“Fun Nighttime Snowmobiling”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My mom and I stayed at the Blue Raven Bed & Breakfast, which is in walking distance, but it was quite cold out and we were glad Carlos picked us up. After a quick crash course (figuratively speaking) on snowmobiling, we both rode on one snowmobile out on frozen Great Slave Lake. Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate that night and we saw no aurora, but the cabin is a nice destination - warm, lots of seating inside and out, Carlos made DELICIOUS buffalo meatballs (killed by him) and served hot tea/chocolate.

“Great experience, highly recommended.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We spent a great time snowmobiling on the lake near Yellowknife, with Carlos from Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures. We were collected from our hotel, supplied with all the cold weather gear needed, then given a quick lesson on how to operate the snowmobiles (which is very easy). After that we took off for a 10 km run through the fresh snow on the frozen lake, cruising in and out of small bays along the shoreline.

After a stop at their lakeside cabin for a hot chocolate in front of the fire and a chat with Carlos, we swapped drivers for a while and then headed back to Yellowknife. We all really enjoyed the experience, and would love to return sometime and do it again.

“Snowmobiling on Great Slave Lake”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

A great morning snowmobile ride on the frozen expanses of Great Slave Lake. Very, very cold, but with warm clothing and gear all supplied, we were all completely comfortable. Thanks to Carlos and his staff! We will definitely book through his company again.

“Awesome Snow Mobile Afternoon”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I totally recommend touring with this group - we had an absolutely fabulous afternoon out on the frozen lake, across the famous ice highway up to a fabulous wood fire at the cabin and then home through the woods. Fantastic - thanks.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I booked a four day, three night tour through Carlos (Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures) My return airfare, accomodations, extremely warm winter clothing and adventures were all included in the package! Between snowmobiling to his beautiful cabin, dog sledding with Grant Beck, driving on the ice roads, getting a tour of the city and history behind it and then viewing the amaaaazing Northern Lights, I couldn't have asked for a better company to go with. Carlos is so passionate and you can tell he obviously loves what he does. Best stories, best food, and best memories with Outdoor Adventures!
