We drove about a half an hour out of town to the site where we had to change our clothes. We wore winter heavy boots, pants, jacket etc., but our guide wanted us to put on even heavier clothes and balaclava around our face/neck. Our guide said he is retired, but does these tours in the winter.

Most of the trip was fine except one incident. Our guide said we would have to pull over on the narrow trail if a dog sled team came by. Sure enough, there was a group of 4 dog sleds stopped on the path near the lake. The woman driving the snowmobile in front of me headed left into a snow bank. I followed behind to get off the path, but didn’t go as far into the side bank as she did. Our guide said he would have to get her sled out of the snow, so had them get off the machine. For us, he just said to come back onto the path. Keeping in mind this is the first time we have ever sat on a snow machine, we were quite scared when I slowly moved the machine out of the snow, down the bank, and we thought it was going to tip over. We both put out our feet to stop from rolling. Our guide came back and said to never put our feet down! … It was an understandable reaction. I told him that if we were in a situation like that again, I would appreciate it if HE would get the sled out for us, and not leave it to us when we are not sure of what we are doing.

About half way through the day, after our stop at a lookout, he said we could change drivers. (Two people share the snow machine and each has a turn at driving.) Then he said the following section “was going to be a bit technical”. That’s scary. Now we have a NEW driver, and the trail is going to get tougher to drive? We went a short distance and he said it was going to be too tough, and had us all turn around to head back down the hill where we had come from.

Thank you so much for your review! We're glad that you were able to take advantage of the extra winter gear that we provide for those colder days, especially on our snowmobiling and ice fishing tours. We're also pleased to hear that your guide took excellent care of you: extricating machines when guests were unable to, instructions to protect you from bodily harm (no leg can prevent a machine from rolling over!), cautions about the coming trail before the option for guests to switch drivers, and a sound decision to reroute the group when the trail wasn't safe to proceed. It sounds like you had a wonderful tour with a well-experienced guide who kept everyone safe and warm and prevented any incidents while out on the machines. Thanks for recommending Up North Adventures!

Had such a wonderful experience with up northern. Staff was nothing but kind, helpful and attentive. We booked an ice fishing tour. It was cold but beautiful. Tour guides provided warm clothes, made sure we had all instructions and were safe. They even gave us hot chocolate and cookies during ice fishing. Definitely recommend!

Amazing aurora view your. The guide was super friendly (Derek), and really cared about us experiencing the northern lights. When we were about to leave, the northern lights started their show and he went running to the van and said: come come, it’s happening. We stayed around 40 min more than the limit, and was an unforgettable experience. He was extremely nice, outgoing and caring.

Thank you for your wonderful review. The guides definitely want you to have the experience that you hoped for, and in this case Derek went over and above in order to do so. I'm so glad that you were able to enjoy an amazing show of aurora!

My friend and I had a 1 day excursion including snowmobiling and ice fishing. Our guide Kiran was superb with lots of experience, good humour, and attentiveness. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the snowmobiling was unforgettable with incredible mountain too sunrise views and the ice fishing was a nice chance to learn more about the region while being surrounded by all the beauty at fish lake. I would absolutely do this again!

Kieran, our guide, was amazing! We didn’t roll over and got to see a lynx! The views were incredible. We went all the way up the mountain, and being able to see the airport, city, mountains, river, lake, and tree line all in one amazing view. It was amazing. I cannot stress enough how worth it this trip was. I would 100% recommend.

I participated in a half-day snowmobiling tour with Up North as part of a tour at Muktuk Adventures, but I'd recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing time out in the snow- my guide, Kieran, was one of the coolest dudes I've ever had the joy of meeting, and my time spent snowmobiling through the snow-covered forests, stopping to check out lynx and moose prints on the trail, and swapping stories on an ice-covered lake is one I'll be thinking about often. The tour was every bit as safe, interesting, and exciting as I could ever hope for, and I can't wait to return again.

Up North provided outfitter canoes and shuttle services for our canoe trip. The service was excellent from start to finish. If I could give more than five stars, I would.

We did the afternoon half day snowmobiling tour with Kyle & Kieran (Genuinely 2 of the nicest people/guides we've ever met). From transport, clothes fitting, safety demos on the Ski-Doos to the tour itself, everything was an amazing experience and our two guides couldn't have done more to ensure we had an amazing time! Our tour was roughly 2 1/2-3 hours long and took us across a frozen lake and up a stunning trail in the hills with a couple of stops along the way for interesting info and history and hot drinks and snacks at the half way point. All up we had an amazing time and would highly recommend Up North to everyone.

A special thanks to Kyle, who even went out of his way and dropped us back to our Airbnb after the tour which was unexpected and greatly appreciated! He is a true asset to your company!
