4 of us went on an 8 hour fishing trip with Carlos in the end of June '15. We caught around 80 large pike and had an amazing time. He was a very fun, informative guide and an excellent cook. Highly recommended for any beginner or experienced fishermen.

Simply put, Carlos knows what he is doing. He took my family, including our 6 year old son, and another couple fishing on Great Slave Lake on June 13, 2015. Everyone was successful in reeling in trophy sized pike (despite a serious lack of fishing experience). Most importantly, for families who might be interested, Carlos helped our son fish for...

Carlos was our guide & we had a great 1 hr. ride on snowmobiles. He made a point of stopping along the way to take pictures of us which was very nice. He came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. We were able to drive at speeds comfortable to each of us. Me made sure the arrangement of snowmobile lineup... More

We are a group of five ladies from Hong Kong and joined the snow mobile activities at 2015-03-24. The tour guide, Carlos, is so nice and efficient. He replied our enquires promptly. During the tour, he is very helpful, friendly and humorous. He took care of us and suited our needs. For example, my friend thought her mobile phone lost... More

An exciting outdoor experience with full gear. A break at Carlo's resort house with a treat of hot chocolate is thoughtful. Hope that we could be allowed to ride the snow mobile with higher speed.

I joined a snowmobile tour by the recommendation of my hotel. I found it very interesting and the scenic view during the snowmobiling tour was stunning. Carlos gave very clear and detailed instructions on how to control the snowmobile, so no fear at all. Also, with the well-maintained and compreshensive gear, you don't have to worry about anything but enjoy... More

People have raved here about Carlos, but I think we got him on a 'off' day. Everything seemed a bit of a hassle to him. The snowmobile trip itself was fun out to the cabin and back over the frozen lake, and through wood trails. Also, I was a bit surprised not to sign a disclaimer before taking out the... More

Had a great ride following Carlos. He let me do a couple of quick treks out to nearby islands and back, as some of the guests were a bit slower. He supplies the gear and instructions, and off you go. Had a great time. Highly recommended!
