Great place – this is our second trip this summer. We came back a second time with two of our kids, because the first time was so good. We’ve already told friends about your place…
Our guide was James – he is really good at what he does. Hilarious, engaging, committed to people having a great time.
Your staff overall is fantastic – they coordinate so many details to create an end-to-end fun day. Lunch on the river is elaborate, and such a nice part of the day. Couldn’t ask for more.
One area for improvement – we were part of the overflow group. Felt a little like second class citizens, mostly at the end of the day for the media show. Seems like Northern Outdoors doesn’t have a solid second setup for these presentations. The guides struggled for maybe a half an hour to find equipment that worked. Was a bit of a buzz kill – because when it is done well, the slide show is a fun end to the day. Its a good day to laugh about the adventures, and connect with new friends. And, the guides seemed bummed – they put a lot into making the images and the video, to make the day fun ( and maybe have photo sales targets?)
So – a relatively minor, but important point. Easily fixable by an organization so committed to details – as yours is!
Thanks for such a fun time!
