If you love paddle wheelers or have never been on one, I recommend you do the tour if you have the time. Otherwise you can take a nice free walk along the river and just look at it and pick up a history book.

The Klondike is pretty impressive at first view and is interesting to look around. It’s a shame the tours were closed for the season as I would’ve liked to see more!

Interesting but not worth an extended visit. Good job of restoration but other than photo op not much to do and see.

The S.S. Klondike is a definite must see. The largest remaining stern wheeler in the Northwest. Parks Canada has done an excellent job of restoring the ship to its mid twentieth century grandeur. One of only 3 remaining River Boats in the Yukon and Northwestern...More
