those made by the wildlife, and likely the only people you’ll see are your fellow coursemates. Whether you call Canada home or you’re traveling from abroad, the Yukon’s stunning rivers and little-used mountain ranges provide the ideal setting for a wilderness adventure. The NOLS Yukon experience is one you won’t want to miss.
