RE: Orcas & Grizzlies Wildlife Adventure Tour. Travelled July 22, 2017. From the Ferry we arrived at this Lodge on a little Island where everything shuts at 6.00pm, has 500ish inhabitants and looks like everything has seen better days from a 4* Boutique Hotel in the bustling City of Vancouver. Our Jaws dropped & we thought my god what have we done. Well how wrong can you be - No Flat Screen TV, No Power Shower, No USB Charging point, slow Wifi and deathly quiet. Again how wrong can you be, you don't realise how lovely peace and quiet is until you actually hear it (the sound of silence). Whilst part of the Lodge could do with a lick of paint and a bit of maintenance, I'm not sure if that would spoil the quirkiness of the place. We had 4 nights here and came away feeling totally refreshed and human again. Joel and Estelle as the management team are really cool, nothing was too much trouble, they sorted out a dickie shower head out for me in a couple of hours and we really looked forward to the breakfasts in the morning. We were booked on the Orca & Grizzlies tour through Midnight Sun Travel. The whole tour could not be faulted, supremely well organised from start to finish from Joel or Estelle running us to the Ferry or Dock, checking Taxi's for us & sorting out tickets. To Glide the Taxi Driver in Port McNeil, ferries, planes & buses all sorted and organised like a military operation. They even organised the Bears to come and see us as well as the whales. If anybody wants to reconnect with nature, quietness and learn some Culture then I can't recommend this highly enough. I left the Island a different person and couldn't fault one part of this trip. I want to thank everybody involved in this Adventure because you are all Bloody Brilliant!

Having seen Lisa's photos of Yukon and Alaska on Facebook, two of us are more than keen (or as Lisa would say "super" keen to do this trip, although not for a couple of years as have to save some loonies! Can you advise of itinerary, costs etc (aware that will change) for this tour? Once again huge thanks and hope rest of season is successsful for you. Regards Lorna"

The whole trip went very well and I was very lucky with both whale and bear sightings. I would also like to mention Rich and Emma as they made my stay at the lodge excellent and were always available to help with any of my travel or trip arrangements."

Canada West Safari (Legs 1, 2 and 3) – On September 10, 2017 Sergio wrote – Grazie to Midnight Sun! The scenery, off the beaten path attractions and funky accommodation was amazing (so nice to avoid the crowds) - the three weeks flew by. We had also the blessing of great weather combined with four others who are now our close friends. Kudos to Bob, our even-tempered adventure guide (remember: what happens in Banff stays in Banff!) Our only regret is that we did not have the time for Haida Gwaii, but Alex and I are coming back in 2019 … you'd better warn Bob!

RE Rocky Mountain Wildlife Tour, June 15-25/16 Hello Nina - As you might have heard from Amber, our Wildlife Tour was a great success: I'm still 'digesting' all the impressions we had during the trip: the landscape and scenery were so impressive that it still lingers on till now. We had good luck with the animals we saw, with the weather and the sequence in which we saw the different locations: it accumulated in superlatives. And you were right that the canoeing on Clearwater Lake was one of the 'highlight experiences'. But there were many of them, which were almost impossible to compare. I would recommend this tour to everyone, everything was well organized during the tour, and we had a lovely guide in Amber. Thanks for your information. Have a good summer season! Annemiek

Haida Gwaii Mini Safari Adventure Trip, travelled June 30, 2017. Dear David - Well the rest of my journey continues in England. I expect the experience of Haida Gwaii will remain a highlight of my travels for many years! Thank you for your part in that. My selfies on the beach were not very successful but....here they are anyway! If any of you come to Australia please let me know and perhaps we can catch up downunder. Cheers Suzanne

Haida Gwaii Mini-Safari Adventure Trip, travelled August 5, 2017. Hello Scott, My travels to Haida Gwaii were most memorable for the range of experiences, acquired knowledge about Haida history, art and culture and the people with whom we interacted during our journey. David was a wonderful guide--attentive, knowledgeable and professionally engaging (would you please extend my appreciation to him?). In all categories, I would rate this trip a 5 (excellent!). TY so much. Valerie.

Orcas and Grizzlies Wildlife Adventure Trip. My partner and I had the Grizzly Bears and Orcas holiday from 6 – 11 September 2016. I am just writing to say that we had a fantastic time and to thank you so much for arranging everything. We really enjoyed our stay at Alert Bay Lodge, Jen and Jack are truly amazing, and so kind and helpful, nothing was any trouble for them. All the arrangements worked really well, the whale and bear watching were completely awesome (not a word I use often or lightly!). We loved Vancouver Island and Alert Bay, and we’d love to be back there again one day. So, once again, our thanks for a truly memorable holiday. Best wishes + kind regards

I was surprised by the quality of the tour and how well-organized it was. I cannot express how blessed I felt I've been for having had a tour guide like Alex. He was not only amazingly accommodating and helpful, but also energetic, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. His attitude in making this tour an everlasting memory was admirable. I certainly learned a lot from him, in both how to camp and how to make delicious vegetarian meals! In one occasion, a family from Spain got stuck outside their vehicle, with the car keys left inside. Alex could quite professionally re-open the doors and give them the keys back. I will never forget the gratitude in the eyes of that family after they received their keys. I'm very thankful to you and Alex for this experience and I'm looking forward to the earliest available time to fly back west and take another adventurous tour with you guys. Best Regards,

Custom Trip for six, Yukon & Alaska, travelled for 4 weeks in August & September 2017. I have finally caught my breath and would like to let you know how everything went. Dawn was a treasure not only was she excellent at her job but she bent over backwards to make sure we enjoyed every minute of our trip.There were times when I am sure we tested her sanity by changing our minds every 2 seconds but nothing fazed her and with her lovely smile she organised whatever we wanted. Every morning our lovely Dawn had a list of things we would see on the day and what we couldperhaps do on the way with the time we had in the area and how long it would take. This made it so easy to decide what we would like to do and believe it or not after the first day she had worked out what we all liked and before we could shout "Gift Shop" we were there!!!! Nina she was a great ambassador for your company and made our whole holiday a relaxed and enjoyable three weeks of amazing Alaska and the Yukon and thank you for all the work you did on the itinerary it was amazing. The upgrades were terrific and I appreciated them and also the other girls were very suitably impressed especially Kennicott Lodge what a lovely place that is, so thanks for that. All other accommodation was fine didn’t have a problem anywhere, the cabins were great especially Denali which were in a great position so close to the park. The couple at the Red Eagle place were very nice and went to alot of trouble to make us feel welcome. So thanks again Nina hopefully we will be back again.
