Hiking to the Donjek Glacier-Yukon

The Donjek Route is definitely not a trail; it is not marked or maintained in any manner, so it will be a real wilderness experience. The Donjek Route rises over the vast alpine of the Burwash Uplands and then descends to the toe of the Donjek Glacier. You may rely on our experienced guide for route finding, map and compass skills and creek/river crossing skills.

It is a very difficult route, with fast rivers and creeks, rock fall, difficult terrain, inclement weather and wildlife encounters (Dall sheep, Grizzly bears, etc.). Weather conditions may change dramatically and September can already be quite cold. But you’ll be rewarded with a close-up experience of the magnificent wilderness of the Kluane backcountry. During the nights we maybe seen the Northen Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing over the mountains. A magical experience, thar will leave you with unforgettble memories for sure!

The views and vistas of the majestic Donjek Glacier are unimaginably impressive, it is definitely worthwhile the effort. It is a fantastic hike through pristine mountain wilderness, an experience you’ll not soon forget!
If you're looking for a very special backpaking adventure, then get your backpack ready, strap on your hiking boots, charge your camera and join Nature Tours of Yukon for an adventure of a lifetime!

This is a -No Trace- Wilderness Tour:
Take only photos, leave nothing but footprints.
