Quest for the Yukon


Aboard the planes of Condor Air, they come,

to marvel at Kluane’s soaring peaks,

and see moose feed beneath the Midnight Sun          

retracing steps of those who gold did seek.

“Larger than Life”, the Yukon’s creed exclaims,

come see the sky filled up with dancing light,

find open spaces where wildlife remains;

from Europe to Whitehorse – an easy flight.

If memories like gold you wish to store,

the Yukon beckons with an untamed heart;

the Dempster, Dawson City, and much more,

are waiting here for your first trip to start.

From Europe find the Yukons’ wild mystique.

Come see the North, make memories unique.
