S.S. Klondike National Historic Site
Sitting on the banks of the Yukon River, the majestic SS Klondike National Historic Site is the perfect place to spend a few hours. Take a guided tour of the grounds with an interpretive guide, stroll through the interpretive panels at your own pace or join us in the theatre for film viewings several times daily. Knowledgeable and friendly Parks Canada staff at the Visitor Welcome Centre are ready to help you plan your visit.
The S.S. Klondike is closed for the season. Guided tours will be back again in 2023!
All aboard the mighty S.S Klondike! Before there were highways, riverboats connected the Yukon to the rest of the world. Experience what life was like during the riverboat era, why the Klondike was built so big, and how people depended on riverboats before highways meandered through the Yukon. Your guided tour will include a stop on the vessel’s bow for a scenic view of the river as well as the sensation of river travel on the boat known as the queen of Yukon sternwheelers.
