The unbelievable vastness and beauty of Kluane National Park
Kluane National Park is located in the lower southwestern corner of the Yukon Territory, with an area covering around 22.000 square kilometers of vast wilderness. It’s landscape is filled with glaciers and mountains, which overlap far into neighboring Alaska on the west and southwest side. Among the mountains is Canada’s highest peak, Mt. Logan, rising a stunning 5959 m above sea level.
Derived from the native word Łù’àn, meaning “big fish”, Kluane lies within the traditional territories of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations and Kluane First Nation who have a long history of living in this region. For thousands of years they have been the true masters of hunting, gathering and traveling in this land of extremes.
Home to a wide variety of plant and wildlife species, over 100 species of bird can be found here and dozens of bigger and smaller mammals live here, including caribou, black bear, wolverine, marmot and beaver. The countless lakes and streams are abound with fish species like lake trout and pike.
All this means Kluane is a true backpackers paradise. It offers many backpacking possibilities: from short 1 night trips to extended trekking deep into the wilderness, and from following hiking trails to having to navigate yourself and explore your own way.
