Mackenzie River


The Mackenzie River, also known as Deh Cho (big river), is recognized for its historical significance of being one of the routes for transportation for delivering goods with trading posts all around the area to its other destinations in the North.

It is the second-largest river in North America, after the Mississippi River. Still, it also has excellent river connections and accessibility throughout the communities in the Northwest Territories, including Fort Good Hope and the rest of the Great Slave Lake Region.

The river was discovered and explored by explorers, missionaries, and traders, including Alexander Mackenzie, who happened to be a European fur trader and explored the river in 1789.  The landmark’s attraction is also known for scenic views of the mountains, river, boat paddling, and camping opportunities.
