About Black Feather
For over 40 years, Black Feather adventurers have paddled wilderness rivers, hiked remote landscapes and sea kayaked along pristine coastlines and through sparkling fjords.
We explore the most outstanding northern destinations, from the world famous Nahanni River, to a remote fjord in Greenland, to Ellesmere’s Muskox Way, just 500 miles from the North Pole.
Highly experienced and scrupulously trained guides bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to each trip. Top quality expedition gear is field-tested and even custom designed for our rigorous standards. Our meals are delicious … we wrote the book on wilderness cuisine “Camp Cooking – the Black Feather Cookbook”.
Join us for your adventure of a Lifetime.
