          A magical, "out of this world" experience
          This was a magical experience and not just because we earned the "Aurora Lights Snob" award (the lights danced to their best on our tour). Tracy organised a truly wonderful tour; she was welcoming, friendly and enthusiastic to share her heritage and magical home with us. The warm and cosy cottage was a perfect retreat from the cold, where she cooked up a storm. However, the main highlight was the beautiful outdoors area, where we witnessed the amazing lights. What an "out of this world" experience. There were comfortable chairs to lounge in and immerse ourselves in the sky, lights and stars. She also provided fur coats to keep us extra warm, so we could lie in the snow to watch the light spectacle. We could not recommend this experience with Tracy more highly.

          Experience of a Life time
          Tracy was an incredible host. She made an effort to get to know us and make us comfortable. She cooked an excellent meal for us and took photographs and was easy going and give us local historians advice which we found extremely useful. .The cabin itself is situated in an excellent location to watch the Aurora.It was comfortable ,warm and Cozy as indicated in the tour title. We as a family enjoyed it and had wonderful viewing. We highly recommend the tour for a unique personal experience.

          A great tour to the cabin
          We did three aurora tours during our stay in Yellowknife, and hand on heart this one was by far the best. While the other two tours had been a drive around-aurora chase, this was located at a cabin. The advantages of the cabin were it was a lot more warm and comfortable, easier to chat with the rest of the group, had a washroom, and you had the choice of chilling out in the cabin or sitting outside in the snow under the heavens. As a photographer this allowed me to set up gear and evaluate shooting spots should the aurora happen. Tracy and Derrick were lovely and knowledgeable hosts, somehow managing to work the room, keep an eye on the skies, entertain us with stories, all whilst cooking bannock and chowder! My wife and I stood outside the cabin after supper discussing that regardless of the aurora turning up or not, that this had been the best tour on our visit to Yellowknife.

          Best Aurora Experience!
          My mom and I were in Yellowknife for five nights, and did four different tours. The Bucket List tour was by far the best experience we had! Tracy is an amazing host. She made everything comfortable and easy, from pickup at our Airbnb in a nice van to her cozy cabin in the woods. The tour is limited to less than 20 guests, which is great. Plenty of room for everyone in the cabin, which is kept nice and warm while you wait for Aurora to come out. Once she does come out, the viewing location is excellent! It's an easy 20-minute drive from Yellowknife, but there is no light pollution. The homemade soup and bannock were wonderful, but what we loved the most was Tracy's commitment to seeing Aurora. Unlike other tour operators, if there is hope of seeing the lights, Tracy will keep the tour going. I highly recommend any of Tracy's tours, but especially the Aurora tour!

          Great family aurora viewing tour
          This is a MUST booked aurora viewing tour. Tracy's hospitality was second to none. The cabin was warm & cozy, the bannock & fish soup were excellent experience, and transportation was comfortable. Additionally, she was caring and made sure that every family and group had opportunity to take photos with the aurora borealis. We will definitely booked the tour again if we return to Yellowknife.

          Clouds! But a wonderful night
          Tracy is great! Picked up on time, easy 10-15 min ride to cabin while she let us know what to expect. Enjoyed relaxing around tables inside the cabin while she cooked delicious bannock chowder (so good) and fresh bread. She talked about life in Yellowknife and all of her experiences there while we waited for the clouds to clear. Relaxed around the fire with s’mores until finally it was time to go home. No aurora because of the clouds but a lovely evening.

          Fabulous experience! A Colorado shout out to Tracy. You are the Best!
          Awesome! Tracy went above and beyond to ensure the needs of the customers were taken care of: from clothing, to food, to heat, to staying longer at the cabin to allow us to continue taking pictures of the Northern Lights. Cozy Cabin tours exceeded our expectations. Cozy Cabin Tours is a must in Yellowknife, Canada!

          Beautiful Aurora Viewing With A Warm Cabin Nearby
          We had a great time with Tracy and Terry. Their operation is well organized, and the cabin is so warm and comfortable. The viewing site is great too, with lots of open sky just steps from the cozy cabin. They did a great job pointing out Aurora when it was faint, and taking great pictures when it was brighter. It was everything we were hoping for when booking our trip, and I'd recommend it to anyone

          Amazing experience!
          Right from pick up to drop off this tour was top notch! Very professionally run and so amazing to experience. Tracy and Derrick truly have a passion for sharing the love of their home and community. So many stories and experiences shared amongst the group Tracy includes all participants and really prides herself in allowing everyone to engage. I can’t say enough about this tour!!!! And on top you get an amazing light meal , so delicious. Definitely the highlight of our trip and we will be back ❤️. Thank you Tracy and Derrick.

          Wonderful Aurora Experience
          Our experience from start to finish was wonderful! The views of the Aurora Borealis were wonderful! We were able to get some terrific photos! The cozy cabin, aptly named, was a delightful place to warm up throughout the evening viewing. Tracey offers delicious chowder and Bannock and is very informative!

