About Us

About Dalton Trail Lodge

In 1987 Trix and Hardy Ruf immigrated from Switzerland to the Yukon with three young children (1, 4 and 6 years old) and a vision about a first class fishing and wilderness lodge in Kluane Country. They soon found the right spot at Dezadeash Lake and after a year of hard work, Dalton Trail Lodge was ready for its first customers.

32 years later they are still welcoming clients from all over the world. In 2013 daughter Jacky and son in law Mike became partners and a big help in running the operation. Together they offer a one of a kind experience. Fishing, Hiking, Outdoor Adventure, ATVing, Wildlife watching and Canoeing are just a few of the activities offered by Dalton Trail Lodge in and around Kluane National Park, Canada.

At the end of the last century, the great Klondike Gold Rush made the Yukon famous as the land of adventure. Our lodge is the perfect base to explore Kluane National Park. The extensive infrastructure of the lodge includes outpost cabins, jet boats, motor boats ranging from 16 feet to 24 feet, canoes, ATV's, camping gear, a tennis court and access to gold claims.







Dalton Trail Lodge is located at beautiful Dezadeash Lake, bordering Kluane National Park. Here, you can have the best of two worlds.
Follow the "call of the wild" to the heart of the Yukons pristine wilderness, enjoy luxury and first class service. Every room in our lodge has it's own private washroom. The lodge offers 2 double and 8 single rooms in the main building and an additional 10 double rooms in 4 cabins.

Dalton Trail Lodge is a very clean operation, the scenery is breathtaking and the atmosphere of the lodge is incredibly peaceful and relaxing.

Our fine international cuisine is known far beyond the territory's boundary. After your exciting day's activity you can relax by the fireplace in the library, have a drink in the lounge, play a game of pool or fussball in our games room or play a game of tennis on our court.
