Chasing the midnight sun, trip to the Yukon

A Trip to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory


The land is a mountain biker’s playground.

In between British Columbia and Alaska is the Yukon Territory where the sun does not set during the summer. Mountain biking exists there and it is surprisingly interesting and varied. Incredible vistas are the norm as riders take it all the hours in, with few distractions.

Episode Description: Summer in Canada’s Yukon Territory has no shortage of daylight, and thus no reason to hurry. At 17, Dylan Sherrard moved away from Whitehorse to pursue a life of mountain biking, a path that would ultimately bring him back as his hometown became a sought-after destination for riding in the north. Fully embracing the leisurely pace of life, Dylan introduces Jaime Hill and Claire Buchar to some of his favorite people and places.


This is where Whitehorse, Yukon Territory is.

North of Canada, incredible trail riding exists. It’s not year-round riding but on long summer days, daylight never ceases.
