Mount Ulysses, is the highest mountain in the Muskwa Ranges of the Northern Canadian Rockies in British Columbia. It and neighbouring peaks are part of a group of names drawing on the epic poem The Odyssey, in which here Ulysses wanders for 10 years before being able to return home to Ithaca.[2]

Located north of the headwaters of the Akie River and to the south of Sikanni Chief Lake,[2] its very high prominence of 2289m is relative to Grand Pacific Pass, with its parent peak being an unnamed summit in the Fairweather Range, near Mount Fairweather.[1]
