A Nahanni River rafting or canoeing experience is truly the “trip of a lifetime.” For those with limited vacation time, this adventure allows you to experience the best of the Nahanni’s “Grand Canyons,” Virginia Falls and many of the iconic features for which the Nahanni River is renowned.
We follow a 7-day route, travelling over 240 kilometres (150 miles) from Virginia Falls to Nahanni Butte. Over this course, the Nahanni River drops 396 metres (1300 feet), or almost 9 feet per mile.
On our Nahanni rafting and canoeing trips, we use rafts as well as two-person canoes on selected departure dates. Our Nahanni rafting expeditions are designed for people of any skill level, including novices. Some Nahanni raft trips offer canoeing as an option. In this case, canoeing prerequisites apply.
Upon booking, we’ll need to know which craft you prefer (raft or two-person canoe) on your application form. Numbers will indicate how thoroughly we’ll be able to match preferences for craft. Please call us with any questions: 1-800-297-6927.
