What is there to do?

Nahanni National Park Reserve of Canada protects a portion of the Mackenzie Mountains Natural Region offering the adventurous visitor a wilderness experience. A key feature of the park is the Naha Dehé (South Nahanni River).

Four great canyons line this spectacular whitewater river. At Nailicho (Virginia Falls) the river plunges in a thunderous plume. The park's sulphur hotsprings, alpine tundra, mountain ranges, and forests of spruce and aspen are home to many species of birds, fish and mammals. A visitor centre in Fort Simpson features displays on the history, culture and geography of the area. The park was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1978.

The park covers a huge 30,000 square kilometers and is full of peaks, plateaus and wild rivers to explore and enjoy. 

The park is the ultimate paradise for adventurers, where you can trek with a compass in hand and explore the meadows and reserves for the curious minds. Go on a mountain experience and climb to the peak, or head out on a river trip and spot soe wildlife, there's so much to see and do.
