Welcome to Norman Wells!
Located in the MacKenzie Valley, bordered by the Rocky Mountains and the massive
, Norman Wells is a remote village with a population of less than 1,000.
Those who make the journey to the little town in the Northwest
will be rewarded with impressive scenery and a wealth of outdoor
pursuits. Canoeing, kayaking and fishing are only a few of the activities to undertake
on the MacKenzie River and The
Norman Wells Ski Club
maintains 40 km (25 mi) of marked trails, including
25 km (15.5 mi) that are well-groomed, in and around the town, giving locals and
visitors the opportunity to snowshoe and cross-country ski. The rugged Canol
, which follows an oil pipeline used during the Second World
War and was shut down shortly afterwards, gives visitors a chance to explore the
north on foot. Celebrate First Nations heritage during the festivities surrounding
, or bring home a souvenir from the MacKenzie
, which displays the work of First Nations artists.
