With six stunning canyons, the Mountain River is considered the most coveted whitewater canoe trip in Canada by seasoned river-guides. Its remote setting and big, fun whitewater with jaw-dropping mountain scenery will thrill you right to the confluence with the Mackenzie River.

 

We can provide transportation up the Mackenzie River, Great Bear Lake, Great Bear River, Brackett River, Kelly Lake, and the Keele River to get on the water with these fun additions!

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.
