I missed the Nahanni River and had a yearning in my bones to once again journey upon its waters. Year after year, its currents have lifted our boats as we share the wonders of the Canyon Kingdom with friends from around the world. To not be surrounded by its powerful landscapes in 2020 was a sure reminder of just how incredible it is!
After selecting a small crew of guides, we headed into the Northwest Territories and after a two week quarantine was completed we had a joyous return to the river that started it all for us. Joining us were a group of Yellowknife residents and photographer Angela Gzowski who captured these magic moments!
We were one of the only groups to have paddled the river in the past two years and to have Nahanni National Park reserve all to ourselves felt incredible! We were visited by varied wildlife, saw the full wonder of Virginia Falls and walked the trails that keep drawing us back!
We hope these images spark warm memories and leave you inspired to journey upon The River with a Beautiful Name!
