Whitehorse, Yukon – The Wilderness City

Whitehorse, Yukon

The Capital of the Yukon and nicknamed ‘Wilderness City,’ Whitehorse has a lot more going on than one might expect! It’s nestled on the banks of the Yukon River, surrounded by pristine lakes and rivers, and boasts a vibrant small city nightlife scene. We particularly liked Winterlong Brewery, and Woodcutter’s Blanket, a trendy cocktail bar that could easily hold its own amongst any cool spot in Logan Square or Bucktown, Chicago.
