Interactions with bears are a proper concern when some is considering a journey into our backcountry. Knowing what situations might arise, how to deal with them and prevent a negative outcome is worth putting some thought into. Nahanni Wild has been working and traveling through wilderness for decades and we are happy to share some of the theory and techniques that we employ on our expeditions
Suddenly awoken by the sunlight streaming through the small window of the plane I find myself struggling to put the pieces together.
Last night’s mad dash to pack up a week's worth of foul weather gear and accompanying surf equipment didn’t begin until the latest round of advertisements had been submitted to various magazines. Its pre-Christmas chaos in every office and I was behind schedule. Thankfully getting outside is a team sport at our house and with the (patient) help of my wife everything was packed properly and a ride given to the airport.
2016 will go down as our most successful season yet with amazing trips on the Nahanni, Keele and Mountain Rivers. With great water levels on our Nahanni River headwaters expedition, exciting wildlife encounters and our first all women’s trip under our belts we couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds.
Summer 2016 found me with a little time to explore lesser known regions of the Nahanni River and Nahanni National Park Reserve...
In the 28 years since David began guiding on the Nahanni River much has changed. Boat construction (Grumman Canoes anyone?), safety equipment and techniques and even the menu available to expedition participants have changed. However, our love for the wilderness has only grown and our passion for sharing it with you has only deepened...
First season trips are coming off the water!
Paddle the Keele River with us this summer. Join our woman's trip from July 15- July 28.
The Nahanni Wilderness Adventures Guide Team annual spring training! Let the Nahanni's most experienced guide team look after you this summer.
One of Canada's most spectacular wilderness rivers, the Mountain River is traveled by fewer than 150 canoeists each year.
The days are getting longer, the sun's rays are getting warmer, and we know paddling season will soon be here. Many people are beginning to plan their summer holidays so we kick off this issue with an invitation to meet with us at the Adventure Travel Shows. As always- drop us a line- we love keeping in touch.
