We took a walk on the-raised boardwalk and enjoyed seeing the edge of the lake. You were able to continue around the lake in both directions as long as you would like. However this is a large lake so beware. There are only outhouses here...More

It was beautiful in a 'hot' sunny summer day. Was there for work but lucky has half day to spare. Took the chance to roam around. It is somewhat different from Banff & Jasper that I visit frequently. Also, this is an unique place that...More

Fresh air....mountains....and water what more can you ask for? The views are breathtaking. There is a small shelter where you can bring your lunch and eat while staying dry or sit along the waters edge. The lake is surrounded by mountains. Our guide told us...More

I didn't go fishing when I was there but yes you need a special license to fish in Kluane National Park. Google National Parks and you should find out where to go to get the license. It's a beautiful spot.... enjoy!
