Kluane National Park

How wild is Kluane National Park? Check out these stats: the park is over 22,000 km2 in size, and 82% of it is covered in mountains and ice.

It’s home to the St. Elias Mountains, the most massive range in Canada, and the second highest peak on the continent, Mount Logan. To cap it off, Kluane has the largest non-polar ice fields on the planet.

Sound forbidding? Not at all! Everyone from the casual day hiker to the serious outbacker is rewarded for visiting this UNESCO World Heritage Site—and the expert guides of Yukon Wild can make sure that’s what happens for you.

Some of our favourite Kluane experiences

Hiking and Camping

It’s as if Kluane was built to be hiked, and every level of hiker will love it here. If you’re the serious backpacking sort, one of our guides can take you deep into the remote regions of the park where there are no trails, only routes. We’ll camp amongst the alpine tundra and leave no trace of our passing. Perhaps we’ll follow a route through the Coast Mountains where we’ll see hanging glaciers, impressive cirques, and possibly (make that probably!) some of the mammals that live in this part of the park, such as Dall sheep and mountain goats.

Want an extreme experience? Consider taking a longer hike in (or a floatplane—we can arrange that) to experience the Donjek route, which takes you right to the toe of a majestically impressive glacier.

Hiking and Cabins

Not into sleeping on the ground? Our Yukon Wild guides can set up a series of day hikes with all the payoffs and thrills of a backcountry hike—except you won’t be carrying a full pack on your back and you’ll stay in a comfy cabin at night.

Canoeing

Our guides can take you to a place where you’re almost guaranteed to have the whole lake to yourself! We’ll make sure to bring along rods and reels, too, as the lakes in Kluane’s “greenbelt” are excellent for catching lake trout, pike, and grayling.
