Ram Plateau, Nahanni National Park, NWT Canada


The first commercial hiking trip ever lead in on the Ram Plateau in the newly expanded Nahanni National Park, NWT.  This pristine area of alpine tundra is only accessible by helicopter or remotely by floatplane.  The area was the only area in the north to escape glaciation during the last ice age and as a result, has the most well developed Karst Lands in the Northern Hemisphere.  The flat alpine tundra plunges away into 2500 t deep canyons in all directions creating a labyrinth of accessible, easy unexplored hiking terrain.
