The Nahanni River is truly a Canadian Icon, and the crown jewel of river trips in the NWT. Made famous to the outside world by RM Patterson's book "Dangerous River" published in 1957, the river's true history is one that is intertwined with the Mountain Dene People of the Dehcho Region of the NWT, who have lived here for thousands of years. 

On this 4-day adventure, view the breathtaking scenery of the north on a

600 km road trip from Yellowknife to the small Indigenous village of Jean Marie River! Next morning, paddle on the Mackenzie River from Jean Marie River to Fort Simpson, camping one night on the river. On the following day, we arrive at Fort Simpson and spend the evening exploring this picturesque Mackenzie River community! Next day, we drive back to Yellowknife, getting you back home that very evening.

 

Make it a 5-Day Dehcho adventure and fly into the world famous Nahanni National Park!

National Indigenous Peoples Day, formerly known as Aboriginal Day, is celebrated every June 21st all across Canada. In the Northwest Territories, it's a statutory holiday. In every community in the territory, you'll find festivities that include cultural demonstrations, live music, artwork and traditional food, all to honour and recognize the Métis, Inuit and First Nations people who've made the North their home for centuries.
