The Canadian Heritage Kazan flows through classic tundra barrenground with an unmatched opportunity to see migrating caribou, wolves, muskoxen, barren ground grizzlies, eagles, falcons and swans. The river valley is also rich with evidence of human history. Remnants of Thule, Dene and Inuit habitation dot the landscape; tent rings, kayak stands and meat caches long empty point to their ancient campsites. There are numerous opportunities for day hikes in pursuit of musk-oxen, tundra wolves and plant species found nowhere else in the barrenlands. There are a only a few rapids on this section so this trip does not require any paddling experience.
