Dawson City Overview

  • The Bonanza Creek is the richest paying dirt in the world, and the National Park Service has preserved and interpreted some of the prospecting sites. At km. 10 (mile 6.2), you can even try your hand at panning for gold!
  • Visit Dawson City in the warmer months, as most tourist attractions are only open in the summer.
  • Gold City Tours offers personalized bus tours of local towns, rivers, gold mines and a trip up Midnight Dome.
  • Midnight Dome is a hill running alongside Dawson City, covered in trees. Since Dawson City is only 300 km (186 mi.) south of the Arctic Circle, from its summit at midnight on June 21st, you can watch the sun fall to the horizon before rising immediately afterwards.
