The Original Nahanni River OutfitterCelebrating 50 years on the Nahanni River!
Our history of river outfitting on the South Nahanni River dates back to 1962 when founder and pioneering outfitter Don Turner began outfitting and guiding river trips by scow up into the Nahanni's canyons from his family's homestead at Nahanni Butte. Don is the son of Nahanni legend and author Dick Turner who came to the Nahanni Region in the 1930's. In 1964 Don's company became incorporated as Nahanni Butte Outfitters.
