Imagine paddling the 1800km of the Mackenzie River either by Kayak or by Canoe to the Arctic ocean. This is a cultural trip as you pass through the lands of the First Nations people. The Mackenzie River passes through the Dehcho Region, by the communities of Fort Providence, Jean Marie River, Fort Simpson (the oldest fur trade settlement along the river) and Wrigley. The river continues through the Sahtu region where you will visit the communities of Tulita, Norman Wells and Fort Good Hope and then on to the communities of Tsiigehtchic, and Inuvik in the Gwich'in Region and finally through the Inuvialuit Region to the Arctic Ocean and Tuktoyaktuk.
Paddlers will require a SPOT Messenger or an InReach Messaging device to be able to rent gear for the trip.
