Yukon River

Yukon RiverThe Yukon River is among the longest rivers in North America. It begins in Canada, in a collection of small lakes in far northwestern British Columbia. Then it flows westward throughout Canada’s Yukon and throughout Alaska in america, the place it empties into the Bering Sea. The river’s complete size is 1,979 miles (three,185 kilometers).

The Yukon River is frozen for as much as seven months of the yr. Boats can journey on almost all elements of the river when it isn’t frozen. Within the 1890’s, through the early mining days of Alaska and the well-known Klondike Gold Rush in Yukon, the river was the primary journey route.
