Welcome to Kluane National Park

Kluane National Park

This vast park is dominated by mountains and ice in Canada's extreme alpine zone, and is a magnet to mountaineers and rugged adventure-seekers. The landscape includes mountain lakes, alpine meadows, tundra and swift cold rivers. At the heart of the park is Mount Logan, rising up in the midst of an ice field to 19,545 feet (5,959m), the highest mountain in Canada. Local tour operators in Yukon towns offer a variety of memorable day trips and excursions into the Park, featuring a wide range of activities such as canoeing, nature walks, rafting, fishing, hiking and mountain-biking. Air flips over the area are also a very popular way to sightsee. The Kluane National Park Visitor Reception Centre is at Haines Junction near the Alaska Highway.

Information & Facts

Admission to the park is free, while camping is C$15.70 per site, and C$4.90 per individual per night
The official languages are English and French (predominantly in Quebec).

The currency used is the Canadian Dollar (CAD), which is divided into 100 cents. One-dollar coins are also known as loonies (due to the picture of a loon, a type of bird, on the coin), and two-dollar coins as toonies. Banks and bureaux de change will change money and travellers cheques, as will some hotels, but the rate will not be as good. Major credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are plentiful. US Dollars are largely accepted, though due to fraud, larger notes might not be and change is usually given in Canadian dollars.

Opening Times
The Kluane Visitor Centre is open daily, from 9am to 5pm from mid-May to mid-September, and by appointment for the rest of the year
Canada covers six time zones, from GMT 8 in the west to GMT -3.5 in the east.
