Glacier Lake Flight Seeing Tour

OFFER DATE: June 15 – September 15, 2024

Embark on a breathtaking journey through the pristine wilderness of Nahanni National Park Reserve aboard our Cessna 185 or DeHavilland Beaver on floats. Your adventure begins in Fort Simpson, where you’ll board your rugged yet comfortable aircraft, ready to explore the wonders of Canada’s Northwest Territories.

Your first stop is Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls), a majestic cascade that plunges dramatically into the depths below. As you soar overhead, marvel at the sheer power and beauty of nature, capturing unforgettable aerial views of the roaring falls and surrounding rugged terrain. We will land at the top of the falls where Parks Canada staff will be ready to take you on a interpretive guided hike.

Next stop, you’ll glide over Glacier Lake, a serene oasis nestled amidst towering peaks and ancient glaciers of the Mackenzie Mountains. From your bird’s-eye vantage point, soak in the tranquil blue waters and granite spires, feeling a profound sense of awe at the raw, untouched beauty of this remote wilderness.

Last stop on the return flight to Fort Simpson will have you touching down on the tranquil waters of Little Doctor Lake, you’ll have the opportunity to step ashore and take a leisurely stroll along the shoreline, breathe in the crisp mountain air, and perhaps even dip your toes in the lake.

After a day filled with exploration and wonder, your pilot will guide you back to Fort Simpson, where you’ll reflect on the memories made during your 8-9 hour flightseeing adventure. Whether you’re captivated by the thundering power of Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls), enchanted by the pristine wilderness of Glacier Lake, or rejuvenated by the serenity of Little Doctor Lake, this unforgettable journey promises to leave you with a deep appreciation for the natural wonders of Nahanni National Park Reserve and the Northwest Territories.
