Where the alpine mountains meet the ocean, you will find glaciers and snowfields, while farther inland stretch extensive plains ideal for horse trekking and stargazing. If your trip to Mackenzie District falls in warm weather, head to the lakes and rivers for fishing trips and water sports. Scenic flights make a superb way of getting a fresh perspective on the vast region.
