2. Whitehorse: Kluane National Park & Haines Junction Day Trip
Explore Haines Junction and Kluane National Park, one of Canada’s most beautiful National Parks, first-hand. Get a thrilling insight into the region's history before westerners discovered it and before the Klondike Gold Rush.
Meet your guide at the meeting point in Whitehouse then set off on the Alaska Highway in a comfortable minibus toward Kluane National Park. On the way, marvel at the awe-inspiring views of the magnificent mountains that make up the park. Keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready for possible wildlife encounters — with bears, elk, and other wild animals — at the edge of the road.
With countless photographic opportunities to come, make sure your camera has enough memory space for the trip. In Haines Junction, you'll have a chance to visit one of the prettiest visitor centers in Canada, Da Ku Cultural Centre. Here, learn about the First Nations, the national park, and the world's largest non-polar ice field within the park.
After that, take a small stroll along Kathleen Lake, which borders Kluane National Park, and enjoy its serenity and stunning view to the mountains. Discover a seasonal traditional fishing village with a visit to Klukshu Village before making your way back to the original meeting point in Whitehouse.
