Nahanni National Park Reserve (Nah?a Dehé) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site globally renowned for its geologic landforms. An incomparable northern wilderness, Nah?a Dehé harbours sheer granite spires, vast alpine plateaus and, at its heart, the South Nahanni, a Canadian Heritage River. This great-spirit water thunders at Nájljcho (Virginia Falls) and has carved the deepest canyons in Canada. Natural labryinths of the North Nahanni Karst are among the most spectacular examples of this landform type and the Gahnîhthah mineral springs form Canada’s largest tufa mounds.
The tufa mounds are home to the horizon walker, Yamba Deja, who created Dene law. Visitors are welcomed to the land by the Dehcho First Nations, whose ancestors have called Nah?a Dehé home since time before memory. Climbers, hikers, paddlers and visitors of all kinds find personal inspiration and connection to this rugged land and its people.

Simpson Air/Nahanni Mountain Lodge
See the iconic Nahanni National Park Reserve, Canada's answer to the Grand Canyon, on a private flight with Simpson Air pilot (and former RCMP officer) Ted Grant as your guide.
Imagine sitting on the beach just outside the cabin on your own private lake. Nahanni Mountain Lodge is that remote, private, wilderness paradise. Marvel at pristine waters right at your front door that shimmer from the base of the Nahanni Mountain Range.
The lodge is nestled in the trees along the eastern shore of scenic Little Doctor Lake, 60 miles west of Fort Simpson. Formerly the home of Gus and Mary Kraus, pioneers of the north, Nahanni Mountain Lodge is now owned and operated by Ted Grant, the owner of Simpson Air. The lodge is accessible only by our floatplanes in the summer.
