Nahanni Butte

Nahanni Butte

Tthenáágó – “Strong rock”

Population: 97

Named for the stately mountain guarding over it, this quiet Dene settlement is picturesquely situated where the South Nahanni River pours into the Liard. It’s a common stop for paddlers exiting the national park, and offers awesome hiking to the top of the butte. Check out the log church and school. Access is by river taxi in summer (call ahead) or, in winter, via ice road across the Liard.
