We did a half day snowmobile trip with the wonderful guide, Valerie. She made sure we had all the correct clothing (which you borrow from them), taught us how to use the snowmobile and then we were off. I was extremely nervous and she was so good at helping me calm down and feel more comfortable. We went up the mountain and stopped at the top for a break and she was more than happy to take photos for us. Along the way we stopped when she saw any animal tracks or to point out points of interest. On the way down she was excellent when we had some difficulty and made sure that our safety was always her top priority. After a stop for cookies and hot chocolate we were off again and back to the ranch. We couldn't believe how quickly the time went. The experience was a present for my partner and it was a once in a lifetime trip for both of us!

UpNorth pulled out the stops to make a day trip for myself and my Mom a couple years ago despite our last minute request. One of the best nature experiences I've ever had doing the self-guided eagle tour on the river. Fantastic service all around!

We did a half-day snowmobiling tour with Up North as a part of a multi-day package from a tour company. Our guide was nice and friendly and taught us a lot about the local area and wildlife. After a quick tutorial, we went out on 2 person snowmobiles (separate seats, comfortable) and each took turns driving throughout the tour. It was a bit tiring on your hand, so the breaks were nice and the views were fantastic. We enjoyed the photography and snack stops and really had a lot of fun. It was exciting seeing the dog sled teams around as well and especially the puppy den back at the main cabin. Up North provides extra gear to make sure you are dressed warm enough and that was very much appreciated. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it!

We booked a 3-day, 2-night trip with Up North Adventures to film a winter survival expedition in the Yukon. Mark and the other three guides were AMAZING. We had a crew of 7 individuals, and at every stage -- from the initial planning stage to our actual trek -- the team from Up North Adventures was incredible. Despite the sub-zero temps, our team was warm and safe the entire time. (Not to mention, the food they provided was fantastic, and we had an absolute blast snowmobiling, ice fishing and dog sledding.) Whether you're planning a larger film shoot like we were, or you're just going out for an afternoon of fun, I'd highly recommend Up North Adventures.

We booked an afternoon of snowmobiling with our Northern Tales experience. We were provided with safety equipment and briefing. Our skills were checked before we left and we were off across the frozen lake trusting the ice was thick enough, pleased to report it was. Wonderful views once we climbed up the hills. A fun filled afternoon with special thanks to Walter who ensured we had fun while being safe.
