Nahanni Classic

The ‘Classic’ is a two week canoeing trip and the perfect opportunity to paddle the whole of Nahanni National Park. We start at Rabbitkettle Lake, the northern boundary of the park. You will see the rare Tufa Mounds - the largest ‘warmspring’ tufa formation in the north.

Awe- inspiring Virginia Falls pours over a cataract twice the height of Niagara. We paddle through four canyons that are in places deeper than the Grand Canyon. The route is suitable for any paddler with basic whitewater skills.

The trip starts with 3 days of paddling in current, where we can hone our skills before we challenge the canyons below Virginia Falls. Here we paddle some class I and II rapids with expert coaching from the guides.

Each night we camp by the river’s edge and share an evening campfire with our companions watching the midnight sun play on the canyon walls. There is time for off river hikes up tributary canyons or to breathtaking lookouts.

The Nahanni Classic is a dream trip of a lifetime, offering spectacular scenery, great paddling and warm camaraderie in one of Canada’s best wilderness areas.
