Gateway to Peel Wilderness
Home of Na-Cho Nyak Dun First Nation, Mayo is a century-old village situated near the confluence of the Stewart and Mayo Rivers. Formerly known as Mayo Landing, the town was established in the early 1900s as a river settlement and port for silver-lead shipments from the Keno mining district.
Today, Mayo is a thriving regional centre that is centered around tourism, outfitting and adventure tours and mining operations. Mayo is the staging point for backcountry wilderness trips into the Peel River Watershed. You'll find the full range of visitor services in Mayo including restaurants, accommodations, air charter services, and historical and visitor information. Binet House, a restored heritage building in Mayo, is a visitor centre operated by the community with interpretive displays, a gift shop and visitor information.
