TOUR DETAILS

Your bushpilot Urs has been flying guests into the Nahanni for over 35 years. His well maintained fleet of modern turbine powered float planes seat 6 and 9 passengers. Urs' vast experience in flying float planes to Nahanni and into the Northern Rocky Mountains gives you an opportunity to experience the Nahanni with a pilot who has flown thousands of hours in the vast wilderness of Northern Canada.

SEE THE NAHANNI

Fly out in our aircraft docked on beautiful Muncho Lake, British Columbia at Northern Rockies Lodge, located conveniently on the Alaska Highway. Our northbound, 1.5 hour flight follows the famous Alaska Highway over BC’s remote northern Rockies before crossing the mighty Liard River. Witness the vastness of the southeastern Yukon and the rugged Mackenzie Mountains as we enter Canada’s Northwest Territories. We follow the Caribou Range, cross the Flat River near Albert Faille’s trap line cabin before reaching the south Nahanni River. We enjoy a leisurely stroll along the well maintained boardwalk to the upper viewpoint. Frequently a Parks Canada interpreter is on hand to provide information on the Nahanni, the native history, early explorers, and plant life. The backdrop is unbeatable as you enjoy a picnic lunch, provided by us. Enjoy spectacular views and hear the thundering roar of Canada's tallest waterfall.
