Our team is working hard to finish the re-design of the Thachal Dhal Visitor Centre for Parks Canada in the Yukon! Kluane – high in the mountains of southwest Yukon – is a land of extremes. The park is home to Canada’s highest peak (5,959-metre Mount Logan), its largest ice field and North America’s most genetically diverse grizzly population. Travellers from around the world come to traverse alpine passes on backcountry odysseys and raft past calving glaciers. With exceptional day hikes and highway-side scenery, Kluane awes from every angle. Stay tuned!
The town of Haines Junction offers a convenient base for exploration. From there, Haines Highway leads south and the Alaska Highway leads north along the park’s eastern edge, with access to hiking and camping. The park’s interior is generally accessible only via a flightseeing tour or on a serious mountaineering/ski touring expedition.
Sheep Mountain in Kluane National Park and Reserve is a popular location for viewing Dall’s Sheep. Dall's Sheep spend the summer grazing in alpine meadows atop the peaks. In the fall the sheep move to their winter range a few kilometers away where the wind keeps the snow shallow and the sun warms south-facing slopes. They will use the same migration routes for generations and return to the same protective cliffs to give birth to their lambs every year.
Situated in the Ä’äy Chù (Slim's River) Valley, the Thachäl Dhäl Visitor Centre is one the visitor centres for Kluane National Park and Reserve. It features exhibits, information on hiking and other activities, and backcountry registrations. Our team is completing a major re-design of the visitor centre for Parks Canada which will open in 2019!
