Canoe North Adventures Mountain River, Northwest Teritories

Suggested Retail:
With six canyons, the Mountain is considered the most coveted whitewater canoe trip in Canada by our seasoned river guides. Its remote setting with jaw-dropping mountain scenery will thrill you right to the confluence with the Mackenzie River. The canyons are defined by vaulted sheer cliff walls guarded by mysterious gates and challenging whitewater suitable for intermediate or advanced canoeists.Part of the Mackenzie River basin, it lies within the Arctic watershed flowing northeast along the border of the Yukon and Northwest Territories. When the float plane dips its wing to land on Dusty Lake, trippers take in the vast landscape with the towering Selwyn Mountains dominating the view. This classic mountain river flows through a panorama of mountains with magnificent scenery, abundant wildlife, alpine hiking, steady current and miles of runnable rapids. Inviting alpine slopes descend to near river level. This river is suitable for a more experienced paddler looking to hone their skills on one of the most iconic river systems of the north. In its upper reaches, the Mountain is a frisky, quick-paced river with challenging rapids with many lively turns. Watching this river grow from a tiny stream deep in the mountains to a broad, mature river tells the complete story of a magnificent river journey. Steady current takes paddlers through gracious curves and along soaring cliff faces and sandy slopes. Paddling through six whitewater canyons, hiking up mountainsides and exploring unusual land formations define the Mountain River. The river promises glimpses of ancient moonscapes and large tufa rock formations that stand as sentinels among the white and black spruce of the Boreal forest. The canyon entrances at Battleship Rock and Cache Creek remind us of the invitation from this wild land to keep our eyes open. As she drops her veil, the land allows us to glimpse the story that time has carved out of this world. A waterfall and icy, watery cave at Cache Creek are unique features that can be explored. We take on the whitewater that is fun and fair giving us that exhilaration that combines a feeling of well-being with accomplishment. A therapeutic hot-spring offers a luxurious soak! As the mountains pull away into a broad panoramic valley, the Mountain River joins the mighty Mackenzie River where the trip ends.
