It’s in our nature
About 80% of the Yukon is wilderness, so it’s no surprise that there are endless places to hike. No matter where you are in the territory, you’ll find nature trails nearby. Some are popular and well-used, with interpretive signs that point out different plants, birds and historic sites along the way. Others go deep into untouched wilderness where the only sign of civilization is the trail. Or you may choose to grab a map and go where there's no trail at all.
Discover hidden lakes, follow rivers and canyons, and hike up to unforgettable panoramic views. With countless trails, there’s hiking for every length and every skill level. Go for an hour or explore for days. Meander out to a picturesque picnic spot just a few minutes from town or challenge yourself with a multi-day expedition to the edge of a glacier. It’s a land made for exploring, and hiking is a great way to experience it.
