Overview

The three-week Nahanni "Whitewater" trip is the ultimate whitewater canoe expedition for the intermediate to advanced whitewater paddler. The route follows the entire river from the headwaters to the mouth at the confluence with the Liard River. The Nahanni River's source is the Moose Ponds - high alpine lakes surrounded by the lofty peaks of the Mackenzie Mountains.
The creek that drains the Moose Ponds explodes into one of the finest stretches of whitewater anywhere for loaded tripping canoes. We'll spend our first week paddling the Rock Gardens - a stretch of 90 kilometers where the river drops over 650 metres. There is almost continual whitewater (Class 1 to 3+), with some noteworthy rapids such as Initiation, Eye of the Needle, and Hollywood to challenge the experienced canoeist. The adrenalin of the Rock Gardens is addictive and adds to the excitement of exploring this remote part of the Nahanni. The river calms near the confluence with the Little Nahanni River. We continue downstream and spend two weeks paddling the canyons of Nahanni National Park. This part of the trip is highlighted by fun Class I and 2 whitewater, spectacular canyons, interesting day hikes up tributary canyons, and exploring Virginia Falls.

It was a great trip. The whitewater was exhilarating. I really enjoyed being away in the north for an extended period of time.
