The Cirque of the Unclimbables’ granite spires rise out of the lush alpine meadow, at Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls) the South Nahanni River surges over a drop twice the height of Niagara Falls. Nahanni National Park Reserve, encompassing 30,000 square kilometers, is a designated UNESCO world heritage site. The Dehcho First Nations welcome adventurers to Nahʔą Dehé, land of peaks, plateaus and wild rivers.
Guided River Outfitting
The Guidelines for Licensing Guided River Outfitting in Nahanni and Nááts’įhch’oh National Park Reserves (the Guidelines) is the first comprehensive policy for Parks Canada in both park reserves. The Guidelines establish principles for Parks Canada to follow in managing licences for guided river outfitting in Nahanni and Nááts’įhch’oh National Park Reserves. In addition to meeting Parks Canada’s mandate, Parks Canada will honour the strong connections that river trips forge between visitors, the Dehcho and Sahtu peoples, and these park reserves.
