Available Starting June 28, 2019

The Nahanni River is one of the world’s great wilderness destinations. It is the experience of a lifetime to explore this remote, pristine alpine river valley. You will discover a mountainous wonderland with breathtaking canyons, a magnificent waterfall, diverse wildlife, and exciting paddling on this fast flowing river. The trip is highlighted by fun class I and II whitewater, interesting day hikes up tributary canyons, wildlife viewing and exploring Virginia Falls
(also known as Nailicho). The Nahanni Classic trip is suitable for paddlers with some previous canoe camping and whitewater experience but advanced whitewater skills are not required.
