Cabin-based hiking trip into Kluane National Park, Yukon


Explore Kluane National Park on foot without a heavy pack on this camp-based hiking tour. 

Seven day hikes out of Haines Junction combine the best of two worlds: We get into great back country without having to carry heavy backpacks since we set up base camp in cabins just outside the park. Day trips of 3 to 8 hours* will bring us into unrivalled wilderness. The trails will lead us from the boreal forest to the alpine. We will have ample opportunity to observe nature, take pictures and enjoy spectacular vistas. While visiting a traditional fishing camp, you will experience the local First Nation’s history of the region.

Kluane National Park (pronounced "Kloo - wah – nee) covers an area of 21,980 square kilometres. It is a land of an impressive diversity. The extensive mountain massive of the Wrangell – St. Elias chain is part of the Kluane National Park. Mount Logan, 5959m, Canada's highest mountain, is within the park boundaries. The park has the most extensive non-polar ice fields in the world. The park protects valleys and alpine tundra that yield a unique array of plant and wildlife species. 

Kluane has the largest diversity of pacific and arctic flora north of the 60th parallel. Summer wildflowers include arctic poppies, purple saxifrage, mountain heather, and moss campion. Animal populations include dall sheep, mountain goats, moose, caribou, grizzly, marmot, ground squirrel and pika. The birdlife is equally diverse and ptarmigan, owls, eagles and peregrine falcons can be encountered.
