Discover Dawson

Dawson City is an eclectic and vibrant northern community on the banks of the Yukon River. We boast a mixture of First Nations Heritage and Gold Rush History blended with an active Gold Mining and Tourism Industry as well as a thriving Arts scene.  In brief, we’ve got everything you’re looking for in a northern town!

Dawson’s past is marked by Beringia, an Ice Age period which formed our unique landscape and the treasures they contain, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, who have called this area home for centuries, as well as the Klondike Gold Rush, that put this town on the tongue of stampeders worldwide.

Dawson today is colorful and involved community that still has the look and feel of a wild-west town, with the personalities to boot. Miners, Artists, Wanderers, and the First Nations still call this place home.
