Activities

Visit our Indigenous communities, meet with community leaders, respected Elders, Knowledge Keepers and residents in our communities and hear their stories. Learn about life in the old days and how we are trying to maintain this way life in the new modern world.

Travel on the mighty Mackenzie River or as we call it in our Dene language, the “deh cho” and visit a traditional culture camp where you will learn about our special relationship with the land.

The Mountain River is our "Guides' Choice" as the best wilderness canoeing river in Canada. Awesome alpine scenery bathed in constantly-changing colours, dramatic canyons, exciting Class 1 to 3 whitewater, and non-stop current - all in a pristine wilderness setting - make this trip a "must" for experienced paddlers. There are exceptional side hikes to mineral springs and tufa formations, alpine ridges, and mountain lookouts. Dall sheep, caribou, wolves, and bears live along the river.
