Dawson City flight - fly to Klondike boom town
Come to the Yukon with cheap flights to Dawson City - the town that went from mining camp to boom town and where gold, whisky and wild women were once the order of the day! Dawson City was first settled in 1896 when gold was found on Bonanza Creek and it mushroomed overnight into ‘the Paris of the north’ because of the amount of caviar, champagne and fine silk dresses seen in town. Eventually the gold seam ran out, the dance halls and the bawdy saloons closed and Dawson City quietened to the town on the edge of the wilderness that it is today. With Dawson City flights you can still see authentic buildings from the gold rush era, from Klondike Kate’s restaurant and the miners’ cabins to the beautifully restored Commissioner’s mansion. You can get a sense of ‘the call of the wild’ as you hike the trails that American author, Jack London must have done before including Dawson City in his famous novel.
