We recently spent three nights in Yellowknife. Our flight was delayed and we arrived late in the evening. Despite the late hour, Carlos went out of his way to make sure we got all our winter clothing and were well prepared for the activities ahead....More

We did an Aurora tour with this company last week. Unfortunately the weather was quite cloudy that night, so we didn't see anything. This is not the fault of the company, but we didn't think the price we paid (higher than other companies) matched the...More
