We had a great time with Carlos for the snowmobile and Northern lights tour! We got to ride the snowmobile for about 30 mins each way to the cabin, over a frozen lake. It was nice that there were gloves, boots and other winter gear for anyone who might not be adequately dressed. The Northern Lights were gorgeous! We weren't... More

I just came back from an amazing 5 days in Yellowknife over Christmas '14 and for all nights we had booked the Aurora Viewing by Snowmobile tour. Carlos runs these tours and he took care of all our needs. Upon arrival in Yellowknife we took a taxi to Coast Fraser Tower Hotel (we took care of the flight and accommodation... More

I scheduled a last minute trip to Yellowknife in late December 2014 and as such, had to schedule all my activities last minute as well. Carlos was very accommodating adding me to his scheduled activities at a fair price despite being a one-man operation. He has top-notch equipment and gear and a very good demeanor in dealing with the tourists;... More

Carlos booked us on a flight-seeing tour (which was amazing, by the way!) and he really took care of us. With weather delays and airplane mechanical problems, we never had to worry - Carlos was a phone call away and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible. We had a wonderful trip, which would have been very stressful without... More

We had an amazing day with Carlos on this trip! The weather was great, we all caught some big Pike some over a meter long and weighing up to 20 pounds. We also got a great look at the scenery around the lake and some wildlife like bald eagle! This is a must do. Highly recommended!

We spent about 4 hours fishing with Carolos Gonzalez, owner of YK Outdoor Adventures. He was recommended by another outfitter and we are glad we spent our limited time here with him. He was very careful to make sure that we were looked after (gear, etc.) and then entertained us with his knowledge of the area, as well as his... More

Recommended locally, reviewed TAdvisor and our experience was exciting, exhilirating and excellent (my highest 3 "ex" rating). We will soon book again with Carlos. I must mention something I have not seen in other reviews is that Carlos speaks French and Spanish in additiont to English. Ask him about the conditions and what to wear, etc. He gladly will answer... More
