The Wind River, being part of the Peel River Watershed, is in the traditional territory of the Na-Cho Nyak Dun and Tetlit Gwich’in First Nations. It starts in the high elevation of the Wernecke Mountains, and braids and meanders into it's lower sections as it crosses the Peel River Plateau. The Wind River offers exciting and friendly class I-II whitewater for intermediate canoeists. With fourteen days on trip, you will have the opportunity to take a break from paddling to hike the vast and beautiful wilderness surrounding you. These easy hikes offer spectacular panoramic views in areas well-known for viewing wildlife such as Wolves, Dall's Sheep, and Woodland Caribou. If you are a bird watching enthusiast, look out for the soaring Peregrine Falcons and other birds of prey that nest along the high ridges.
