Tombstone Territorial Park

If you’re the sort that’s drawn to the Yukon to rediscover what the world was like before civilization “improved” everything, Tombstone Territorial Park is for you.

The Land Before Time

Physically, the park is just north of Dawson City, easily accessed by the Dempster Highway. But to enter the “Patagonia of the North” is to return to the time when the only people here were the First Nations: the Tr'ondek Hwech'in, Na Cho Nyak Dun, Gwich'in First Nations, and the Inuvialuit people. Everything else was wildlife: Caribou. Moose. Dall sheep. Bears. Wolves. And the beautiful gyrfalcon.

This is the land where craggy, black granite pinnacles point to the sun. Where hidden valleys are settings for crystalline lakes. Where every summer the tundra explodes in a crazy carpet of colours that delight the eye and confound the camera. And where the only forces that have truly touched the landscape are wind, water, and glaciers—except in the northern Beringia areas where the glaciers did not form, and where mammoths, steppe bison, scimitar cats and other giants of the ice age roamed.

The unique landforms, life, and heritage found in this 2,100 km2 are now protected for all time. So how would you like to explore them?
