Colourful frontier buildings line old-time boardwalks in Dawson City. Saloons, can-can girls and a vintage sternwheeler intertwine the present with 1898 Klondike Gold Rush days when some 50,000 gold-seekers stampeded north. Visit the goldfields, a barren landscape of dreams, followed by a game of croquet at the elegant Commissioner’s residence. Explore a famed poet’s historic log cabin or a European-style theatre and experience a magical northern outpost under the Midnight Sun.
