Growing Wild: Introducing the Tatshenshini, Alsek and Firth

This fall saw Nahanni Wild grow as the team at Nahanni River Adventures and Canadian River Expeditions joined the family. After years as friendly competitors we are so excited to bring together two incredible teams of guides and to continue our growth from two of the most experienced guides and outfitters in Canada, Neil Hartling and David Hibbard. Their decades of experience allows our guide teams to ask important questions and ensures our expeditions remain unparalleled. There is no substitute for experience!

An exciting component of this partnership is found in our increased offering of wilderness expeditions across the North! Rivers such as the Alsek, Firth and Snake will take us through some of the finest wilderness areas on the planet. Each of these journeys has been crafted through decades of experience and offers an opportunity to explore diverse and inspiring eco-systems!

The Firth is a pristine, high arctic watershed, thought to be Canada’s oldest river. With incredible geography and unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities it bisects Ivvavik National Park. It starts high in the British Mountains and is home to the threatened Porcupine Caribou herd. With endless daylight the Firth provides more hiking opportunities that any other expedition. This unique journey connects the mountain to the sea as we will set our final camp on the Arctic ocean!

The fight for the future of the Peele watershed continues, join us as we explore the incredible wilderness of the Snake River. From its start in the alpine it is home to diverse and plentiful wildlife and its clear waters flash with trout and grayling. Keystone species like grizzly bears and woodland caribou call the valley home. The Snake's Beringian landscape offers incredible hiking and a chance to celebrate a timeless northern landscape.

We look forward to sharing these incredible wild places with you in 2019 and beyond.

Yours for Adventure,

The Hibbards and the Nahanni Wild family
