Visit a place with more animals than people

Visit a place with more animals than people

Those tired of the rat race might want to consider Yukon in Canada as the destination for their next holiday.

You will certainly not struggle to find peace and quiet in this part of the world, which is roughly the size of France yet has only 34,000 human inhabitants.

In fact, there are far more animals than people, with 160,000 caribou, 70,000 moose, 22,000 mountain sheep, 6,000 grizzly bears and 220 species of birds roaming the spectacular landscapes of forests and 5,000m peaks.

And with around 80 per cent of Yukon untouched wilderness, a trip here really is an antidote to other over-developed parts of the world. With Canada's highest peak, Mount Logan, and one of the largest non-polar ice fields in the world to explore, you can be sure of a breathtaking and peaceful trip.

However, despite its remoteness, there are also some vibrant communities in the Yukon, centred on native beliefs and customs.

The territory is accessed via Whitehorse International Airport, which is a 20-hour indirect flight away from London.
