This day-hiking trip will combine easy to moderate hiking with plenty of time for taking pictures and capturing the fall colors. This week long trip brings us up north into the alpine tundra of central Yukon close to the Arctic Circle and finishes off with a visit to the historic gold rush town of Dawson City. Off the beaten track, your guide will lead you on mountain hikes where you will enjoy great vistas with good chances to see wildlife. Our base camp will be at the Tombstone campground, in the heart of Tombstone Territorial Park. Hiking destinations will be chosen according to the weather and the group desires. We will have ample opportunity to observe nature, take pictures and enjoy spectacular scenery of the rouged mountains of the Patagonia of the north. The nights will be spent under a dark sky with great opportunities to capture millions of starts and hopefully also the northern lights. At the end of the trip we let the gold fever grab us in the stunning historic town of Dawson City.
Camping is the only option if you want to stay in Tombstone Territorial Park. Nearest community is Dawson City, about 110km away. The granite mountains of the Tombstone range guarantee for spectacular vistas. Good timing for the fall colors, the hills will likely be painted in red and yellow! It is possible to see northern lights. Changes in the itinerary due to weather and trail conditions are a possibility. You will be required to sign a release of liability and waiver of claims prior to the trip.
