Day 14: Whitehorse
Yukon's capital offers you a variety of options on the last day of your trip, for example excursions into the surroundings of Whitehorse or a final visit to some local places of interest like the longest wooden fish ladder of the world or the Transportation Museum. Equally recommendable is a boat trip through Miles Canyon at the headwaters of the Yukon Rivers. He who simply prefers to relax at the end of this long roundtrip with lots of fresh impressions or would like to do a little shopping before returning home still has plenty of time and opportunity to do so. A very nice way to spend the day is an excursion to the old gold rush town and seaport Skagway, Alaska with the opportunity to take a spectacular train ride over the infamous White Pass (optional). Transfer to airport or connecting program.
