Getting around in the Yukon area is very simple. Busses and airplanes connect most of the major cities in the province, but this the best way around is in a car. There are car rental places in both Whitehorse and Dawson City. When driving around though remember two things; most of the roads are in good condition but there are plenty of gravel roads about, and the price of fuel can be quite high so budget correctly.
