The magical flight into Drum Lake sets the stage for this remote and seldom travelled river trip. Drum Lake boasts some of the finest trout fishing in the Northwest Territories. The Redstone offers miles of challenging whitewater for intermediate or advanced paddlers. The deep slot canyon of the lower Redstone easily rivals those of the Nahanni River. Big game sightings are almost a certainty due to the remote location of this river.
The Redstone River is unique in that it flows through an ancient non-glaciated wilderness corridor known as Beringia ,the pathway from Siberia to the Americas that allowed for the migration of prehistoric animals and humans. Today, the Redstone is seldom travelled and our exploratory 2009 canoe expedition was the first of its kind in many years. The area is sacred to the Mountain Dene as it represents an important and historic hunting and fishing region. The towering Mackenzie Mountains are rugged and rock-faced. The whitewater is both challenging and exhilarating, the lines are tight with some rocks and ledges in play and tight corners are complicated with rising boils and lurking hydraulics!
