What you'll do

This 9 day kayak expedition is one to check the Canadian North off your bucket list. We'll fly with a float plane air charter to the fabled East Arm of Great Slave Lake. This place is on the cusp of being home to Canada's newest national park: Thai Dene Nene, otherwise known as "the land of our ancestors" by the local Chipewyan Dene who will co-manage the park. Stunning granite cliffs, glittering Northern lights and world-class trout fishing are highlights of this expedition. The trip is open to beginner and intermediate paddlers.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 12 and up can attend. The activity level for this adventure is moderate. Guests must have backcountry camping experience. This is a trip to a remote wilderness location.

More tips

The East Arm is a remote location, so previous paddling experience in a kayak is an asset. Participants are not required to be proficient or highly-skilled paddlers, but should be familiar with the basics of kayaking and paddled in a kayak at least once before.
