Watch our video itineraries as we explore this klondike town for a week.   We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in Dawson City – one of the favourite trips of all time for us.  A bucket list trip would be for you to drive from Seattle USA to Dawson City along the famous Alaska Highway for four days.   We loved the authenticity of this working gold rush town.

Dawson City is a town on the Yukon River in the Yukon, in northwest Canada. A base during the 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush, the town has several preserved frontier-style buildings. Many of these are found in the Dawson Historical Complex. The Dawson City Museum outlines the history of the Gold Rush, as well as the area’s geology and original settlers, through interactive exhibits and gold-pouring demonstrations.
