Nááts'ihch'oh National Park Reserve is named after Nááts'ihch'oh the mountain – a powerful place for the people of the Sahtu. Near the Yukon-Northwest Territories border, the park is in the traditional lands of the Shúhtaot'ine (Mountain Dene), and home to grizzly bear, Dall’s sheep, mountain goats, and woodland caribou.

Canotage
Canoeing

This 21-day, 600-kilometre paddling expedition takes rafters, kayakers and canoeists down the entire South Nahanni River, with plenty of whitewater and wildlife along the way.  The trip is for experienced paddlers only; in fact, only a handful of groups tackle the run each year. Guided tours are available from multiple outfitters.

Hiking

As one of Canada’s newest national parks, Nááts’ihch’oh has no blazed trails. For experienced hikers, this means a rare opportunity to explore remote terrain and map routes that may one day become part of the park’s established trail network.
