The Canoe North Adventures Lodge and Outfitting Centre

Officially “opened” in July, 2011, The CNA Lodge and Outfitting Centre is unlike any other canoeing facility in northern Canada. It serves as a canoeing resource and training centre, an outfitting rental centre and as a full-service Lodge B&B with accommodation and meals. The handsome timber-frame and log structure was expertly handcrafted by the Canoe North Adventures Guide Team. It is strategically located in Norman Wells, NWT at the North-Wright Air Float Base because of the close proximity to the glorious rivers of the Mackenzie Mountains in the Sahtu Region. The Outfitting Centre puts your group just yards away from the docks for the Twin Otter and Pilatus Porter floatplanes. With this world-class facility, Canoe North Adventures is the only guiding company that provides outstanding personalized  service from the moment your plane lands in Norman Wells to begin your trip until the moment you depart for home having experienced your trip of a lifetime.
