Carlos is very knowledgable about Yellowknife . He drove us around town whilst pointing out places of interest and good places to eat. He then decked us out in warm clothing suitable for our aurora viewing. The clothing is rather bulky but it is very comfortable and excellent for standing/sitting around in the freezing cold marvelling at the aurora. Our... More

Fun, friendly, easy going group to book tours with. They work with you to make sure you are getting the best experience while in town. Was a little bit disappointed on the ice fishing tour as they gave us wooden poles instead of proper rods. When paying top dollar I would prefer proper, reliable gear.

We went out for 5 nights aurora watching and were successful on 3 nights. They fully kitted us out in winter gear so didn't need to buy all the bulky outdoor wear. The best part was the fantastic setup with viewing decks and awesome backdrop of the lake and other islands. Great service and very friendly! Highly recommend for snowmobile... More

We (group of 7) went to Yellowknife in Jan 2017. Before actually going there, I was not entirely sure what to expect. Let me tell you, I quickly realized that we were in good hands and Carlos and his gang made us feel at home right away. If you are like me and don't like big crowds while on a... More

We were in Yellowknife in late January and had a memorable stay there. Being from India, a tropical country we were initially terrified of the subarctic temperatures but thanks to all the gear provided by Carlos we had no serious issues even at -22 degrees C. We drove on the lake to a cozy cabin in the middle of nowhere... More

Time flies. One month already passed after one of my wife's bucket lists came true. (I am a good husband.. haha) However, we can still feel the night vividly and cannot forget it forever. It was not a dream but a reality. My family spent the unforgettable night on the last day of 2016 in Yellowknife. Actually, we did not... More

5 of us from work went. Very friendly staff. Experience of a lifetime. Wish we had done the 2 hour tour. 6" Fresh powder on lake made it even better. It's a must do.

Great exciting 3.5 hr snowmobile. After the ride, we rested in a shed that provided hot drinks and snacks for us. Great experience of snowmobile.

My friend and I booked Aurora Viewing with Carlos from Australia. Look no further, there is no other operator like Carlos and his team. They are extremely;y professional and their knowledge of the the area is second to none. We were extremely lucky we got to see the lights with our naked eyes on our second night night out to...
