The Klondike Gold Rush

The Sights and Sounds of the Yukon

Clip | 3m 7s

The Klondike region spans thousands of miles from Alaska across Canada’s Yukon Territory. The area is incredibly remote. In fact, Dawson City lies only three hundred miles from the arctic circle. The landscape is marked with mountain ranges, raging rivers, and seemingly endless wide-open spaces. This video expresses the pristine beauty and natural sounds of this unique part of North America.
