In the morning we’ll drive the scenic Alaska highway to Kluane National Park. Your first views of the Kluane mountains are sure to amaze. Upon arrival in Haines Junction you will have time to visit the cultural and visitors centres to learn more about the area before we go to set up our base camp. In the afternoon we'll get in our first little hike to get up close and personal with one of Canada’s most majestic landscapes. Overnight at the base camp. Lunch and Dinner included.
Time for your first full day hike in Kluane! Based on the level of skill/fitness of the group members, a hike will be selected and you're off on and adventure into the mountains full of alpine wildlife (including Dall sheep, grizzly and black bears, pika, and many other species), glacial streams, and jaw-dropping views. You can expect to enjoy a well-deserved meal cooked over the fire after your hike! Overnight at the base-camp. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Another day, another day hike! Kluane’s hikes are all unique and offer incredible views from various elevations and viewpoints. A second day hike is an opportunity to experience the beauty of Kluane from a new perspective! After an amazing day you'll spend the night relaxing on the shores of one of Kluane’s stunning lakes. Overnight at the base-camp. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
After we have packed up our tents there is time for one last hike in Kluane before we make our way back to Whitehorse.
