The Ruby Range trekking is a multi-day hiking journey true to the statement “off the Beaten Track”.

The Ruby Range, situated just outside of Kluane National Park, offers some of the finest alpine hiking in the Yukon. This trip combines easy to moderate hiking, a high potential for wildlife encounters, great camp sites and splendid vistas into the high and snow-covered peaks of the St. Elias Mountains. Access to this area is only by floatplane or helicopter, this makes this a true remote hiking destination!
