Yukon Hotel Reservations
Southern Yukon territory visitors looking for a fun day of sight-seeing, have wonderful options in Whitehorse. Touring the historical S.S. Klondike, located on the Yukon River, is a definite must-do. The original S.S. Klondike sternwheeler was built in 1929 and hauled freight between Whitehorse and Dawson City. Once it ran aground in 1936, parts were salvaged by the British-Yukon Navigation Company and the S.S. Klondike II was built.
Klondike II hauled freight in Yukon through the 30s and 40s, until 1950. Once the highway from Whitehorse to Dawson City was built, the sternwheeler was decommissioned. The ship was converted into a cruise ship and remained active for five years, before it was sent to the Whitehorse shipyards. Thankfully, the ship was restored and moved to its current location, in 1966. While in town, stay close to this National Historic Site of Canada and many other city attractions, in a comfortable Best Western guest room.
