    I know it's an unusual spot so I don't expect many responses (if any), but there was an awesome seat sale on that I decided to take advantage of so I booked a trip June 7th to June 10th to Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada). The 10th is a travel day so basically I've got 3 days in the land of the midnight sun. For anyone who's been to the Yukon...any suggestions?

    I've never been to Whitehorse, but I've been to Alaska and other rural northern regions of Canada, and I hate to say it, but as the other poster said, you are going in the heart of bug season. I am actually planning a trip up to rural NE Canada, and I'm holding off till September because of the bugs alone. Of course your probably pretty familiar with the concept of bugs since BC is pretty far north already. Are you camping or staying in a hotel? It is neat to be out and about at 2 AM in daylight though. Whitehorse is also on the route to Alaska, so I'm sure it is setup for tourists more so than other similar settlements. I like to go Kayaking when I'm in that country, but it sounds like your flying so that would make it harder unless you rent one. Whatever you decide to do, have a good time.

    Thanks for the feedback! I live in a region of BC where bugs are pretty much a nonissue (I'm lucky, I know) but I was aware I'd need bug spray. I appreciate the confirmation that I'll need it haha

    I will be staying in a hostel. After that I'm doing some research on things to do while I'm there. Cheers and thanks for the response
