S.S. Klondike National Historic Site of Canada


The British Yukon Navigation (BYN) Company sternwheel fleet plied the upper Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City for the first half of the 20th century. The S.S. Klondike was the largest of the BYN fleet. Originally built in 1929, it sank in 1936, was rebuilt, and launched in the spring of 1937. Located on the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon and restored to its original 1937-40 appearance, the S.S. Klondike pays tribute to an era of riverboat transportation and the inland water transportation system that linked the Yukon to the outside world before the advent of roads.
