11) Kluane National Park, Yukon
Kluane National Park has much to draw the hardier outdoor enthusiasts. Home to the tallest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan, has a breathtaking glacier landscape, and tundra. Hikers, mountaineers and rafters flock to the park. In winter, the park can be traversed on dog sleds. From May to September, the campground by Kathleen Lake is open. Cooking at the campsite is a huge money-saver, however, during bear season it is required to store food in bear-safe containers. Visitors wishing to hike deeper into the park and set up camp can do so, however, camping in the ice-fields requires a backcountry permit. For those that would like to see the park, but the camping experience seems too intense, the small town of Haines Junction, with its population numbering fewer than 600 residents, is the gateway to the park and offers some reasonable motel and hotel options.
