The cleanest air in the world is found in the largest city in northern Canada, Whitehorse in the Yukon. A low population, strict clean air regulations and a favorable climate are contributing factors to having the cleanest air in the world.
The Yukon is one of the best places in North America to see the Aurora borealis or the Northern lights. Aurora borealis means the dawn of the north, and it is a natural display of lights in the Earth’s sky. The display of pale green and pink dancing lights of the aurora are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere.
