Horton River, NWT

Join us for an epic Arctic paddling adventure on the most northerly flowing river in mainland Canada. We'll paddle and hike through rolling tundra and if we are fortunate, we'll see caribou, musk oxen, grizzly bears and wolves. The fishing for char, lake trout and grayling is outstanding in this crystal-clear water. In the first 2 weeks we'll paddle from close to Horton Lake to the confluence on the Whaleman River (floatplane from Inuvik, fewer rapids and no portages), and the last 2 weeks we'll paddle from the Whaleman River to the Arctic Ocean (floatplane from Inuvik, canyons, whitewater and potentially 1 portage). Choose one or both trips. We'll get the chance to see the Smoking Hills near the end of the trip and take a dip in the Arctic Ocean. Prerequisite: Upper: Canoeing AB, Lower: Canoeing ABC or equivalent. Includes: guide, floatplanes from Inuvik, all canoe/group camping gear.
