Our second to last night in Whitehorse was a typical Yukon cultural “mash-up” as there was a Yukon French Canadian BBQ at the campground that we were staying at, which resulted in a mix of English, Franglais and French being spoken.
In addition to the historic tours that we did in Whitehorse, there is one other tour that must be included in an itinerary to the Yukon – the Yukon Brewing Company Factory tour. This small brewery has very good beer, that is microfiltered and has no preservatives. They offer seven different beers, each of which was generously sampled. They have a special deal for locals, where you can purchase a 2 liter jug, and bring it back in for refills from the tap, and pay only for the liquid that you purchase. Quite a few people came in during the time we were sampling the beer. Unfortunately, the new travel restrictions prevented us from buying liquid souvenirs, so we had to settle for a T shirt instead!
This capped the end of a great trip to the Canadian North, that we highly recommend everyone doing at least once. We had such a great time, that we are thinking of going back next year and driving from Skagway on the Pacific coast of Alaska to Inuvik at the top of the Dempster Highway on the Beaufort Sea. Stay tuned!
