You could continue beyond Dawson to Eagle at 525 miles from Whitehorse, or to Circle at 673 miles. Those are the only other two possibilities for reasonable extraction until you reach the Dalton Highway bridge north of Fairbanks. You can hire regular transport back to Fairbanks from Dalton, and to Whitehorse from Dawson. But from Eagle or Circle it might be more difficult and expensive to return to civilization. But there is no need to hurry, as there is much to see along the way, especially in Dawson City. It's a fun town, even if a little "touristy". We paddled the 1000 mile race to the Dalton bridge in little more than 6 days, but by rights it should take a month to enjoy all there is to see and explore along the river.
