Hornaday River, Tuktut Nogait National Park, NWT

I have been trying to fit in an extended summer Arctic trip every year or two. This year we did a packrafting/backpacking trip down the Hornaday River, NWT, starting at Canoe Lake, and going as far as La Roncière Falls. The trip was taken over a busy 15 days, and we had decent water levels, beautiful waterfalls & tundra, many caribou, and some easy hikes to enjoy. It is mostly flatwater with a few easy riffles.

The narration is taken from my trip audio diary, so expect it to be somewhat unpolished.

Hi Steve,
Nice video and commentary. So where are you headed summer 2020? I’m always interested to join Far North explorations with packrafts!

Hi Watergirl, let’s followup by PM. Maybe we are doing some Mongolian travel, but not booked. Nahanni also on the radar.

I am planning a similar trip! Can we connect?
