Hiking in Tombstone Territorial Park

Discover endless valleys and ascend breathtaking mountains while hiking in one of the best kept secrets of the North, the Tombstone Territorial Park. Tombstone Park is a place where people can step into the natural world and experience the awesome beauty of a northern mountain wilderness. Hikers and photographers are attracted by tundra walking with dramatic views, unusual landforms and craggy peaks. Wildlife viewers are rewarded by the diversity of species including large mammals and a unique array of birds. We will spent days exploring the spectacular beauty of the majestic mountains. From the Base Camp we will hike the Mountain Ridges and Valleys to Talus Lakes, Divide Lake and Tombstone Mountain. The arctic tundra environment, which is normally found several hundred kilometres to the north, reaches its southernmost extent at the north end of the Tombstone area. The Tombstone Mountains in late August burst into colors, throwing off their hues of green and revealing their yellows, oranges and deep crimson reds. Add to this the fact that Tombstone Valley is considered by many to be the most scenic spot in all of the Yukon, and you have a recipe for amazing hiking, endless photography, and wilderness exploration. This adventure is a true wilderness backpacking experience that meets and then exceeds your expectations of the Yukon’s mountain splendor!
