Suggested Fly-In Sites

(2016 Rates)

*Take Advantage of our 2016 rates for your 2017 paddling adventures by booking your 2017 trip before February 28, 2017.

Yes, we fly canoes!  Take a step back in time, experience the thrill of flying out of Yellowknife's Old Town aboard a classic DHC-2 Beaver Floatplane. With your canoe tied to the side and your gear in the back, fly out over the vast and beautiful wilderness that surrounds Yellowknife.

There are an unlimited number of locations that you and your canoe can be delivered to or picked up from. We have provided a small selection below to help you with some of your initial planning. The charter rates quoted are all *inclusive and based on the conditions outlined below including the cairage of a rigid canoe as an external load. Aircraft payloads quoted are based on the use of "two-way" fuel loaded in Yellowknife. At additional charge, some payloads may be increased if necessary through the use of remotely cached aircraft fuel.

If you have a specific location in mind, require a greater payload, larger than provided in this quote please let us know and we would be more than happy to provide you with a personalised quote.

WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD RIGHT NOW AT UPDATING OUR WEBSITE WITH MORE TRIP AND ROUTE INFORMATION ALONG WITH AN ONLINE BOOKING OPTION FOR THE 2017 SEASON. PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON AND OFTEN AS WE MAKE POVEMENETS TO THE WEBSITE. (JANUARY 26, 2017) IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CALL US 867-920-4400

We look forward to working with you and being part of your next paddling adventure!!!
