Wonderful show of the north, try going there instead of Caribbean. Wow factor is huge.

An absolutely beautiful part of Canada. We were there in 2009, and in spite of some high water due to heavy rains, had a wonderful trip! The flight to Tuktoyaktuk is definitely worth it, as well.

The drive up the Dempster is truly one of the best and most beautiful drives in the world.

The Dempster has stunning scenery, wilderness, grizzly bears, caribou. I was going to write that you should take several spare tires, so it's a relief to read that the road has been resurfaced.

Travelling the Dempster highway, is a most fabulous experience. I would love to do it again, it is like nothing else. I encourage everyone to go and see true wilderness at its best.

I've travelled to many places in the world but our trek along the Dempster Highway definitely rates near the top of memorable excursions. The geographic features all along the route are simply stunning. But, oh the mosquitoes.
By the way, why do people refer to Yukon as "the Yukon." We don't say "the British Columbia" or "the Ontario" or "the Nunavut" or "the Quebec."

I have lived in Whitehorse, and now Inuvik, and have travelled the Dempster a few times. It is gorgeous across seasons - in the fall (early september) the colours are phenomenal, the grandeur in the winter in awe inspiring (and you cross ice bridges, and can keep drivng on the ice roads to Aklavik and Tuk), and the summer is amazing, and a great time to see wildlife. Just give yourself lots of time. If you are travelling in the winter, aiming for late Feb or March will mean lots of daylight. You are less likely to get a flat in the winter, but there is a chance of snow drifts.

And if you are coming up here, look out for Haines Junction and Kluane Park as well - phenomenal! Really any drive you do up here is gorgeous.

These pictures bring back so many wonderful memories of my trip on the Dempster! The Yukon is an incredible place - I hope to return!

We've travelled all our lives - been to Africa, Europe, Aus & NZ, Hawaii, Caribbean, etc including much of Canada and the US. And loved it all. But, the Dempster in 1992 was very special - the scenery, the solitude, the spring flowers, the Richardsons, even saw a family of Grizzlies. Eagle Plains, Inuvik, Arctic Red, the Delta and Tuk were such bonuses. And, did it all with a rented Chevy Cavalier, which I used to disparage, but no longer! Enjoy.

A wide open beautiful highway and a great experience. The vastness of the country makes one feel humble. Please edit articles to correct "the Yukon" to "Yukon".
