Dawson City is a well preserved, living and breathing cultural and historic oasis tucked away in the middle of the Yukon wilderness. Once referred to as the “Paris of the North”, its name is synonymous with the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. In summer, Dawson is a carnival by day and a circus by night, brimming with art, music, literary, and natural history festivals. It is populated by colorful local characters even Robert Service or Jack London would have a hard time dreaming up.
