“a natural and historic legacy”
Tombstone Territorial Park's 2,200 km2 protect a unique wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife, all reflected in a rich First Nations culture. The park is a legacy of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in land claim agreement and lies within their traditional territory. The Dempster Highway bisects the park and provides an opportunity to view stunning arctic tundra landscapes and wildlife, and access to hiking areas. The concentration of wide ecological niches has resulted in a diverse collection of flora and fauna uncommon at this latitude. Getting there Start your visit at the Tombstone Interpretive Centre, km 71.5 Dempster Highway. Expect to drive 1.5 hours from Dawson City, Yukon, seven hours from Whitehorse and 12 hours from Inuvik, NWT. There is no cell service in the park. The nearest gas, food and lodging are in Dawson City and Eagle Plains, 369 km further north. Make sure you have plenty of gas and a couple of spare tires. Pick up a Dempster Travelogue at any Visitor Information Centre.
