We went on 2 snowmobile trips with Carlos. The first one was a day trip racing across the icy lakes and the second was after dark to see the aurora. Both were incredible. Carlos knows EVERYTHING so if you want to learn about history, wildlife or culture he is definitely your man.

Totally recommend! I was thankfully able to last minute book a trip for the next day. Carlos goes over safety gear inside and before you know it, you're on your own snowmobile! We (me driving, girlfriend passenger) start out on the open lake and get a feel for the power of the machine, practice turns and take in the scenery.... More

If you are planning a trip to Yellowknife (or even thinking about it) you need to seek out Carlos at Outdoor Adventures, you will NOT be disappointing. We booked a 2 night Northern Lights viewing, and were fortunate enough to see them on both nights. We snowmobiled down to a cottage that had multiple viewing areas, a wood burning fire... More

Had a great afternoon on the snowmobiles with the family (9 of us ) Carlos was lovely, gave us all the information we needed and was a chatty, happy host. We went out to a cozy lodge and had chocolate and tea to warm up, took some beautiful photos. Was a great way to immerse ourselves in the fabulous scenery.

This was the 2 hr tour. It was Carlos, myself, my fiancé, and a pair of older couple. Carlos was our guide and he was very friendly. We were noobs to snowmobiling, but we caught on real quick. The 1st part of the trip was across the frozen lake. "Land of the midnight sun" comes to mind when we were... More

We booked a three day / two night Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) viewing package right at the start of the season, and were fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights on both nights - a truly amazing experience which we will never forget - including driving the snow-mobiles to and from the viewing area. We could not be more appreciative... More

We had 5 days with Carlos, including 3 nights of auroras viewing with snowmobile, dog sled and ice fishing. He is very professional and you do not need to worry about a thing even when you have no idea on what you will need to do next. He always makes sure everyone is safe and comfortable. A very nice tour... More

Very good tour guide - friendly and helpful which made the tour very pleasant and lots of fun. Riding the snowmobiles just helped made the experience that much more enjoyable. We had great views of the aurora which was magical. Would definitely recommend to others.

Carlos organized a week of winter adventures for us that did not disappoint. We had an amazing time and I would highly recommend Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures. It is not just an outing with Carlos; it is an experience.
