Floating the Foremost Waters

Take your choice of vacation highs in the Northwest Territories. There are packages that suit all tastes and abilities, from relaxed to high octane. Challenge a wild Northern river that few have ever travelled. Check out the territory's spectacular parks and campgrounds. Spot geese and ducks by the thousands, nesting on tundra lakes. Go face to face with muskoxen. Hike the gruelling Canol Trail, or backpack in the Mackenzie Mountains. Then relax with a round of golf at a community course.

Novice paddlers will enjoy putting a canoe into any number of North Slave shield lakes and more experienced paddlers may come up here to cross rivers like Nahanni, Broken Skull, Mountain, Thomsen, Mackenzie, Yellowknife, Coppermine, Thelon, and Hornaday off their bucketlists.
