Tombstone Mountains

The Tombstone Mountains present an incredible and important landscape whose granite pinnacles have been shaped by wind, water, and glaciers into hornes, aretes and sheer rock walls. Sub-arctic tundra, boreal forest and alpine tundra all interweave creating a remarkably diverse and productive eco-system. At the northern edge of the Tombstone Range is Berengia, an area that escaped the glacial scarring of the last ice age.

 

Overview

Our adventure into the Tombstone Mountains begins with a helicopter flight into the heart of the region. Our hike out will pass through an imposing landscape of hanging valleys, morraine lakes, and spectacular Tombstone vistas. After hiking our way out of the Tombstone Mountains, along GrizzlyValley, we will rendezvous with our van. We will drive on to Dawson City, restored to its glory goldrush days. We will take a tour of the goldfields, drive to the Dome and an exceptional view of Dawson and surrounding regions, and enjoy an evening of festivity at Diamond Tooth Gertie’s.
