Sometimes you just want to escape the World, and by World I mean people. Two hours west of Whitehorse on the doorstep of Kluane National Park and a nine-minute drive from Haines Junction is Mount Logan Lodge. You are surrounded by wilderness in the comfort of a log cabin and taken care of by hosts David and Roxanne. Whether you want to spend the day fishing, dog mushing, glacier flightseeing or white water rafting the choice is yours. Curling up with a good book by the fireplace is also an option and one I highly recommend after a fun day exploring the wilderness at your doorstep.
The Lodge is an intimate getaway compromised of three “suites” and two smaller guest rooms in the main log cabin. There is also a Yurt and the Old God Rush Cabin that are separate guest suites for those that want a bit of privacy from the main lodge.
I slept in the “Family Room” complete with two queen beds and an ensuite bathroom. Let me take you on a tour.

Perfect for families and friends that want to share a room. @travelyukon #ExploreYukon #explorecanada #hainesjunction #kluane #kluanenationalpark
The main floor of the lodge is where all the meals and communal gathering takes place. This is what a wilderness retreat looks and feels like.
Your hosts David and Roxanne really make you feel like you are at home, except you don’t have to cook or do dishes. Breakfast is included with your stay and If you wish you can add dinner as well for an additional $30 per person. I was treated to a delicious Eggs Benedict for breakfast and Raclette for dinner. Raclette is a meal made up of grilling various meats and vegetables and then eating them with melted cheese. It’s perfect for a lazy community meal at the end of a fabulous day. Melted cheese, a glass of wine and laughter with friends. Yum!
The Lodge staff are not just here to cook for you. They also offer extensive experiences you can choose from. Fishing all year round, winter adventures such as snowmobiling, dog mushing and snowshoeing can all be arranged for you. Or perhaps your into wildlife viewing and photography. The team at Mount Logan Lodge is there to help you craft your perfect Yukon adventure summer or winter.
