Travel Tips

Definitely! Here are some travel tips to help you plan your visit to Whitehorse, Dawson City, Yellowknife, and Inuvik:

Best Time to Visit:
September to April is an excellent time to see the Northern Lights. Summer, which is late May through August, is a pleasant time for hiking, canoeing, and wildlife viewing.

Route and Accessibility:
These cities are well connected by road and air. The distance between cities can be covered by plane, car, or bus, depending upon where you are starting your journey.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
The altitude in these places is not much of a concern. However, the dry weather and cold can be a challenge. Make sure to moisturize your skin regularly and drink plenty of water.

Accommodation and Booking:
Accommodation ranges from budget to luxury in these cities. It's advisable to book your stay in advance to avoid any last-minute hassles.

Clothing and Essentials:
The weather in these cities can be extreme in winters reaching below -30 degrees Celsius. Make sure to dress warmly, layering is key and don't forget hats, gloves, and warm footwear. In summer, light to medium clothing is fine. Don't forget to carry a good quality sunblock, as UV rays can be stronger in these northern cities even if it's cold.

Health and Safety:
Make sure to carry your medicines and a first aid kit. Mosquito repellent is a must in summer. Pay attention to signs of frostbite and hypothermia in the colder months.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Local people value their privacy and appreciate politeness. Be respectful of local indigenous cultures, always ask before photographing people, and learn a bit about their traditions and customs to foster friendly interactions. Abiding by rules when visiting National Parks and wildlife areas is also important to minimize environmental impact.
