Like in the time of the aboriginal ancestors, Fort Simpson and area residents make use of the river systems to get to and from the various hamlets and villages.  The road system includes the use of ferries in summer and roads over the frozen rivers in the winter.  Every spring and fall, there is about one month where the only access to Fort Simpson is by air.

Fort Simpson and area are also serviced by helicopters, airplanes, and float planes.
