Some more general travel information as given by Tourism Yukon:
Two main routes lead from British Columbia: the Alaska Highway begins at Dawson Creek and stretches for 2,233 kilometres (1,388 miles) before reaching Delta Junction, Alaska. It's asphalt-surfaced and you'll find gas, food and lodging every 32-80 km (20-50 miles). The Stewart-Cassiar Highway winds through B.C.'s interior, meeting the Alaska Highway 22 km (14 miles) west of Watson Lake, Yukon. It has been upgraded to all-weather status but is a remote road: plan ahead for gas, food and lodging as services are limited along the route.
The Yukon is less that a day's flight from any North American city. Daily flights run from Vancouver to Whitehorse; scheduled air service is also available from Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska.
Regularly scheduled ferry service to Alaska and the Yukon runs from Bellingham, Wash., and Vancouver, B.C. The trip up the Inside Passage is a favourite way to travel north: the scenery is breathtaking and the route is teeming with eagles, whales and other wildlife. Reservations are required; call 1-800-642-0066 for Alaska Ferry information, or 1-250-386-3431 for B.C. Ferry schedules.
Scheduled motorcoach service to the Yukon is available six days a week from Edmonton, Alberta, and from Vancouver, B.C.
