 Nahanni Country Region of Northwest Territories, Canada   
  Live the legend of Nahanni

The name Nahanni conjures legends of lost gold, and of a magnificent, remote waterfall that’s twice as high as Niagara.

Nahanni National Park Reserve is one of Canada’s greatest treasures, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But Nahanni Country also includes the rivers, towns and villages nestling in the foothills of the Nahanni Range of mountains, in the southwest corner of the Northwest Territories. Airlines and outfitters in the town of Fort Simpson provide access and interpretation for the Park.

Nahanni is centred on one of the deepest river-canyon systems in the world, looming above the turbulent South Nahanni River. This superb canoeing river can only be reached by air. Choose a flightseeing tour, or a fully outfitted canoe or rafting trip starting high in the mountains. Stand in the thunder of towering Virginia Falls. Eerie place-names — Headless Valley, Funeral Range, the Cirque of the Unclimbables — add to the excitement and the mystery.
