Summer Family GetawayNamushkaLodge Mon, 12/28/2020 - 09:34

Summer package includes return flight from Yellowknife to Namushka Lodge.

It's a time of anxiety, of heightened precaution, of unprecedented interruption to the rhythms of daily life. But this crisis is allowing people to savor the best of the Northwest Territories. Being outside in all sorts of weather and at all times of the year is part of the Northern way of life. With solitary walks, nature hikes and trips to the cabin, Northerners are finding comfort in wide open spaces, recharging and de-stressing in the great outdoors...

On our tour we’ll be paddling the upper part of the Thelon River, the largest river in the Barren Lands and easily the most magnificent. The Thelon is, without question, the most remote and the most pristine wilderness river of any considerable size left in North America. There are eight rapids along our route but no portages at all. Our entire route is on the tundra, south of the Thelon Wildlife Sanctuary, and is one of the most remote places left in the world.

Our guided Eileen River/Sled Creek canoe adventure offers exclusive access to one of the best wilderness wildlife trips in the Northwest Territories!

This is our top trip for spectacular campsites and world-class hiking opportunities in a very remote tundra wilderness. Our canoe trip lies a short distance past the treeline (edge of the forest) in the Barren Lands, west of the Thelon River headwaters.
