"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." [John Muir, John of the Mountains]

Discovering the lush beauty of Canada is best done by putting your hands right on it and feeling it. Living in and experiencing the Canadian Outdoors means taking pride in knowing and understanding the geological and geographical history as well as its, and our, impact on the future of this unique place on earth. Living and working in Canada for many years as a tour guide all the way from Anchorage (Alaska) to Vancouver (British Columbia) gave me a profound perspective on how things should be done right on tours. This led to starting Arctic Range Adventure and shaping a successful tourism operation with a clear vision on safety, sustainability and service.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"During a week-long dog sledding expeditions, I was standing on a frozen lake in the absolute backcountry of Yukon around midnight. While enjoying the crisp clear night sky I watched the colorful display of dancing Northern Lights above me. Suddenly there was a swich-like sound which matched the movements of the dancing Northern Lights. I can attest, you can hear the Northern Lights."

Felix put together the vacation of a lifetime. Everyone we came in contact with was incredibly professional and friendly. Tom, Tifiin and Magda were fantastic and super helpful with getting us around and seeing the northern lights. Pierre gave us probably our favorite experience with the dog sledding. Best day ever! Mark was extremely helpful and informative on our snow mobile adventure.
I can't wait to see the next vacation adventure that Kimkim puts together for us.
Thanks again!
