Nááts'ihch'oh is a brand new national park, and we are still scouting hiking routes.

For off-trail adventurers, floatplanes can land at Grizzly Bear, Divide Lake, Margaret Lake, and Moose Ponds to give you access to the mountains. Contact us and an air charter service to help plan your trek. If you do go, we’d love to read your trip report. Your trek might become the next established route.

Hop on a floatplane for a Mackenzie Mountains adventure. Take a tour to Moose Ponds, and picnic below Nááts'ihch'oh, the mountain. Bring an Aboriginal guide from Tulita or Norman Wells and immerse yourself in the Shútagot'ine (Mountain Dene) culture.

To plan your trip, please contact a charter airline.
