Fort Liard is a small community in the southwest end of the Northwest Territories within the Dehcho region. It is not that far from the British Columbia and Yukon border. The hamlet has a population of about 600 with most of the people being of First Nations descent. The hamlet serves mainly as a supply centre and its main tourist attraction is the Nahanni National Park Reserve. The park has the distinction of being the first area in the world to receive a UNESCO designation as a World Heritage Site. The stunningly beautiful park is streamed by the South Nahanni River, which flows through the mountains near the border between the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Canoeists and whitewater rafters from all over the world come every year to paddle the river. A few tour operators and rafting companies in Fort Liard offer trip packages and guide services.
