The Legend of Yakatutch takes place in the Yukon’s capital city of Whitehorse (population: 25,000) and the neighboring Kluane National Park and Wildlife Reserve -- a 13,670 square-mile area that includes the largest non-polar icefield on earth and the highest mountain in Canada. Yakatutch’s cave is located within this reserve, surrounded by the Saint Elias Mountains and over 2000 valley-bound glaciers.

The snowbound landscape of the Yukon - with its mountains, forests and glaciers - is a spectacular, rarely-seen setting that will become a significant character in the film. The Southern Tutchone people and the characters living in Whitehorse are all tied to this beautiful, yet hostile environment.
