For a breathtaking, off-the-grid experience, head to the Northwest Territories to Nahanni National Park. Located between Yellowknife and Whitehorse, YT, the park contains 30,050 km² of isolated peaks, meadows, as well as raging rivers.
Outdoor enthusiasts come to this rugged land for inspiration and connection to its people. If you’re looking for a true Canadian wilderness experience, look no further.
What to see
Get inspired for the epic trek with a sneak peek at a handful of amazing lookouts, captured in a special project by Google Street View. Then get ready to set your eyes on sights that few have seen before:
Hot springs and history
The sacred Rabbitkettle Hot Springs boast Canada’s largest tufa formations. Visit the springs and join park staff on a guided tour –because your to-do list should include learning about the history of these ancient aboriginal lands and snapping photos of Instagram-worthy rock formations.
Rivers and waterfalls
Virginia Falls towers 96 m high, making it twice the size of Niagara Falls (say what?). But unlike the popular Ontario photo-op, you’ll likely be the only spectator at this impressive and secluded wonder.
Mountains and meadows
Home to the highest peaks in the Northwest Territories, Nahanni is definitely a climber’s nirvana. But Fairy Meadows and Tł’ogotsho Plateau offer diverse landscapes to delight any adventurer craving a rarely-seen, isolated experience. Also, you’re guaranteed to see some amazing Canadian animals in their natural habitat.
How to see it
There are no public roads in Nahanni National Park Reserve, which means you can’t bring your RV all the way there. But you can drive to Fort Simpson, NWT and take a float plane. Visitors must access the park via air, hike in, or take an adventurous paddle down the river. Click here to get more details on how to get there.
