Bobbie treats you like family visiting from out of town. Great experience. Hot tea, cooked fish, great viewing spot and an education on their heritage. No photographer or big bus group - just a man and his family making you feel welcome. It’s warm in...More

If you are visiting Yellowknife and need to choose only one tour, this is it. Bobby will tell you all about fishing, trapping, drumming and Dene culture. A true privilege to talk with him and know more about his culture. We spent the best four...More

We really enjoy the view and the food prepared by Bobby the night we visited. The aurora's were also constantly visible all night because of the lovely location! The group was relatively small (25-30 pax) for a viewing tour so the entire thing was pretty...More

This is not a typical Aurora Viewing experience. The tour bus will take you to the closest site to the Dene Community, and you will hike about 15 minutes to the cabin. It's a very dark and close to nature hike. Once you reach to...More

we drive first in the van, than snowmobile, arrived at cabin, listen Dene's stories, prepare and grilled fresh fish, had enough option of drinks and snacks, practice drumming: so you have full experience and if it is not cloudy you see aurora.
