Yukon Quest – Dawson City Layover
The Yukon Quest Trail follows historical Gold Rush and mail delivery dog sled routes from the turn of the 20th Century. Once the transportation “highways” of the Northern frontier, the trail now comes alive each February with the frosty breath and haunting howls of hundreds of sled dogs. Up to 50 dog teams consisting of one human ‘musher’ and 14 canine athletes tread across some of the last pristine wilderness remaining in North America.
Dawson City marks the finish line for the teams racing the Q450, the longest distance in the Yukon Quest currently being run. There will be a concession , warm-up area, and greeting area that allows you to get close to the athletes and enjoy the action! So bundle warming and bring the whole family out to cheer on these incredible teams!
