Below is a start to our 2020 schedule. More trips will be added, contact Dave to discuss options.
Keele River, Northwest Territories
Offered through Canoe North Adventures in Norman Wells, The Keele River, an iconic Canadian wilderness canoeing experience through the majestic and stunning Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories. Although fast and boisterous, paddling is challenging but not technically difficult. The mountains are spectacular offering hiking on the easily accessible alpine slopes. This region is rich in natural beauty, big game and wildlife. The Keele is wide & deep with high standing waves and continuous swifts and rapids. There can be sightings of caribou, moose, grizzly or black bears, eagles and most surely Dahl sheep with great fishing for both arctic grayling and bull trout. We are in the mountains until the second last day, when the river slows as it reaches the Mackenzie River. The mountains fall back and there are many braids before the confluence. Red Dog Mountain is the last major land feature before the lowlands signifying the end of the Keele River at the Mackenzie River confluence.
12 days during July of 2020, more information coming soon.
