Yukon, your New Year’s destination 2013

One of three territories, the Yukon is situated in the northwest corner of Canada's continental mainland, isolated by mountains. The name “Yukon” originated from the Locheux native word "Yuk-un-ah," meaning "Great River," referring to the Yukon River that flows across the territory into Alaska. The largely untouched landscape is ideal for activities like river rafting, fishing, hiking, camping, canoeing and cycling. Take in the breathtaking scenery, with its pristine rivers and snow-covered mountains and you’ll feel like you’re in another world when you welcome the New Year 2013.

With its deep historical roots, Whitehorse the capital city has become a popular tourist destination. You’ll be able to join in with the celebrations for the New Year and experience the kindness and generosity of the inhabitants. Watch the fireworks up in the sky, while you toast to the incoming year of 2013 in this unreal landscape. And if you’re lucky, you’ll see some “natural fireworks”, created by the aurora borealis, or Northern Lights.
