There are many opportunities to explore the Yukon’s rich and diverse heritage at your own pace!
The Yukon Government has produced walking and driving tours that highlight community and regional history across the Territory.
Audio Walking Tours
Our audio walking tours are easy to download and follow! Just follow these steps:
- Choose the tour that interests you from the selection below, and add it your iPhone, iPod, or other MP3 player: just click on “Download Audio File”.
- Download the accompanying map and print it off, or pick up a free copy at our office, located in downtown Whitehorse (3126 Third Avenue). It’s best to call 867-667-4704 ahead of time if you’d like to pick up a copy of the map to ensure someone will be in the office.
- Put your earbuds in and start walking. Match the number on your map to your audio track, press play, and enjoy!
- Please note that First Avenue is now Front Street.
- Please also note that there is no longer a visitor information centre located in Smith House at 3128 3rd Avenue, in Lepage Park. The Yukon Visitor Information Centre is located at 100 Hanson Street.
Whitehorse Memory Walk
Well known Whitehorse personalities share their memories of a wide variety of city locations. Former Mayor Bev Buckway revisits her childhood, Yukon MP Larry Bagnell chats about the Williams House, and Ione Christensen discusses Whiskey Flats. A wonderful collection of stories that can be equally enjoyed either while taking a stroll along the map route, or curled up in a chair on a snowy afternoon.
Whitehorse Building Walk
Visit historic buildings and churches, our city hall, and the homes of famous Whitehorse citizens. You’ll see where Pierre Berton was born, T.C. Richards’ entertained and a haunted house inhabited by a mysterious young boy.
Narrator: Sunny Patch.
Whitehorse Art Walk
It’s not all about the Gold Rush — our energetic arts community produces a wealth of public art. Join hometown host, Daniel Ashley, for a scenic waterfront tour discovering sculpture and murals, street art and even a skateboard park! Check out the bonus tracks for more artwork around town.
NOTE: The bust of Angela Sidney (#3) was moved in September 2017 to the northwest corner for Main and Front Streets, across from the Edgewater Hotel.
