Náįlįcho Flight Seeing Tour

OFFER DATE: June 15 – September 15, 2024

Embark on a thrilling flightseeing tour aboard our Cessna 185 or DeHavilland Beaver on floats, departing from Fort Simpson for a day of discovery in Nahanni National Park Reserve. As the engine purrs to life and the aircraft gracefully lifts off the water, excitement fills the air.

Flying over vast expanses of untouched wilderness, your pilot provides captivating commentary, sharing the region’s history and natural wonders. Within the hour, the iconic Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls) comes into view, its thunderous cascade a testament to nature’s power. Circling above, you’re treated to unparalleled views of the falls, capturing photos to cherish forever before landing for a guided hike with Parks Canada staff.

After your visit to Náįlįcho, the return trip has you touching down on the tranquil waters of Little Doctor Lake, you have the chance to explore the pristine shoreline, encountering wildlife and savoring a snack amidst breathtaking scenery.

As the day unfolds, you’re immersed in the rugged beauty of Nahanni, from towering peaks to hidden valleys. Each moment is a reminder of the park’s untamed splendor and the privilege of experiencing it from above.

Reluctantly, you bid farewell to Nahanni, the memories of your aerial adventure etched in your mind. As the floatplane gently touches down back in Fort Simpson, you disembark with a sense of fulfillment, grateful for the opportunity to explore the wilderness from the skies.
