Who We Are
We are the world's only floating wind and solar powered travel
agency. Floating on Houseboat 28 on Great Slave
Lake we are a full-service, IATA accredited travel agency. We
are completely off the grid which means we make our own electricity
- primarily using the sun and the wind to do so. There's no
one else like us out there!

We're a Small
Company with Big Muscles
We are a member of TPI - Travel Professionals International - one of
Canada's largest networks of independent travel agents. This
gives us preferred access to airlines & tour companies and get
you the best deals while allowing us
to keep our independence.
Website you will find information on our
great travel services,
exciting trips to Yellowknife and the Arctic,
photos of Yellowknife,
useful travel information,
weather forecast, and more.
YOU WILL NOT FIND
on-line flight and vacation bookings here. Why not?
Let's face it, there
are a lot of other companies that offer it and have much bigger
budgets than we do. They need big numbers to survive - and we
don't think of you as a number. As an independent agency every
client is an important client to us and we treat you that way.
Plus, when you have a problem just try to get a real live smart
person to help you out from a website. We're very good at what
we do and we enjoy doing it for you. Put us to work and see
What We Do
We handle just about every travel need you can think of but here are
some of our specialties.
Real, live, fast, friendly, knowledgeable service, every day of
the week, morning or night.
No one knows the North like we do. Northern adventure isn't
just what we sell, it's what we do. Even getting to the
houseboat requires a canoe for 6 months of the year. We
offer a much different perspective than someone in a cubicle in
southern Canada. If you want real adventures, call real
- Travel to &
from the North
Need to get here or get away from here? Our extensive
knowledge of the North, its airlines, services, and people make us
the best choice to ensure you have the best trip possible.
- Conference &
We handle arrangements for conferences, meetings, and groups.
Every detail is handled for you from negotiating your group a
preferred airline rate to organizing meeting room space.
- Worldwide Air
What do you get when you combine an extensive background in the
airline industry with a fascination of airplanes, airlines, and
computers? Okay, a bit of a nerd, but one who can figure out
the most complicated itineraries to just about anywhere on the
planet. If your plans involve multiple stops or far away
places we can outsmart and probably out-price the best on-line
sites. Not only do we have access to thousands of fares
(including ones not available on-line) and the world's most
advanced computer reservation system, you can actually call us and
talk to us.
Frustrated by being told there are no seats available to and from
Yellowknife? Our knowledge of the ins and outs of
reservation systems gives us an advantage you can't even get by
calling Aeroplan directly. Many of our clients have been
told there are no seats and yet we have been able to find them.
Before you spend hours on the phone in frustration give us a shout
- we handle the rest.
Like most Northerners we love it up here but we love to travel
too! Every year we travel tens of thousands of kilometres
for work and fun so we have extensive first-hand knowledge of many
