Caribou Crossing Trading Post is found just north of the historic village of Carcross in Yukon Territory, Canada. An area renowned for its roots in the Gold Rush, Caribou Crossing is just around the corner from historic Lake Bennett and the Chilkoot Trail.
This southern gate to Yukon's interior and the gold fields saw thousands of stampeders pass through during the heyday of the Klondike Gold Rush. Gold seekers used the Chilkoot Trail and crossed over White Pass, where they built rafts at Lake Bennett to float the Yukon River to the golf fields at Dawson City.
Now it's your turn to experience the thrill of a trip to Yukon Territory where it all took place. Just 1½ hours north of Skagway, Alaska, and 45 minutes south of Whitehorse, Yukon, on the South Klondike Highway, Caribou Crossing is also the home of the "Museum of Yukon Natural History" and the new "Caribou Cafe".
