Welcome to Carcross Commons

Touch a totem pole. Talk with the artisan. Walk in the footsteps of Skookum Jim and feel the spirit of a people who have lived in this breathtaking confluence of rivers, lakes and ancient trade routes for over 10,000 years.

Start your adventure in Carcross with a gourmet coffee or baked delight from Caribou Coffee and end it with a slice from Gold Pan Pizza or a leisurely lakeshore salmon bake dinner at the Bistro on Bennett — all under the magic of the midnight sun.

Prefer a desert to a dessert? Take a leisurely walk through the silky sand of the world's smallest desert or explore Montana Mountain — proudly standing sentinel over the community and host of the best and most scenic network of mountain biking and hiking trails across the country and around the world.

If cultural exploration is more your pace, historic Carcross will take you back in time to the spirit of the world famous Klondike Gold Rush and the stories and traditions of the region's first peoples.

Only a 45-minute drive south of Whitehorse or north of Skagway, Carcross Commons is a unique retail village featuring stunning Tlingit-inspired facades and totem poles and is host to shops and restaurants, an art gallery and totem carving shed and the Carcross Visitor Information Centre.

Come play for a day in the Carcross Commons and let us take your breath away.

Open seven days a week to mid-September.
