THE TOMBSTONE MOUNTAIN HIKING

The Tombstone Territorial Park is located in central Yukon, north of the historical city Dawson. In this park –considered as the most beautiful in central Yukon- you will be surrounded by arctic tundra and not by boreal forest. There is only a few maps describing this region and each trek represents a real exploration.

Fauna and flora are diversified there because of the geological quality and the proximity of the Arctic Circle. Arctic tundra, located hundreds kilometers north, is also present in the alpine zone, and is very similar to the one in High Arctic: hills, plateaus and mountains are covered with tundra and shrubs.

THE SPIRIT OF THIS TRIP

The Tombstone Territorial Park is a place where you will be in total autonomy and where you will discover wildlife. There is no map for this place and each tour is a discovery. This huge park stretches towards arctic lands and ends up at Alaska’s frontier. Only a few persons completely crossed this park since there is nothing at the end, just you, the wind and the complete silence. This is an exceptional trip, unique in France.
