Black Feather Natla-Keele River Canoe Trip

Suggested Retail:
$7295 CAD

The Natla-Keele is one of the most spectacular, yet unknown, rivers in the Northwest Territories. The Keele River system drains a large area of the Mackenzie Mountains between the Nahanni and Mountain Rivers. The trip begins with an awe-inspiring flight through the mountains to O'Grady Lake - a blue jewel near the Yukon border and the headwaters of the Natla River (the southern-most branch of the Keele River). The river drops over 600 metres (2000) in 200 km of swifts and rapids - similar to the famous Rock Gardens on the Nahanni. This section of the trip is for the avid canoeist who has solid whitewater skills. After joining the Keele River, the route flows another 300 km through beautiful mountain ranges to the Mackenzie River. The river valley is home to caribou, grizzly bears, Dall sheep, and wolves. The Keele is a fun stretch with lots of runnable rapids which are suitable for paddlers of all skill levels. The Natla-Keele River trip is a good choice for those with solid whitewater skills, previous river canoe tripping experience, and reasonable fitness levels. Novices should gain experience elsewhere before considering this route. Less experienced paddlers can join the trip on Day 8 (July 17) for the more relaxing 12-day Keele River section of the expedition.
