Vuntut National Park was established in 1995 after extensive negotiations through the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation’s Final Land Claims Agreement between the Vuntut Gwitchin of Old Crow and the Government of Canada and the Yukon.

Vuntut, which means “among the lakes” in the Gwitchin language, encompasses over 4,000 square kilometres¬†of wilderness in the northwestern corner of the Yukon Territory.

The park is bounded by the height of land and Ivvavik National Park of the north, the international boundary and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to the west, Black Fox Creek to its confluence with the Old Crow River to the east and the Old Crow River to the south.
