Feel the spirit of Vuntut National Park as you immerse yourself in a prehistoric landscape that predates the last ice age. Scan the horizon and see thousands of caribou crossing mountains into river valleys. Stand in the warm golden light of the midnight sun and witness the explosion of life on the summer tundra. Here, arctic wildflowers and rare plants thrive as they did when this land was part of the Beringia Region.
