Fly Around Mount Logan

Inaccessible from the ground, it’s impossible to know what lies beyond the first peaks in the sheer, striking and magnificent wilderness that encompasses the 22,000 square kilometre Kluane National Park and Reserve. 82% of Kluane’s massive surface area consists of mountain and ice. Discover a world of rock and ice and you fly over glaciers, around Canada’s highest mountain, and across valleys of turquoise braided streams.

Note from Robin :
Flightseeing tours are flexible, so if you have the opportunity, check the weather and wait for clear days when you’ll have a better chance of seeing Mount Logan. Tours can run early in the morning or even under the midnight sun. You’ll be flying in a Cessna 205 on wheels or a Cessna 206 on Tundra Wheels. Don’t worry about gas, these guys can fly for hours! Planes take a max of five passengers.
Kluane National Park is also included in Great Canadian Trail's 7 day Yukon Adventure highlight package.

Once you've seen Kluane from the air, why not explore the region from the ground?

Known as The Land of the Midnight Sun, Yukon Territory is also the land of Canada's highest mountain peaks, legendary northern parks, the world's largest non-polar ice fields, several Canadian Heritage Rivers, and healthy, abundant wildlife. Yukon's jaw-dropping natural features are what set this place apart, with at least twenty mountains in the southwest exceeding 4,000 metres, and a handful exceeding 5,000 metres. The territory is dotted with countless scenic lakes and over 70 canoeable wilderness rivers including the mighty Yukon River, the third longest river in North America. On our Yukon Adventure, we experience first-hand these wonders on guided day hikes in magnificent Kluane National Park and historic Carcross, and on a beginner-friendly canoe trip down the Yukon River. We follow in the footsteps of gold-seekers, as we see remnants of mining along our trails, as we paddle the Yukon, and as we travel on the Klondike Highway. Vast, wild regions and relatively sparse human population make this part of the world a haven for abundant northern species like Dall sheep, caribou, wolves, grizzly bears, lynx, coyotes, foxes, and millions of migratory birds. The possibility for wildlife exists around every bend.


Running end of July to the beginning of September, our Yukon Adventure highlights lets you:

• Visit the home of the largest non-polar icefields in the world, and 17 of Canada’s 20 tallest mountains
• Enjoy incredible day hikes in UNESCO-designated Kluane National Park
• Discover historic towns and artefacts from the gold rush
• Canoe down the iconic Yukon River
• Keep your eyes open for bears, Dall sheep and hundreds of bird species
• Learn about First Nations' culture and history

• 6 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 1 dinner
• 6 nights hotel accommodation based on double occupancy
• Services of a local, experienced wilderness first aid certified guide
• All group safety equipment, including remote area communications, full first aid kit, etc.
• Guided full day canoe trip on Yukon River, including use of all paddling gear
• Private transportation during the trip
