When I suggested going to Yellowknife, my husband and two kids, aged 10, thought I had gone mad. At the end of our four day trip, we all agreed that they had a great time! It wouldn't have been possible without Carlos, who pulled together the activities we wanted into a tour package. Carlos took us on a city tour... More

After trying 4 different Aurora tours, we had one last night. Carlos, hook us up, please...He did. The equipment for snowmobiling was well maintained and new, the snow machines worked perfectly and were fun but it was crazy cold in that breeze going back...remember your layers and serious gloves. Carlos has an amazing set up at his cabin on the... More

Outstanding tour and tour guide! Carlos was extremely knowledgeable, very good instructor on snowmobile basics. Saw some amazing Auroras at his cabin. Thanks for dressing us so warmly for the trip and the yummy meatballs! Very highly recommend touring with Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures!

My wife and I had a great experience with Carlos on a 2 hour snowmobile tour last weekend. We got there, suited up, and got out on the lake fast! Carlos is a class act all the way. I'd love to come back up in the summer to fish now. Thanks for the great adventure!

My family (from Hong Kong) joined Outdoor Adventure's aurora viewing tours by snowmobile in late January 2014. It was an excellent experience to drive snowmobile to Carlos's cozy cabin from Yellowknife old town across Great Slave Lake and viewed the dancing of aurora borealis on the Lake. The cabin provided shelter while we were waiting for appearance of aurora borealis.... More

We had a great 2 hour excursion with Carlos on snowmobiles. For my taste, I think this was the perfect amount of time. Both my fiancee and I had never ridden a snowmobile, but we were quick to pick it up. Carlos will go on ahead, so if you want to go faster you can try and keep up. That... More

I recently moved to Yellowknife, and have been “touring” around trying to see and do as much as I can in the Yellowknife area. A friend and I went out with Carlos, this past weekend and it was a true northern experience. We were outfitted with warm snowmobiling gear, the snow mobiles were in excellent condition and even have hand... More

Based on the very positive reviews on Tripadvisor I contacted YOA to suggest a programme for a stay of 2.5 days (end of February). Carlos responded very quickly with excellent suggestions (i.e. 2 nights aurora viewing, and city tour, snowmobiling and dog sledding during daytime) at a very reasonable price. The organization was flawless and it was a great experience.... More

My friend and I went on the snowmobile/aurora tour with YKOA last weekend and had an unbelievable time! Carlos, our guide, hosted a group of 8 for an evening snowmobile tour to his cabin where we hunkered down by the warmth of the fire in anticipation of the arrival of the aurora borealis. And we were in for a treat!... More
