Deline, Northwest Territories - the birthplace of Hockey, home to the biggest lake trouts in the world, and the only community on the western shore of Great Bear Lake.
Alone on a Lake approximately the size of the Netherlands and near the Arctic Circle, Deline is a place where culture and traditions of the Dene First Nation flourish. There are no roads to bring you here most of the year – air access is the only option. For its people, this remoteness means a connection to the land remains a way of life. For visitors, year – round cultural experiences and outdoor adventures take place against the backdrop of the solitude and silence of this scenic northern landscape.
A Land and a Way of Life Preserved
Deline residents are largely Dene or Metis who speak the North Slavey language and English. Sahtú Dene families are often related to Hare, Gwich’in and Mountain Dene peoples. The people of Great Bear Lake had to be hardy and resourceful to survive in the past. Within living memory, they lived a nomadic life, following fish and game with the seasons. Many still supplement their diets by hunting, fishing and trapping at least part of the time. Although modern life has made its way North, Deline homes often feature a traditional lodge or tipi used to smoke meat and fish.
Whether its for a corporate retreat, small group gathering, a fishing adventure, or on an organized tour, we look forward to sharing our stories with you. Welcome to Deline !

Jocelyn Demetre's Great Slave Lake Safaris
Un voyage de pêche guidé sous le soleil de minuit. C’est ce que je vous offre, des prises et des souvenirs inoubliables. Capitaine d’infanterie retraité des Forces Armées Canadiennes, je suis maintenant guide professionnel sur le Grand Lac des Esclaves. Un plan d’eau que je parcours de fond en comble depuis plus de trois ans. Tout comme moi, vous tomberez en amour avec le neuvième lac le plus grand au monde et le plus profond en Amérique du Nord.
Imaginez-vous quitter Yellowknife à bord d’un bateau de pêche se dirigeant vers des endroits poissonneux aux décors nordiques. Des poissons énormes dans les eaux claires et profondes du Bras Est et des combats dignes du 60e parallèle. Dormir sous le soleil de minuit à l’intérieur d’une tente prospecteur qui sera éloignée des prédateurs sur une des belles îles rocheuses du plan d’eau. Une expérience qui ne peut laisser indifférent les amateurs de plein air. L’été, le temps de pêche est maximisé par un ensoleillement de 18 à 20 hrs par jour qui vous permettra de prendre le poisson dont vous aviez tant rêvé.
C’est ça mon Yellowknife! Venez me rejoindre et je vous guiderez personnellement à bord de mon bateau équipé pour une pêche tel que vous le désirez. À la traîne ou au lancé léger vous ne quitterez pas mon bateau sans avoir fait votre lots de remise à l’eau. Foulez vous aussi un des sols tant convoité par la ruée vers l’or, venez vous joindre à moi pour écrire une page de votre histoire, là où le soleil ne se couche jamais.
