Floating the foremost waters
From mild to wild, the Northwest Territories has every kind of freshwater adventure you can imagine. Challenge the scenic South Nahanni, the Mountain or the Natla-Keele rivers. Experience the rugged Barrenlands along the Coppermine or the Thelon, where wildlife crowds the riverbanks. If your aim is whitewater take up the kayaking challenge on the Slave River near Fort Smith. The fun begins with the tough Class IV Cassette Rapids, home of a summer celebration called Paddlefest.
