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 your have a recipe for amazing hiking, endless photography and wilderness exploration.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Whitehorse, Yukon. Hopefully you enjoyed your travels and have arrived safely in Whitehorse, the Yukon’s capital city, nestled among the wilderness. Please arrive in Whitehorse in time for an orientation meeting at 8:30 pm the night before our departure. Guests are responsible for accommodation and meals while in Whitehorse. Whitehorse is a splendid little city and we recommend booking some additional time at either the beginning or the end of your trip to see Whitehorse.

Day 2: Our staff will pick you up from your hotels starting at 7:00 am. Please have your breakfast (not included) finished by this time. We will depart from Whitehorse by 8:00 am. We will drive north on the Klondike Highway for seven hours, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way. The last hour of our travels will be on the famous Dempster Highway, the northernmost highway in Canada. At this time of the year, the fall colors will be near their peak as the alpine tundra bursts into flames with vibrant red mosses and shrubs, brilliant yellow willows and orange poplars. We will arrive at the Tombstone Territorial Park Campground and visitor center where we will set our camp, explore the center, and enjoy our first campfire dinner together as a group. Includes: (L), (D).

Days 3-9: We will hike into the Tombstone Mountains back country and make a 7-day backpacking loop visiting the highlights of the range: Grizzly Lake, Divide Lake, Talus Lake, Mount Monolith and Tombstone Mountain. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 10: Today we will break camp early and meet by our staff after breakfast, traveling into the town of Dawson City for a picnic lunch, showers, and a chance to look around before departing for a 6-hour trip home to Whitehorse and your accommodation. Clients have the option of being left in Dawson City to continue their Yukon exploration from there. Dinner and hotel not included. Includes: (B), (L).
