A NEW LEVEL OF FANTASTIC

Lester

An amazing experience with a fantastic group of people and incredible scenery and environment. We come from New Zealand so are used to friendly people and beautiful scenery but the trip down the Alsek river with these guys and girls took these things to a new level. Camping next to glacial lakes full of icebergs was a definite highlight. And then there's the food – incredible!! Overall we highly recommend this trip as an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience.

RICH REWARDS ON THE NAHANNI

Robert and Naomi

We enjoyed 12 days of soul-enriching experience on the Nahanni River. Our family of three is grateful to our amazing, multi-talented guides -– Nils, Ian and Hans – for their precision, expertise and care. Each of these congenial and capable young men kept us active, safe, entertained and well-fed. In fact, the food they prepared was superb! The grandeur of this remote and magnificent Canadian landscape is unforgettable. We highly recommend the trip run by Nahanni River Adventures to anyone of any level of wilderness skill. You will be richly rewarded.
