Welcome to Carcross
Klondike prospectors who conquered the infamous Chilkoot Pass on their way to the Klondike gold fields took a much needed break in the small settlement of Caribou Crossing; today known as Carcross.  The name derives from the magnificent herds of caribou that crossed through the area on their historical annual migration.  Today Carcross is a thriving community known for its tourism opportunities and remarkable outdoor adventure sports.
