This day-hiking trip will combine easy to moderate hiking with plenty of time for taking pictures and taking in the fall colors. This week-long trip brings us up north into the alpine tundra of central Yukon close to the Arctic Circle and finishes off with a visit to the historic gold rush town of Dawson City.
Off the beaten track, your guide will lead you on mountain hikes where you will enjoy great vistas with good chances to see wildlife. Our base camp will be at the Tombstone campground, in the heart of Tombstone Territorial Park. Hiking destinations will be chosen according to the weather and the hiking experience of the group.
We will have ample opportunity to observe nature, take pictures and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the rouged mountains of the Patagonia of the north. The nights will be spent under a dark sky with great opportunities to capture millions of starts and hopefully also the northern lights. At the end of the trip, we let the gold fever grab us in the stunning historic town of Dawson City.
