Crafted for those who are looking for a shorter holiday or who have already paddled the South Nahanni River, our 12 day Broken Skull adventure allows paddlers the full Broken Skull experience with a fly out option at Rabbitkettle Lake. This trip maximizes time spent in the high alpine that makes the Broken Skull a 'must do' northern river.  

This unique and remote tributary of the Nahanni starts high in the mountains of one of Canada's newest National Parks, Nááts'ihch'oh National Park Reserve.

Clear water, unforgettable views and an intimate wilderness experience, the Broken Skull offers all of this from its beginning high in the alpine to its mouth at the South Nahanni river.  Not to mention the friendly, exciting whitewater that will have you hooting and hollering from the sheer joy of corner after corner of fun!
