We are pleased to provide you with a one stop outfitting service from both Fort Simpson and Lindberg Landing on the Liard River. The majority of river travelers complete their Nahanni trip at Blackstone Territorial Park conveniently located within a few kilometers of the Nahanni River Outfitting Centre on the Liard Trail. The Liard Trail is paved to the community of Fort Liard and both Fort Liard and Fort Simpson have reliable services. Each season an increasing number of Nahanni paddlers are discovering the benefit of our location. 

I would like to thank David and Wendy for all your efforts on helping us realize this extraordinary adventure. Every member of our group truly enjoyed it because of your well maintained equipment and organized transportation. I would highly recommend Nahanni Wild to anyone who would like to explore this magnificent river.

The South Nahanni River is Canada’s most celebrated wilderness river, featured in more films and books than perhaps any other river. Remotely located in the mountains east of the Yukon/NWT border, the Nahanni is accessible only by air. Approximately 600 people per year run the Nahanni and about half of these organize their own adventure. Nahanni Wild has been pleased to serve many of these groups each year with our comprehensive, self-guided, one-stop supply of river outfitting equipment and logistical services. The Nahanni River Outfitting Centre services groups departing from Fort Simpson or Lindberg Landing. We invite you to use the following information when organizing your own self-guided canoe or raft trip. We are on location all season and are able to offer you personalized assistance.

Continuing for 2020

We are pleased to offer an in-depth one hour phone or web-based consultation for your group.  With 30+ years of outfitting experience in all areas of the Nahanni, this will ensure your trip is memorable and successful. We charge $100 for this service. 


The Nahanni River is located within Nahanni National Park Reserve. Part of your trip preparation will involve registering with the park office and obtaining a Virginia Falls arrival date. Once your arrival date has been established, you will then be able to schedule your start and finish dates and build your self-guided package. Please use the following contact information to make these arrangements.

Low Impact Camping: Please note that fire boxes are now required for open fires in NNP-R. A fire box is a collapsible metal box with a grate on top that all fits into a compact case. A fire in this little invention is superior for cooking and requires a fraction of the wood. In environmental terms, a fire box used on sand or stones prevents a fire scar from being formed. The draft created by the box will burn your wood to a fine ash that can then be diluted in the river. Nahanni Wild is pleased to provide a firebox free of charge to self-guided groups- contact us for details.
