A:Call me biased—I’ve lived in the Yukon for three and a half years now–but I don’t think it gets much better than hiking in Alaska or its Canadian neighbor. Sure, there are bears and vicious flies, but there are also glaciers, mountains that haven’t been named yet, and a serious dearth of people, not to mention near-24-hour daylight. If you want solitude, this is the place for you.
That said, be prepared to be self-sufficient: As a general rule, you’ll be on your own, without cell service, ranger patrols or vehicle access if you get in a jam.
