When it comes to holidays, this tiny town has big pull

Font Size:

I don’t know about you but when I look at this video, I see fresh clean air, fun times and good living. Really makes me want to go there.

It’s a place called Dawson City – an eclectic and vibrant northern community on the banks of the Yukon River in Canada.

With its mixture of First Nations heritage, gold rush history and thriving arts and tourism scene, Dawson City has everything you’re looking for in a northern town.

The Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in people have called the area home for centuries, and the Klondike Gold Rush put this town on the tongue of stampeders worldwide.

Dawson City’s arts and culture scene, as well as its wilderness and history, mean miners, artists, adventurists, first nation’s people, old-timers and new-timers all happily share the town – it’s a haven tucked away in the middle of Yukon.

Watch this video and you’ll see that Dawson is a magical place that is easy to love and potentially difficult to leave – and the perfect place for a heavenly holiday.

It might be a small town, but as far as holidays go, it packs a punch. Check out all the things you can see and do at Dawson City.
