One of the best ways to enjoy Kluane National Park, its mountains, wide valleys, lakes and glaciers is to explore it on foot. Whether you are planning a short walk through the countryside or an extended trek into the wilderness, you will discover excellent hiking alternatives for the novice or expert. The best season for hiking is between June and September, when the trails are dry and the weather is likely to be warm.
* Wildlife Watching
With a good pair of hiking boots, a pair of binoculars for the added pleasure of wildlife watching and all the necessary gear for your trip, you're ready to begin one of the most enjoyable experiences the Yukon has to offer.
* Frederick Lake
An experience of a lifetime is a 3 day trip to Frederick Lake. We have a romantic cabin at this remote lake. The first day you hike along an old trap-line to the cabin. The second day you explore the area. There are a lot of mountains to climb, you can fish the beautiful lake for trout and grayling, you can watch moose, black bear, grizzly, eagle, go for a boat ride or just enjoy the wilderness. The third day you hike back to the lodge.
* Alsek Valley
Another exciting trip follows the Dezadeash River into the Alsek valley. This is the only major river valley flowing from the Yukon to the Pacific and our favorite spot to watch grizzly and dall sheep.
* Auriol Trail
The Auriol trail is a 19 km round trip. The trail gradually climbs through a pleasant spruce forest with occasional open areas providing views of the surrounding mountains.
* Mush Lake Trail
Mush Lake trail follows an old mining road for 21.6 km through a wide forested valley. Abundant wild flowers and a variety of wildlife are the main attractions of this hike. This is an ideal 3 day trip. We have a motor boat on Mush Lake and a canoe on Bates Lake to explore the area.
