Slave River. Information.
NT Government, Our Top Waterways.
“This wide river flows north through Wood Buffalo National Park. The river is quiet till you reach the series of four rapids between Fort Fitzgerald and Fort Smith. Below the rapids, the river travels about 290 km to Great Slave Lake. There's plenty of forest and wildlife, and some rapids, shallows and sandbars on the way to Fort Resolution.”
