Canoe Canada’s deepest river canyons, camp at Virginai Falls (nearly twice the height of Niagara), soak in hotsprings and explore the very first UNESCO World Heritage Site Nahanni National Park Reserve, one of the largest parks in the world.
This is a must-do trip for avid canoeists who also enjoy hiking, wildlife, wildflowers, geology and history.
If you’re a whitewater canoeist, you already know the Nahanni River in Canada’s Northwest Territories is a mecca for serious canoe trippers. For many of those who love this adventure sport, a canoeing expedition on the Nahanni is a once in a lifetime “pilgrimage.” Covering the entire length of the original Nahanni National Park, from Rabbitkettle Lake to the confluence with the Liard River, this canoeing adventure is considered a classic for the adventurous paddler.
We travel on the Nahanni River from Rabbitkettle Hot Springs to Lindberg’s Landing over approximately 370 kilometres (230 miles) with an elevation drop of 550 metres (1800 feet).
