Coming to the Yukon
In the past it was the gold rush
to make a fortune with a claim.
Many people came to Whitehorse,
some by foot, by ship or by train.
Most of them left poor the Yukon.
Just a few could reach this goal.
They could not enjoy the beauty
which this land can give the soul.
Fortunately the times have changed,
other reasons now to come.
Fishing, hunting, hiking, biking
but also still panning for some.
Dreaming now about the Yukon
means to see this breathtaking place
diving into this unique nature
with this very own pace.
While the gold rush it was a struggle
now it’s just an easy flight.
And when Condor is reaching Whitehorse
you get as a welcome a beautiful sight.
Dreams come true with this arrival,
pick up the motor home and drive
through the spectacular famous Yukon
which is larger than the life.
