Basic Information about Whitehorse, Yukon Territory — By Jennifer Shipp

Whitehorse, Yukon Territory
The sign welcoming us to the Yukon Territory, a vast a desolate landscape punctuated by the hip and trendy town of Whitehorse.

Whitehorse truly is as cool as people say it is. It has a health food store as good as any you’d find in Colorado and there’s a very decent music and arts scene in this small, isolated town (population 23,276). The people here know how to make the most of constant daylight or constant dark. After Vancouver, this city would be my second choice as a place of residence in Canada. It isn’t as populated as Boulder, Colorado, but it’s just as progressive. If you’re concerned about eating healthy on your trip, Whitehorse is a good place to stop. And if you’re concerned about getting bored on your way through Northern Canada, plan to get a dose of excitement in this little community before continuing onward to Alaska.

Whitehorse is the capital of Yukon and by far the largest city in northern Canada. It is situated along the shores of the Yukon River. Thanks to its location in a valley, the climate in Whitehorse is a little milder than some of the other settlements in northern Canada.

We stayed at the Pioneer RV park both times that we rolled through Whitehorse. The park is owned by a very sweet Phillipino family who helped us through our flat tire ordeal on our way to Epic Pizza. The park was heavily treed, quiet, and clean with private showers. This is the place I would recommend to friends and family if they’re lucky enough to make it this far into the Yukon Territory.
