We did icefishing and snowmobile trip with Carlos and his team. They were both well organized and enjoyable. I lost my GoPro camera in the snow in the middle of the trip but they managed to retrieve it quickly!

The very entire experience was fun and very exciting!! The guide was even awesome giving the safety briefing. One of the members of the tour lost his camera and our guide took off after we had returned to the office. Our guide was gone three minutes with the clients camera!! That was worth the price of the trip.

Kudos to Carlos and his team! We had an unforgettable experience in Yellowknife! Despite the peak period over the New Year, Carlos was able to accommodate us on such a short notice. He responded to our emails promptly and we were able to book two nights on the Aurora Adventure Tour and a 1-hour Nature Viewing by Snowmobile Day Tour.... More

The trip was very good but in our group of about 12 people, there were 3 that couldn't ride and slowed the whole group down, making the trip less fun. Perhaps a quick beginner class or a way to 'sort' people so that everyone can enjoy the trip. Would have been a 10/10 trip but unfortunately not the case.

After reading other reviews on TripAdvisor, we were pretty confident about booking with Carlos, but he blew our expectations out of the water. We booked the Aurora Adventure Viewing Tour. After a van ride over the frozen lake, you arrive at Carlos' very well appointed cabin. The cabin was spacious, but cozy with a word burning stove to keep everyone... More

Carlos makes fishing fun and he is extremely talented in finding the fish. His customer service is great. And the fish you will catch are " UGE" (i.e. huge).

This was my second trip with Carlos fishing pike on Great Slave. It is an awesome trip. Carlos is a fantastic guide. I would highly recommend this trip - whether you are a fishing expert or a novice, Carlos will make it an unforgettable experience. If you are visiting Yellowknife this is an experience you should not miss!

Myself and three other friends went on the Great Slave Pike Fishing trip and it was amazing! Charlie was the guide on our boat and he was wonderful! He taught us a lot about the Yellowknife area and history. Charlie was funny, but also very kind and helpful. I managed to catch the biggest fish I've ever caught at 41.5... More

Had an awesome time on the lake and Carlos cooked us the best fish fry that we have ever had. Highly recommend this short 4 hr adventure.

We took our Aunt and Uncle who are in their 70's on a day trip with Carlos. Carlos taught Auntie Juanita to cast and he teased her until she caught her first fish in "last chance bay". He helped Uncle Rollie bring in a big trophy pike that was 45 inches long. Carlos is entertaining and funny and a terrific... More
