Kluane National Park, Yukon Territory, Canada

A flight into the interior of the St. Elias Mountain Range in Kluane National Park and Reserve reveals magnificent rivers of ice and the spectacular scenery of the Kaskawulsh Glacier. Pilot Andy Williams of Icefield Ranges Expeditions lands us on the Seward Glacier for an up close and personal view of majestic Mt. Logan, Canada’s highest mountain. This trip, into the southwest corner of Canada’s Yukon Territory, ranks as one of my all-time favourite experiences. Home to Canada’s highest mountains and biggest glaciers, Kluane encompasses the largest non-polar icefield in the world and has a diversity of plant and wild life. These factors resulted in the park being one of the first places designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. We were based in Haines Junction and while exploring the lakes and rivers in and around the park, visited an aboriginal fishing village and had a few wildlife encounters.
