Cool piece of history

The S.S. Klondike has been beautifully restored and is a very interesting look into river travel of the early 1900's.

This is everyones favourite attraction in Whitehorse. Learn all about the history of Gold and see how people got to the Klondike. Lovely boat, lovely setting, Parks Canada. And yes people get married in front of the boat. I know because I'm a marriage Commissioner and I marry lots of lovely people there every year. Winter and summer.

This historic landmark has been well preserved and is iconic of days gone by. There are tours you can join for a more informative walk or just guide yourself.

A National Park attraction. Great visitor experience staff and we'll worth the visit with an overview of the importance of the riverboat during that period.

It is walking distance from the city center, and I would highly recommend visiting this all steam ship. It is a very important part of the Yukon's history that you don't want to miss.

This exhibit is free and available to all. It is located in a city park right along the bike/walking path that runs along the Yukon River. We parked the car here and did the exhibit then proceeded down bike/walking path to downtown. Chatted with a few locals on our way to explore some shops and go to dinner. Perfect. Easy... More

The tour of this ship grants us a peek into the life of those living during the Gold Rush and how they experienced life and travel on the Yukon River. Clean, well-developed tour.
