Home to Mount Logan, the highest peak in Canada, snow-capped mountains and stunning glaciers dot the landscape of Kluane. It’s also home to more than 100 species of birds, including the golden and bald eagle.
Covering more than 20,000 square kilometers, nearly 9,000 square miles, the area can be explored by raft, mountain bike or hiking on foot. Horseback riding and fishing are also popular activities. Lake trout, arctic grayling, and sockeye salmon are just a few of the fish species that populate the waters.
Kluane National Park lies within the traditional territories of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations and Kluane First Nation who have a long history of living and harvesting in the region. The park is a designated World Heritage Site and presents an opportunity to explore rich First Nation history and take in truly stunning scenery.
The administrative and reception center for Kluane National Park and Reserve is located in Haines Junction, 100 mi (160 km) west of Whitehorse along the Alaska Highway. Visitors are able to drive into the park at Kathleen Lake and Tachäl Dhäl (Sheep Mountain) but most access into the park is by foot, raft, or skis. Fees vary throughout the park but overnight camping starts at less than $10.
