Family Travel to the Yukon
Posted By admin On June 12, 2011 @ 8:35 am In Canada Travel | No Comments
Have you ever thought about the idea of family travel to the Yukon?As a Canadian I have always loved the history of the Yukon. The upper parts of Canada and Alaska still seem to be mostly untouched, rugged, and pristine wildernesses to discover. Some of the best memories I have as a child are of camping with the family in some of the Great Canadian Parks so it only seems fitting to do the same with my kinds.
Well I saw an ad today on one of the websites that I went to for travel packages to the Yukon. I clicked through and although to me the packages seemed expensive I am sure they are not. I am a cheap traveller locally when we go camping but am spending $2700 dollars for a trip to Mexico next month so why would it be any different to travle to the Canadian North.
Travel Yukon  has some great stuff and this is what they say:
The Yukon, and its towering mountains, boreal forests, sweeping tundra, rushing rivers, enormous glaciers and miles of Arctic coastline, will energize your soul.
You’ll sleep beneath the northern lights and dance under the midnight sun. You’ll discover the majesty of our national parks (Kluane, Ivvavik and Vuntut), territorial parks (Tombstone and Herschel Island) and Canadian Heritage Rivers (Thirty Mile―Yukon, Alsek, Tatshenshini, Bonnet Plume). You’ll gaze up at Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak, and witness the migration of the Porcupine caribou herd.
Let history also come alive on your Yukon journey as you follow the trails of First Nation traders and gold strike prospectors, and visit Dawson City to relive the heady days of the Klondike Gold Rush. Listen to the stories of the First Nations Elders. Learn about ancient Beringian creatures that roamed the Yukon Territory 10,000 years ago.
There’s no limit to what you can do in the Yukon.
There is also a page on their website on travel packages in the Yukon  and many of these would be great opportunities for family travel to the Yukon.
