Gateway to the Nahanni
Welcome to the community of Fort Simpson. We are the only Village in the NWT and we are proud of our unique small-town status. Our smaller size (pop. 1250) means that we really do notice travellers. We also want to make your visit a memorable one. Whether you have come to experience our Dene culture, witness the terrifying rumble of Virginia Falls, or slip a canoe into the mighty Mackenzie River (the Dene name is Dehcho), our businesses and people are ready to accommodate your needs.