          Fabulous activity — highly recommend!
          The tour was wonderful! Tracy knows how to make a very cold evening (-20 degrees C or lower) warm and comfortable in the cabin as we go indoors and outdoors enjoying the amazing Aurora Borealis when it shows. And we had a lucky night with multiple views! Lots of stories, hot food, and making new friends in a cozy cabin is a fabulous way to spend an evening. I highly recommend this activity with Bucket List Tours.

          Awesome experience! Although it was unlucky that we did not see the aurora, Tracy, and the driver and the photographer were all so friendly and warm-hearted that made our experience unforgettable. Tracy prepared indigenous food for us and shared us with a bunch of fun stories. I would definitely recommend my friends around me to try this tour if they are going to Yellowknife someday!

        You get more than you expect (and expect the unexpected) with Tracie's bucket list city tour. This is an insider's tour of Yellowknife and is informative, at times quirky and unique just like the Yellowknife community. Tracie tailors the trip to your interests and shows you the sights of the city the way a friend would. Highlights could include: the Yellowknife's desert, the legislature, the Prince of Wales Community Centre, the best views of the city, a short seminar on diamond mining, "ykea" and a discussion of bush pilots, along with Ragged Ass Road, new Yellowknife and views of the brightly coloured floating houses that adorn the community. I counted at least 3 informal northern museum stops. The trip was fun, informative and unforgettable. Thanks Tracie!

        There is no better way to see Yellowknife and the Aurora Borealis. Tracy used to manage the Visitor Center, and her local knowledge and connections are unparalleled. She led our group on a fascinating walking tour of old Yellowknife and later hosted us all at her charming "cabin" where we had unobstructed views of the Aurora after sharing her delicious seafood stew!

        Did the city tour with a small corporate group. I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from a city tour in a smaller community but I’m so glad we did it. I came away with a greater appreciation for the city, it’s pioneers and current residents. I learned so much but it was done in a casual and engaging manner. Tracy is an absolute treasure!

        We booked a cabin tour with Tracey. It was awesome. The cabin was cozy and full of cool teapots and traditional clothing that you could wear and touch. She served us this delicious fish chowder and bannock that she baked in front of us. It was unfortunately very cloud and lady aurora didn’t grace us with her presence, but Tracey lit a bonfire and of course that means we had s’mores. We ended off meeting up with her the next day and going on her city tour. She had so much great and was so easy to talk to. I got along so well with her that I joined her tour the next day as well. You would not be disappointed if you take any of her tours, she’s a genuine nice person who loves what she does

        This is the most complete City Tour ! Tracy includes all the highlights in Old Town, New Town, Buffalo airlines, ice highway, plane in the trees, info on the diamond mines, restaurants, shops and shares her extensive knowledge in a very personal, sincere style. She provided detailed history of all of the Northwest Territories and included a visit to the Legislative Assembly. This is more than a tour. Tracy cares that visitors have a wonderful experience in Yellowknife. We also took her COZY CABIN Aurora viewing tour! The top aurora tour of all that we took.

        Tracy gave us a great tour of Yellowknife this past September. She showed us the interesting parts of town and some of its colourful inhabitants with lots of stories. Of course, we did see the regular tourist 'sights' as well. Tracy was very informative and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would recommend Bucket List Tours.

        I was lucky enough to take two tours with Tracy during my stay in Yellowknife. The tour of the city was thoughtful, informative, and covered a lot of ground. Tracy’s passion and love for the culture of Northwest Territories is apparent. You won’t regret this tour. Also visit her at the cozy cabin for a unique nighttime experience under the stars! I had the best Aurora viewing of my entire stay here!

        I hadn't known Yellowknife had a lot of great spots until I joined this tour. Tour guide Tracy is really kind and generous, and of course familiar with Yellowknife. I could visit many valuable local places. If you don't have any special list to spend in Yellowknife, I strongly recommend you to join this tour!!

        オーロラと言えばイエローナイフ。イエローナイフと言えばオーロラ…。きっとお昼間に何をすれば良いかわからない人も多いはず。友人からは、定番の犬ぞりを勧められましたが、せっかくであれば街を知りたいと思い、ローカルガイドであるTracyさんに前日のオーロラツアーに引き続き、ガイドをお願いしました。これが予想外に大当たり!今だからこそ見られる美しい景色にたくさん出会え、地元の人たちの暮らしを垣間見ることができ、とても充実した時間になりました。特にアイスロード!こんなにエキサイティングな場所があるなんて!Tracyさんは英語でガイドされますが、聞きやすい英語ですし、お人柄もすごく素敵な方なので、日本人の方にもおすすめです!
        リクエストにも答えてくださいますよ!!

        Thank you very much, Tracy. I'm looking forward to seeing you again!!!
