Book early!!! Whitehorse's busy tourist season is very much concentrated in July and August. Airline, car rental, hotel, and campground reservations should all be made well in advance, if possible.

Note that there will be a shuttle bus service to and from the model event and all the NAOC and COC arenas.

Many accommodation options are available (camping, hotel, motel, cabin, hostel, bed and breakfast, RV rental). Information on accommodation in the Yukon is available at (aussi en Fran├žais) and

Private Housing Registry

To assist participants in finding accommodations in Whitehorse, Yukon, we have created a private housing registry. This bulletin board has options from local homeowners who wish to rent their homes and empty rooms or billet visitors. It serves as a link between homeowners and orienteering participants. The NAOC Organizing Committee and Yukon Orienteering Association bear no responsibility for rental arrangements or issues between orienteering participants and owners.

Pre-Arranged Hotel Rooms

We have worked with several Whitehorse hotels to have a block of rooms at the hotels reserved for the NAOC & COC 2018. Participants book directly with the hotel of their choice, are responsible for making all payments and following any restrictions/cancellation policies from the particular hotel. Book as early as possible — the number of rooms is limited.

See the map below for the hotel locations.
