Service Description

Departing Fort Simpson at approximately 9am, expect to be gone for about 8 hours. First stop is Little Doctor Lake, nestled in the Nahanni Range where we spend about 40 minutes on one of its many sandy beaches. After jumping back in the floatplane, we soar over the spectacular Ram Plateau and Ram Canyon leading us deep into the Nahanni where we find the awe inspiring Glacier Lake that overlooks the Cirque of the Unclimbables. We spend about 40 minutes here, filling our water bottles in the mountain fed stream and taking in the view. Then we follow the South Nahanni River downstream past the Rabbit Kettle Tufa Mounds landing at the spectacular Virginia Falls. We spend about 2 hours on the ground with a guided hike to either the top or bottom of the waterfall. From here we follow the canyons down-river just as the paddlers do taking us back out of the Nahanni country touching back down on the Mackenzie River in Fort Simpson.
