Get back to nature in the Yukon wild
Yukon is one of the world’s last pristine places, and we’re fortunate that much of it is protected in wilderness parks.
Iconic wilderness landscapes
Yukoners aren’t the name-dropping kind, unless we’re talking about our cherished wild places. Heard of Tombstone, Kluane or the Chilkoot? Paddled the Alsek, the Snake or the Firth? Our national and territorial parks are world-renowned for signature backcountry hikes and river journeys, as well as day trips, scenic flights and cultural experiences.
Unmatched adventure and wildlife
Imagine floating past calving glaciers, flying over the world’s largest non-polar icefields or hiking through towering peaks. Or taking a stroll on a forest trail, or spotting northern birds and wildlife from a canoe. Our parks are home to a diverse array of northern wildlife, from millions of migratory birds to grizzly bears to the Porcupine caribou herd.
