Paddling in the wake of the voyageurs
Just a few generations ago, the lakes and rivers of the Northwest Territories were highways for the Voyaguers – for the brave fur-traders, often Métis, who gathered the beaver pelts of the Northwest frontier.
On sunny summer nights in Yellowknife, you can get a taste of what this life was like.
Narwal Northern Adventures takes visitors out on the waters in Yellowknife's Old Town and takes them back in time. Relive the Voyaguer experience, travelling in the grand canoes of the coureurs des bois, hearing their songs, sampling their foods and learning their stories.
