Canadian River Expeditions Offers Trips on Horton River for First Time in 12 Years


- Advertisment -

Since 1972, Nahanni River Adventures / Canadian River Expeditions has been guiding world-class vacations on the top rivers in northern Canada and Alaska. Now, the premium-class rafting and paddling expeditions outfitter is running canoe trips on the Horton River for the first time in 12 years.

The Horton River is the most northernly flowing river on continental North America and one of most remote and pristine river systems. Located in the heart of the Arctic, the Horton is renowned for its sheer beauty and untouched wilderness.

“As a guide and outfitter, we are often the eyes and ears on the ground,” says Joel Hibbard, owner of Canadian River Expeditions. “Having heard from biologists that the caribou herds’ numbers have stabilized, we are keen to see if we can cross paths with the post-calving migration and reconnect with this ancient landscape.”

Due to its remote location, running the Horton requires meticulous planning and execution. This year, Canadian River Expeditions, with their expertise and experience in organizing and guiding wilderness expeditions, undertook the task of re-establishing the logistical chain necessary for a successful journey along the Horton River.

The Horton canoe trip is a thirteen day adventure floating over 130 miles of water with the first trip of the season leaving July 8. In addition to paddling, there is an abundance of wildlife (caribou, muskoxen, wolves, grizzly and various birds) and wildflowers as well as tremendous hiking in the high arctic tundra. The minimum age to run the trip is 12 years old and the cost is $9,990 plus $120 Indigenous Lands Fee.
