Behold! An empire of mountains and ice. Here in a vast international preserve, are most of the tallest peaks in North America and the largest icefields outside the polar caps. Over half the land mass is permanently draped in snow and ice – the remainder fosters forests and tundra and stable populations of eagles, grizzlies and other species often at risk elsewhere.

The impressive natural landscape of Kluane is part of the traditional territory of the Southern Tutchone people represented in the Kluane region by the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations and the Kluane First Nation. Today, Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, Kluane First Nation and Parks Canada are jointly responsible for the management of the park’s natural and cultural resources.

Cory Trépanier TrueWild:Kluane

Cory Trépanier's first expedition for TrueWild took him on a month-long journey to the Yukon's Kluane National Park and Reserve, where he painted and filmed Mount Logan, the highest peak in Canada, hiked the Donjek Route, canoed on Mush and Bates Lakes and rafted the Alsek River.
