Nááts‘ihch‘oh National Park Reserve

July, 2023

Nááts‘ihch‘oh National Park Reserve is a Canadian national park reserve encompassing parts of the South Nahanni River watershed in the Northwest Territories. The name means “stands like a porcupine” in the Dene language.

This National Park Reserve is hallowed ground for thrill-seeking whitewater paddlers, with some of the most scenic, technically challenging and least travelled rivers in all of the North. Three rushing waterways, making up the wild headwaters of Tehjeh Deé (South Nahanni River), stand out in particular: Pı̨́ı̨́p’enéh łéetǫ́ǫ́ Deé (the Broken Skull River), Upper Tehjeh Deé (the South Nahanni), and Łáhtanįlį Deé (Little Nahanni). Among whitewater lovers, these rivers are spoken of in reverential tones.
