Worth every penny!! We were recommended to this company after my sister and her husband traveled with Carlos a few years earlier! Lending up to our trip, we dealt entirely with Carlos by email. He was always professional and did not feel uneasy about it at all. He assisted us with booking our snowmobile and dog sledding trips too. Close... More

We had a great day out with Carlos. He was helpful and encouraging to a group of complete novices. Lunch at his cabin was a tasty combination of lake fish sashimi and a warming fish soup...thanks chef! The package included suitable outdoor clothing. This was my second trip with Carlos...the first last summer was a BBQ/Fishfry at his cabin. Again... More

This tour is slightly more than some of the others, but worth every penny. First of all, they give you extra clothing (they gave me ski pants) if they think what you are wearing is not warm enough. Some tours either charge you more for the gear, or don't even offer it. I met a woman who had been out... More

Carlos is the owner of this outfit and he is very experienced and knowledgeable about the region. Whether you are fishing, nature sight seeing or just adventuring, Carlos will fix you up. We had 7 people and it was very important that we have private tours, Carlos was able to accommodate whatever we wanted; Snowmobiling, dog sledding and Aurora Borealis... More

My husband and I went on a 2 hour snowmobile tour and it was amazing. The service was great and our guide made sure we had the right equipment and were comfortable on the snowmobile. The view while driving was stunning and the hot chocolate at the cabin half way through was greatly appreciated. This tour was well worth it... More

I have been to Yellowknife many times but have never snowmobiled there before. Last weekend with some friends I took the 2 hour snowmobile tour. Carlos was an excellent guide. He ensured everyone was prepared with proper clothing and safety instructions before we headed out. Before leaving he ensured we all knew how to operate our machine. Then we headed... More

We went Aurora Viewing with YOA two nights in a row. On the way to the Viewing area on the first night, the ride over the frozen lake was extremely bouncy !! This ride would not be good for someone with back or neck problems. The second night, the ride (with a different driver--a female) was much smoother. It may... More
