  If you are planning to visit the Yukon you might want to fly into Whitehorse. Its a long drive from all major cities.( e,g, 2400 kms from Vancouver ).

  Another thing is not to beat up your own vehicle by driving it up there, I,ve seen some nut-jobs who bring their little cars on the gravel roads.
  Rent a Camper or Pick-up, there is a couple of good rental places who will also rent you Satellite phones as there is no Cell service on back roads. Be sure to insure the phones as they are over $5000 to replace. I rented when I lived there as I only had my work truck and the long wheel base made it no good for some narrow roads.

     You know I did,nt like living there and there was at that time no decent bar around. They were all soulless places. Eating out was down to a couple of good spots.

  One of the best trips is to drive to Skagway and get the Ferry to Juneau, the capital of Alaska.

   A shorter trip is to take the ferry to Haines.  Its about a 45 minute boat ride.

     There are 4 roads in the Yukon to explore from Whitehorse #2,  #4, #6,and the Dempster Hwy.all are gravel except #2 to Dawson City,

     On the gravel roads some parts are shale which will rip tires to shred, so go with big lug terrain tires on your unit.
     
     I hav,nt went up the Dempster farther than Military Crossing. Never got up to Eagle Plains. Have driven all the following roads.
