You will Explore Fort Providence

Kakisa

Tour Days: You will be in Fort Providence on days 5, and 6 of the Bucketlist Tour.

We will travel back west to the waterfalls route. At Louise and Alexandra Falls, a local guide will explain the history of aboriginal portage routes. We will dine at a rustic coffee shop in Enterprise featuring Winnie’s bison burgers and homemade pie! Next we will visit the small aboriginal community of Kakisa, on the shores of Kakisa Lake and the Kakisa River which feeds the breath taking Lady Evelyn Falls. We will cross the mighty Mackenzie River on a ferry/bridge on our way to the historic community of Fort Providence where we will spend the night at the Snowshoe Inn.

Breakfast is on your own.

We will enjoy a community tour with a local guide, visit Dene Fur Clouds and see a unique way of making fur garments, an historical church, and see bison fences. We will enjoy a short ride down the highway in the Mackenzie Bison Sanctuary and hopefully find a herd to photograph. We will return to Fort Providence for lunch, and start making our way to Fort Simpson.
