Member Canoe North

Canoe North, located in Hay River, Northwest Territories offers kayak and canoe rentals and sales. We can set you up for a self guided trip on a number of northern rivers and the Great Slave Lake. We are just 40km from the source of the Mackenzie River, the ultimate paddling experience. You can also choose from several other shorter, but equally beautiful trips around the Hay River area. Canoe North has been in operation for 7 years and is ready to help you with all of your canoe and kayak needs!
