The Yukon is a breathtakingly beautiful Canadian territory located in the far northwest of the country. Its mountainous terrain and vast wilderness gives visitors an incredible opportunity to explore nature, and its unique history makes it an interesting place to visit.

Popular tourist attractions in Yukon include Kluane National Park, where you can find Mt. Logan, Canada's highest peak; Tombstone Territorial Park for its diverse wildlife; and the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Dawson City. Tourists can also take part in outdoor activities like skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, and camping during their stay.

One of the most fascinating facts about Yukon's history is that during World War II it was home to two Japanese-Canadian internment camps--the largest of which was the Takhini Internment Camp near Whitehorse. Today those sites remain as reminders of Canada's controversial past when people were persecuted due to their race or ethnicity.
