Vuntut National Park was established in 1995 as part of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation Final Land Claim Agreement. Vuntut means "among the lakes" in the Gwitchin language. The park encompasses 4,345 square kilometres of wilderness in the northwestern corner of Yukon.

Vuntut National Park offers a range of wilderness opportunities from canoeing the Old Crow River, to hiking in the mountainous, to winter ski trips. Visitors must be entirely self-sufficient and able to handle any medical or weather-related emergency on their trip. There are neither facilities nor developed trails in the park. Visit John Tizya Centre in the community of Old Crow to learn about Vuntut Gwitchin culture and the park.
