Dawson City

Dawson City

Dawson City is a great consideration for a stop off if you're on a twin or multi-centre holiday to Canada. This very interesting place was the centre of the Klondike Gold Rush. It began back in 1896 and changed this First Nations base camp into a bustling city of 40,000 people by 1898. By 1899, the gold rush had completely finished and the town's population inevitably plummeted as 8,000 people up and left. When Dawson was officially known as a city in 1902, the population was then actually under 5,000. An interesting National Historic Site is here, St. Paul's Anglican Church, which was built that same year. The City of Dawson and the nearby spooky ghost town of Forty Mile are featured famously in the novels of American author Jack London, including The well known 'The Call of the Wild.' Jack London actually lived in the Dawson area between 1897 and 1898. Other well known authors who lived in and wrote of Dawson City's escapades include Pierre Burton and Robert Service.

Like most of the Yukon land mass, Dawson City also has a subarctic climate The average temperature in July is 15.7 °C, so a coat is required! In January it is an incredible −26.0 °C! However, the highest temperature ever recorded since records began is a surprising 34.7 °C. In stark contrast, on February 11 1979, the lowest temperature recorded was a tear freezing −55.8 °!
