Explore Remote Valleys A hiking holiday in Tombstone Territorial Park, Yukon
Discover endless valleys and ascend breathtaking mountains while hiking and camping in Tombstone Territorial Park in Canada's Yukon Territory. Tombstone Park is a place of awesome beauty and northern mountain wilderness. Hikers and photographers are attracted by tundra walking with dramatic views, unusual landforms and craggy peaks.
You will be rewarded by the diversity of species including large mammals such as moose and caribou, and a unique array of birds. Tombstone's unique collection of vegetation and wildlife is linked to the special geology and geography of the region. The diversity of rocks and minerals in the area has created a variety of soils which support a wide range of plant communities which, in turn, provide habitat for many animal species. The elevation and shape of the land funnels cold Arctic air through the broad valleys, influencing the plants as well as the permafrost landforms.
