Discover an area steeped in Aboriginal history: learn how, for 12,000 years, the river served as a travel route for Mountain Dene hunters, who trapped beaver and hunted moose, then used the hides to build skin boats.

Experience an extraordinary trip in the company of personal guides who openly share their love and knowledge of the Keele River.
