North Nahanni Naturalist Lodge


Jet Boating: One of the many activities at North Nahanni Naturalist Lodge

North Nahanni Naturalist Lodge

Guest of North Nahanni Naturalist Lodge can participate in a variety of activities that provide a first-class wilderness experience. But first our guests have to get to the lodge. Many opt to travel by safe and comfortable jet boat. The jet boat trip offers spectacular scenery, with stops along the way for photo opportunities and as little or as much hiking as you desire.

Take advantage of canoeing, fishing and even swimming in the sparkling clear waters of Cli Lake. The lodge also offers superb wildlife viewing and bird watching opportunities. With advance notice, a Dene Elder can provide your group with an introduction to the Dene culture, or a Dene crafts workshop can be arranged for your children. Guests who prefer to just put their feet up and unwind can curl up on the couch next to the lodge wood stove with a book from our library.

Guests can hike with one of our guides. There are easy, partially groomed trails leading to vantage points that offer magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. The lodge sauna and hot tub offer welcome relaxation at the end of an active day.

North Nahanni Naturalist Lodge also packages adventures in the surrounding area. We can arrange for flightseeing trips to Nahanni National Park Reserve, with stopovers at Virginia Falls or Glacier Lake, combined with a lodge visit. For more adventurous souls, guided heli-hiking and photography trips can be arranged for the Nahanni Karst area, or the Ram Plateau - two examples of world class scenery right on our doorstep.

If you don't see an activity or a package that suits your preferences, please give us a call or send us an e-mail. We enjoy developing custom trips for our guests and we strive to make every guest’s experience a truly memorable one.
