UK tour operators add new Yukon packages for winter 2020-2021

While non-essential travel to Canada's Yukon region is currently not encouraged, with a 14-day quarantine on arrival still in place, the Yukon tourism board is encouraging bookings for late 2020 and into 2021.

UK tour operators are adding new Yukon trips to their itineraries for the coming winter season.

With more than 80% of its area in wilderness, Yukon is home to more than 160,000 caribou, 70,000 moose, 22,000 mountain sheep, 6,000 grizzly bears and 220 species of birds. Only 40,000 people live in the area. The destination is known for national and territorial parks, including some UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as Kluane National Park, four Canadian Heritage Rivers, and 3,000 miles of road, with some of the most remote areas in Canada, largely unexplored

Some of the new packages for winter 2020-2021 include:

Aurora Borealis Outdoor Adventure from Dawson City with North America Travel Service for three nights or £872 per person

Visitors can experience the Northern Lights and historic Gold Rush town, Dawson City, on North America Travel Services’ new Aurora Borealis Outdoor Adventure package and enjoy a three-night stay at the Aurora Inn in Dawson City, which includes breakfast and dinner, a guided day trip to Tombstone Territorial Park, dogsledding on the frozen Yukon River, two nights of aurora-viewing, a City and Goldfield tour, a trip to the Dawson City Museum, and a historic walking tour of the Dawson City.
