Every year, people from all over the world come to Fort Simpson to experience the Nahanni first-hand. To see this breathtaking wilderness, more people choose Simpson Air than any other air charter service.

We offer flights to all the communities in the Northwest Territories, but this does not limit our wings to the rest of Canada. Ask us about charters to your particular destination, we'd be happy to offer our service.

At Simpson Air we are fully capable of meeting your various charter needs safely and affordably. Wheel, float and off-strip capabilities, plus single and multi-engine aircraft means that we are able to transport passengers and cargo anywhere in the north. Our wheeled aircraft regularly service communities in the Deh Cho Region and beyond.

Information on charter rates is on our Reservations page. For detailed information and availability please contact our office.

Fishing Trips 

Generally speaking both Pike (Jackfish) and Pickerel (Walleye) are plentiful in June; Northern Pike and Lake Trout are more popular in July and August (into September). Arctic Grayling are not found at Moose River; however they can be caught at Little Doctor Lake. The Moose River location is in greater demand after spring thaw in the month of June.

To reserve a particular date and time for your trip, we ask that a non-refundable deposit of $100.00 per person be forwarded to our office.

  • There are several options available for fishing trips in the Fort Simpson area. One of course is the Nahanni Mountain Lodge, a truly tranquil hide away along the eastern shore of Little Doctor Lake, 60 miles west of Fort Simpson.

    This rustic Lodge sleeps eight people comfortably in two log cabins, which are fully equipped with kitchen items, propane fridge and stove, and wood heaters. There is a beautiful sand beach, good swimming, wildlife, and exceptional scenery at the front door. Boat, motor, gas, canoes, paddles, and lifejackets are provided for your use. The cost for trips to Nahanni Mountain Lodge includes air transportation to the lodge and the lodge fee.

  • Moose River is another favourite — a fly-in fishing trip on the northern shore of Trout Lake. You are required to bring all your gear and necessities, as there are no services at this location (or talk to us about renting gear so you can pack lighter).

    A charter to Moose River in the Beaver can take up to six passengers and a payload of 1420 pounds.

    The pilot and plane will stay with you for up to 4 hours or until you are ready to return to Fort Simpson.

  • Visitors between the ages of 16 and 65 require a NWT fishing license. You can obtain one by mail, from government offices or select stores and lodges in the territory.
