Welcome to Whitehorse - on the legendary Yukon River

Travel Planning:
Suggested Routes and distances to the North


A note about traveling in the North - distances between Northern communities can be a surprise for first time visitors. When traveling the highways from one village to the next there is rarely any people living more than a few miles outside the community boundaries. The distance between Watson Lake and Teslin is 170 miles. There is not much more than spectacular scenery, wildlife and endless vistas between the two villages. Motorists must remember to keep their gas tanks full and be aware of where the next gas station is.

Watch for wildlife on the highways, there are over 55,000 moose and 6,000 grizzly bears in the Yukon!

For more information about traveling in the North, see the Facts & Tips page.
