Kathleen lake, Yukon Canada

While, admittedly, you might not find yourself swimming up in the Yukon, we can’t let our list go by without acknowledging the majestic coastlines that exist in our northern regions. Also called Mät’àtäna Män, meaning “Something frozen inside the lake” or “lake captured inside” in Southern Tutchone, Kathleen Lake is located within Kluane National Park and Park Reserve and boasts an impressive shoreline, with crystal clear waters and the Kluane Mountain Range springing up around it. You may not get your soak on, but the views are well worth the trip.
