About Windigo

1996... the beginning of a great adventure!

Windigo’s history can be traced back as far as 1560!  In the mid-sixteenth century, an English explorer named Martin Frobisher began an expedition through the northern Canadian seas in search of the North West Passage.  Navigating his way to the Arctic, Martin left his namesake to one of the most important bays in the Arctic, Frobisher Bay.  Nearly four centuries later, Charles Frobisher, himself an adventurer and inspired by his ancestor’s feats, founded Windigo, a North American adventure tour operator.

Our team of passionate explorers has been running tours in North America since 1996, leading travelers through its grand open spaces, massive mountain peaks, dense forests, pristine rivers and endless deserts.

We have been guiding groups and traveling the continent for more than twenty years.   Our professional guides are always eager to share their love for the outdoors with fellow adventurers!
