Nature and science
Situated in northern Yukon, above the Arctic Circle, Vuntut is one of Canada’s most remote national parks. It is a vast and evocative landscape, ranging from the wetlands of Van Tat, the Old Crow Flats, to the rolling hills and rocky peaks of the British Mountains.
Vuntut encompasses 4,345 sq. km. of wilderness in the northwestern corner of the Yukon Territory. It protects a representative example of the Northern Yukon Natural Region.
This land is home to one of the great natural wonders of the world, the annual migration of the Porcupine Caribou Herd -- one of the largest caribou herds in North America.
Vuntut National Park, along with Ivvavik National Park and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge represent an international effort to protect a major northern ecosystem defined in part by the Porcupine Caribou Herd.
