Kluane National Park is an awesome playground for hikers of all levels, but for those ready to hike beyond the first mountain range, the potential is almost limitless. This is what Terre Boréale tapped into when creating this unique itinerary in 2019: 7 days of guided adventure in the remote wilderness of the park!
Either you come during the full swing of summer in July or during the fall colours of late August, you will be amazed by all the colours around you: flower, grasses, rivers, lakes, skies (with potential northern lights in August), glaciers in the distance and even the mineral mountains themselves, all work in harmony to bring this world to life!
Along the way, we have 2 extra days which allows us to go exploring around 2 of our 4 camps without our full backpacks. Given that there are no trails in the area, these exploration days are very flexible and can be adapted to the group.
Wildlife is abundant in this part of the park but seeing it is never guaranteed. That’s why we always hike with our binoculars on our chests, ready for action! In the past, we have observed grizzly bears, Dall sheep, golden eagles, peregrine falcons, wolves and even a wolverine!
Unique trek going where no other company goes!
Hike for 7 days in remote wilderness, included 2 days with light packs
Fantastic opportunity for wildlife viewing (bears, sheep, etc.)

I travelled with Terre Boréale with Max as guide through the beautiful and remote Olgilvie Range near Tombstone. It was an amazing experience backpacking through true wilderness. Max is a highly skilled guide who has great route finding skills, and is expert in mountain and bush travel. And a sense of humour and patience! All food is home dehydrated, carefully crafted and delicious. Max is extremely knowledgeable about the birds and animals in the Yukon, and their lives and habits and is happy to impart his knowledge and passion. We saw caribou, Dall sheep, marmots, pikas, grizzlies, and lynx ... golden eagles, and peregrines and many more birds! Also the amazing aurora borealis!! It was a challenging and rewarding journey, a real immersion in the wild. Max and Milena offer a special experience. Highly recommended!
Me and my sister booked two nights of Northern Lights Tours with Terre Boreále and I’m so glad we chose this company! Max our guide/company owner was amazing! He picked us up from our hotel and drove us out to some remote locations. We kept moving the first night so we could "chase the lights" essentially. He supplied hot tea, hot water bottles, camping chairs, delicious homemade cookies, and even hand and feet warmers when my sister decided to almost freeze to death LOL. The second night he took us to a different location since we had already been to the others. This was a frozen lake. We arrived just in time for an amazing northern lights display. He took some professional photos with his camera of us and emailed them to us. He also helped me program my camera for the best chance of catching some photos of the lights. Overall this was a 10/10 experience for us. I would recommend this company and tour to anyone heading to Whitehorse!
Six-day trek in the Yukon wilderness that surpassed all my expectations. You don't need to be a hero to do it – the guides are experts at getting ordinary mortals to do extraordinary things. Max is a remarkable guide, ably assisted by Boris. You do need to be reasonably fit and have decent gear; backpacking boots make a difference when you're hiking in the tundra. This trip ranks up there with my Annapurna trek more than 30 years ago. I cannot recommend this expedition outfit enough. I hope to do another trip with them next year!
