Things To Do


Whitehorse has some great public and private recreation facilities to keep you fit and active!

Hiking Trails

You can walk out the Cultural Centre doors and immediately be on a paved pathway that winds along the Yukon River. This trail connects to the popular Millenium Trail, a 5 kilometre trail that loops around the east and west banks of the river. It takes you by popular attractions such as the Historic SS Klondike Sternwheeler, Centennial Bridge, Fish Ladder, and the Whitehorse Dam.

Or you can opt for a longer trip and walk or run along the banks of Schwatka Lake and along to Miles Canyon. To learn more about this trail and the 150 kilometres of other trails in Whitehorse, download the Trail Map or visit the City of Whitehorse’s Trails Finding Tool.

Should you choose to hike during your stay, please be safe: Dress appropriately and let a fellow delegate or staff member know when you expect to return.

Arts and Culture

Whitehorse has an incredibly vibrant arts and culture community with numerous festivals and special events year-round. For information on what the community has to offer during your visit, please take a look at the North of Ordinary Arts Magazine, browse the What’s Up Yukon Event Page on their website, or visit the Yukon Arts Centre website.
