The Mountain River in the NWT is the 'best wilderness river' in Canada, according to the guides from leading adventure company 'Blackfeather'. Wendy Grater, owner of Blackfeather, expertly takes us 370km down this wild, whitewater river which is visited by less than 150 canoeists every year.
This really is a dream trip as we spend 2 weeks paddling from the source of the river high in the breathtaking Mackenzie mountains right to where the river feeds into the MacKenzie. The river drops 1,200metres with a constant fast flow. Five beautiful canyons provide challenging and exciting rapids, & cause a few canoes to flip over.
Mountain hikes, herds of caribou and natural springs are highlights of the trip in this amazing wilderness.
