This was a magical experience and not just because we earned the "Aurora Lights Snob" award (the lights danced to their best on our tour). Tracy organised a truly wonderful tour; she was welcoming, friendly and enthusiastic to share her heritage and magical home with us. The warm and cosy cottage was a perfect retreat from the cold, where she cooked up a storm. However, the main highlight was the beautiful outdoors area, where we witnessed the amazing lights. What an "out of this world" experience. There were comfortable chairs to lounge in and immerse ourselves in the sky, lights and stars. She also provided fur coats to keep us extra warm, so we could lie in the snow to watch the light spectacle. We could not recommend this experience with Tracy more highly.

Tracy was an incredible host. She made an effort to get to know us and make us comfortable. She cooked an excellent meal for us and took photographs and was easy going and give us local historians advice which we found extremely useful.
.The cabin itself is situated in an excellent location to watch the Aurora.It was comfortable ,warm and Cozy as indicated in the tour title. We as a family enjoyed it and had wonderful viewing. We highly recommend the tour for a unique personal experience.

We did three aurora tours during our stay in Yellowknife, and hand on heart this one was by far the best. While the other two tours had been a drive around-aurora chase, this was located at a cabin. The advantages of the cabin were it was a lot more warm and comfortable, easier to chat with the rest of the group, had a washroom, and you had the choice of chilling out in the cabin or sitting outside in the snow under the heavens. As a photographer this allowed me to set up gear and evaluate shooting spots should the aurora happen.
Tracy and Derrick were lovely and knowledgeable hosts, somehow managing to work the room, keep an eye on the skies, entertain us with stories, all whilst cooking bannock and chowder!
My wife and I stood outside the cabin after supper discussing that regardless of the aurora turning up or not, that this had been the best tour on our visit to Yellowknife.

My mom and I were in Yellowknife for five nights, and did four different tours. The Bucket List tour was by far the best experience we had! Tracy is an amazing host. She made everything comfortable and easy, from pickup at our Airbnb in a nice van to her cozy cabin in the woods. The tour is limited to less than 20 guests, which is great. Plenty of room for everyone in the cabin, which is kept nice and warm while you wait for Aurora to come out. Once she does come out, the viewing location is excellent! It's an easy 20-minute drive from Yellowknife, but there is no light pollution. The homemade soup and bannock were wonderful, but what we loved the most was Tracy's commitment to seeing Aurora. Unlike other tour operators, if there is hope of seeing the lights, Tracy will keep the tour going. I highly recommend any of Tracy's tours, but especially the Aurora tour!

This is a MUST booked aurora viewing tour. Tracy's hospitality was second to none. The cabin was warm & cozy, the bannock & fish soup were excellent experience, and transportation was comfortable. Additionally, she was caring and made sure that every family and group had opportunity to take photos with the aurora borealis. We will definitely booked the tour again if we return to Yellowknife.

Tracy is great! Picked up on time, easy 10-15 min ride to cabin while she let us know what to expect. Enjoyed relaxing around tables inside the cabin while she cooked delicious bannock chowder (so good) and fresh bread. She talked about life in Yellowknife and all of her experiences there while we waited for the clouds to clear. Relaxed around the fire with s’mores until finally it was time to go home. No aurora because of the clouds but a lovely evening.

Yes, the reason for the chowder and Bannock is for the NO Aurora nights. When she fills our skies, hot water does the trick. Thank You for the kind review. Tracy

Awesome! Tracy went above and beyond to ensure the needs of the customers were taken care of: from clothing, to food, to heat, to staying longer at the cabin to allow us to continue taking pictures of the Northern Lights. Cozy Cabin tours exceeded our expectations. Cozy Cabin Tours is a must in Yellowknife, Canada!
