Fort Simpson NWT & area

Visitors from around the world arrive in Fort Simpson as it is the Gateway to the UNESCO designated Nahanni National Park Reserve, and other wilderness adventures—fishing, hunting, backpacking, canoeing, rafting, and more.

From a trading post in 1801 to a hub of activity, tourism, business, and gateway to the Nahanni National Park, Fort Simpson NWT is an ideal place to stay awhile. See our amenities and ask about special packages for longer-term stays.

This is our village and we’re happy to help with tips on places to eat, flight tours, boat tours, fishing and canoeing trips, and more. There is so much to see and do. We may even have some suggestions you haven’t thought of. Get in touch! We’re happy to help.
