Klondike National Historic Sites
Colourful frontier buildings line old-time boardwalks in Dawson City, and a vintage sternwheeler intertwines the present with the Klondike Gold Rush days, when some 50,000 gold-seekers stampeded north. Visit the goldfields, a barren landscape of dreams, and the elegant Commissioner’s residence. Explore a famed poet’s historic log cabin and a gold rush theatre, and experience a magical northern town in the heart of Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Traditional Territory.
