Lake Laberge is a widening of the Yukon River north of Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. It is fifty kilometres long and ranges from two to five kilometres wide. It is about 30-40 minutes drive from the city of Whitehorse. Its water is always very cold, and its weather often harsh and suddenly variable.
The Pelly river of the Yukon originates west of the Mackenzie Mountains and flows 530 km (329 miles) long through the south central Yukon. The Pelly has two main tributaries, the Ross and Macmillan rivers.
