Getting Here

The rendezvous location is listed in each trip itinerary. Quite likely you’ve already decided how to travel to our rendezvous point. Please pursue this as soon as possible. If you’re flying, you will want to ensure that you get a seat on the day you wish and the best price possible. Below are some details to assist you.

Rendezvous time

The specific itinerary for your trip will designate the arrival date and meeting time. Your guides will be busy finalizing details until that time. Only in Fort Simpson do we meet and greet at the airport and only on the designated day. You are certainly welcome to arrive a day or more in advance and find your own way to your accommodation. The number of cabs in small communities is limited so be prepared to be patient and enjoy your new surroundings if you have to wait for a pick-up.

“Day 0” on my itinerary – what is that?

Different rivers present different logistical considerations. On the Nahanni we board a float plane soon after your arrival in Fort Simpson. This is “Day 1.” On other rivers it works better if we have our pre-trip meeting in the evening of “Day 0” and then depart early the following morning for the put-in. We’ve used “Day 0” for those trips where you meet in the evening.

If you’re still unsure, consider it this way: 
On any trip, you need to arrive at the meeting point on the date listed as the first day in the “Dates and Rates” list and you may travel home on the last date listed for your trip.

In our welcome aboard letter, we will specify on which date you need to arrive at the meeting location and which day you may plan to fly home. Please feel free to confirm this with us before booking your ticket.
