Explore Your Yukon tourism campaign returns

Yukoners are encouraged to explore businesses and attractions throughout the territory during this year’s Explore Your Yukon tourism campaign which begins today and runs until June 17.

Over 55 participating businesses, historic sites, museums and First Nation cultural centres in 12 communities will offer Yukoners and early season visitors a special incentive to ‘Explore Your Yukon.’

In addition to special offers, participants have the opportunity to enter to win prizes.

Yukon’s vibrant communities are filled with rich cultural attractions, unique local businesses and a welcoming hospitality sector. I encourage all Yukoners to take advantage of the Explore Your Yukon campaign to discover more of what the territory has to offer.

Minister of Tourism and Culture Jeanie Dendys

Who What Where Tours is excited to participate in the Explore Your Yukon campaign once again this year. This program is a fantastic way for Yukoners to learn about amazing and unique Yukon experiences in our very own backyard, and then share those experiences with family, friends and visitors throughout the summer season and beyond. Who What Where Tours looks forward to hosting you on your Yukon adventures!
