Watch our video itineraries as we explore the lake district in the Yukon for two days. We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in the Southern Lakes – home to a wonderful lakeside resort. This region is one of the prettiest in Canada with beautiful lakes and wilderness as far as you can see. We loved the first nations culture you can experience in Carcross.
The Southern Lakes Region of the Yukon – Discover a tiny desert, big cold-water lakes and small warm-hearted communities. The Carcross Desert’s sandy dunes are a chance to sink your feet into what’s left of an ancient glacial lake. Top-notch hiking and some of the best mountain bike trails in the world are just across the lake. The historic Chilkoot Pass that was so formidable during the gold rush also ends at the shore of Bennett Lake.
