Canada Travel Guide - Yukon
Accessible only by aircraft or by canoe down the Porcupine River to its confluence with the Crow River, Old Crow is isolated from the surrounding communities in the northern reaches of the Yukon Territory. It is an excellent location for viewing the Aurora Borealis. Located on the migration path of the Porcupine Caribou herd, it is the traditional and close-knit Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation territory. Caribou continues to be important as their primary food source. Local residents are now offering wild life viewing tours. Canada’s first national park established as a result of a land claim, Ivvavik National Park, protects part of the Porcupine caribou calving grounds. Day trips to the Babbage River and multi-day trips on the Firth River are possibilities. There are no facilities or services in the park and prior registration is required.
