Member Nahanni Heli Adventures

We cover your every helicopter need in and around South Nahanni National Park in the Mackenzie Mountains of Canada’s NWT. Nahanni Heli Adventures gives you access to the Cirque of Unclimbables, Mt. Nirvana, Glacier Lake, Avalanche Lake and anywhere you wish to go heli hiking, heli biking, backpacking, camping or mountain climbing.

Nahanni Heli Adventures holds the only backcountry landing and guiding license for the entire South Nahanni National Park. This enables us to get researchers and outdoor enthusiasts into the most remote places for wilderness climbing, hiking, backpacking and mountain biking. Places far beyond Viriginia Falls, where the mainstream park visitor cannot reach.

Our helicopter base is located just outside the South Nahanni National Park boundaries, on the Root River, in the heart of the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories of Canada. From here we are a gateway to the Nahanni, to the remote wilderness of the Ram Plateau, Grizzly Bear Lake, Shelf Lake, Rabbitkettle Lake and its Tufa Mounds, as well as Vampire Peaks, the glaciers and ice shelf of the Ragged Range, Lotus Tower and Fairy Meadows, Tungsten, Scimitar Canyon, the Thundercloud, Broken Skull, Ravensthroat and Nahanni Rivers. We are a family owned, private business specializing in any logistical support for the adventurer and the business entrepreneur alike.

Heli Hiking

The greater South Nahanni area in the Mackenzie Mountains of Canada’s Northwest Territories is so utterly remote that it can only truly be accessed by helicopter. No plane, no hardcore backpacker, no canoe can take you where our helicopter can drop you off. There is no other option for the hiker who wishes to see the inaccessible wilderness of the high country than by getting there like a bird on the wing. The helicopter will lift you comfortably and safely, easily leapfrogging mountain ranges, and will take you to the most breathtaking, amazing and utterly pristine places of an entirely wild, silent, empty land.

Be the soaring eagle over mountain tops, perch wherever freedom takes you, feel the thrill of wild places no other human has ever been to.

Heli biking

Crazy about mountain heli biking? Want to do it in a place nobody else has been to? This one's for you.

Perfect gravel, perfect slopes, adrenaline inducing runs and the entire Mackenzie Mountains to yourself is what sums up this heli biking opportunity. The helicopter will lift you from our base camp to ever new slopes in the general vicinity. This is wild country, untracked, unmarked, unknown. Every run will be a first in a one of a kind wilderness.
