For those looking for an extended intermediate paddling experience, look no further. Starting high in the Mackenzie Mountains at Ǫtaa Tué Fehto (Divide Lake), the Pı̨́ı̨́p’enéh łéetǫ́ǫ́ Deé (Broken Skull River) boasts 150km of excellent Class I-III whitewater, pristine hot-springs, great hiking, and true untravelled wilderness. We will spend approximately one week descending this section, followed by two weeks on the fabled Tehjeh Deé (the South Nahanni River) where we will experience the highlights of Nahanni National Park Reserve including Gahnįhthah Mįe (Rabbitkettle Lake) and Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls).

This trip is suitable for paddlers with previous canoe-camping and whitewater canoeing experience.
