8 Priceless National Parks

It's impossible to put a value on these amazing destinations. These beautiful oases have helped define a country and will continue to shape its future.

Kluane National Park and Reserve of Canada, Yukon

Kluane (pronounced “Kloo-wah-nee”) is a true national treasure in the true north. More than 20,000 sq. km. in size, its core is a dense collection of giant mountains (including Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak), the world’s largest non-polar icefields and lush valleys than can be taken in by helicopter. The park’s more accessible regions are no less spectacular and are a haven for adventure travelers: in summer, opportunities to camp, hike, fish and raft abound. This is the north as depicted in our national lore, a wild place where miners once panned for gold and golden grizzlies still roam free.

Eco Fact: The Kluane region has experienced the worst outbreak of spruce bark beetle in Canada. Scientist suspect that warmer summers have spurred the growth of beetle populations.
