ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The Northwest Territories encompasses more than half a million square miles of Subarctic and Arctic wilds, a remote and pristine wilderness mottled with rivers and lakes and home to ancient beasts like muskox, bison, caribou and bald eagles. Beneath the warm light of the “midnight sun,” experience a seemingly limitless expanse of untouched river valleys, mountains and boreal forests. In the remote Charter Community of Deline, discover the rich history of the Dene aboriginal people through living stories, traditional practices and their connection to the land.


• Experience the beauty of the “midnight sun” and have tea at the Prophets House with Dene elders while they share the stories of their oral tradition.
• Explore the vast and incredible landscape of the Mackenzie Mountains by plane, soaring over rivers and canyons and stopping for a canyon walk.
• Join a community elder, accomplished artist and drum maker to learn about traditional fishing and hunting methods while hearing tales about life on the land.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles at a moderate pace.
