â€śUnbelievable Pike Fishing–Chance of a Lifetimeâ€ť
A friend and myself had two days to spend in Yellowknife coming home from a hunting adventure in August, and booked Carlos with Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures to take us on two 8 hour fishing trips. They turned out to be unbelievable. He showed us amazing scenery, and gave us the opportunity and appropriate gear to catch the pike of a lifetime.
We chose the 2 hour snowmobile trip on great slave lake and the experience was A grade from start to finish. Friendly pick up from our hotel. Heaps of new warm clothes provided. Snowmobiles ready to go and fast ( we did 60 mph/ 100kph). Great hot chocolate stop in very nice lodge with amazing views and fire. lots of photo stops. Just realty well done.
â€śSee the north, up close!â€ť
We booked a four hour boat trip with Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures that was billed as a sightseeing, bird-watching tour around the Northern Arm of Great Slave Lake. It was all of that! Our tour guide, Carlos, showed us islands and eagles, regaled us with stories about Yellowknife and its history and personalities, the mining industry, and to top it off he cooked us a wonderful shore lunch!
â€śExcellent, fantastic and trustworthyâ€ť
Anyone considering a trip to Yellowknife I am highly recommending this organization: Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures. Carlos, the owner and the guide is excellent. Filled with interesting stories, knowledge of the surrounding environment, history and legends about Yellowknife and aurora borealis.
I took the Aurora borealis viewing tour, two nights by snowmobiles to the cabin to watch the aurora, city tour, ice road tour and gallery tour during the day.
I was lucky, get to see the aurora all three nights. Snowmobiles was excellent, Carlos supply you with all the necessary equipment and clothing you will need for the trip. Really get to experience true feeling of the Canadian north with Carlos as he keeps his groups nice and small and his cabin provides very warm and welcomed atmosphere.
â€śFantastic experience, wonderful guideâ€ť
Wonderful afternoon on the lake, Carlos was an entertaining, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, our group had no experience of fishing before, but he made us feel like experts by the end of the day. Highly recommended!
