Once an historic fur-trading post, the town of Fort Simpson is located at the confluence of the Liard and Mackenzie Rivers. Our nearby communities include Trout Lake, Jean Marie, Fort Liard, Nahanni Butte and Wrigley. The Slavey who live in these quiet settlements still live a largely traditional life off the land, fishing, hunting and trapping. The land has always been important in the spiritual life of the local people.

Let a bush pilot show you the wonders of the Nahanni-Ram country; the wide sweep of the Mackenzie River, the second-longest river in North America; the rugged Mackenzie Mountains, the largest uninhabited mountain range in the world; the unforgettable South Nahanni River whose dramatic landscapes make it a Canadian Heritage River, a World Heritage Site, and the centrepiece of Nahanni National Park. Get a magnificent aerial view of Canada's best-kept secret; the 'other' Nahanni, where few but bush pilots have ever ventured.
