Cruises from Smoking Hills

The Smoking Hills are dotted along a 30 km section of coastline on the east coast of Cape Bathurst in Canada’s NW Territories. The coast faces Franklin Bay, which in turn lies to the SE of the Beaufort Sea. The coastline, at 70 degrees north, is near the mouth of the Horton River. Landings can be made to get up close to the natural fires burning exposed lignite (brown coal) and deposits of pyrite (rich in sulfur), and the smoke has acidified numerous small lakes nearby, as well as altered the vegetation locally.

The best way to see the acrid white smoke is by helicopter. The fumes contain sulfur dioxide, sulfuric acid and steam.
