Into the Yukon Wilderness

Image of people backpacking in Yukon wilderness

The Yukon is a true wilderness. Vast areas are completely undeveloped, and most of the territory is outside of cellular telephone range. If you plan to go out into the backcountry, you're going to be a long way from help.

In many ways, your wilderness travels will be similar to the journeys of the old-time prospectors, trappers and First Nation peoples.

Environment Yukon has published a booklet, Into the Yukon Wilderness, that provides clear and simple guidelines to follow as you plan your backcountry trip. It is available at all Visitor Information Centres and Environment Yukon offices, or you can download a PDF file.
