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.

Located north of the headwaters of the Akie River and to the south of Sikanni Chief Lake, its very high prominence of 2,289 m (7,510 ft) is relative to Grand Pacific Pass, with its parent peak being an unnamed summit in the Fairweather Range, near Mount Fairweather.

It was first climbed in 1961.
