It was the first stand-up paddleboard descent of the iconic Mountain River—but that was hardly the point of experiencing one of the continent’s last great wildernesses. It’s July 1st, the start of our two-week voyage down the famed Mountain River in the Northwest Territories. We’re eating bacon and pancakes drenched in maple syrup, listening to The Tragically Hip, and it’s the country’s 150th birthday to boot. It doesn’t get more Canadian than this.
Welcome to Spectacular NWT Travel Media.
Catch a trophy fish in the pristine waters of our Northern great lakes. Paddle through the great canyons of the Nahanni, or rush headlong into the whitewater of the Slave River. Enjoy road trips that take you farther than anywhere else (ever wanted to see the Arctic Ocean?), or simply stand in awe under the swirling lights and colours of the best Aurora on the planet. Just remember to breathe from time to time.
If you are interested in shooting a film in the NWT the NWT Film Commission can help. They have staff who can be your liaison through every phase of your production. Please contact:
