We thoroughly enjoyed our time with North Star Adventures, though we saw the lights on only one of two booked evening tours, which is rare but seeing the lights is never a guarantee. Joe answered every question we had during the time we were booking the tours (lights and snowmobiling) and answered and entertained us during the tours. He has... More

I visited Yellowknife for the second year in a row and booked our tours again with North Star Adventures. We booked the North Star Aurora Package and got a third night of Aurora hunting tour with a 10% "We're Happy to See You Back" discount. Joe (the owner, Aurora hunter, and primary guide) also threw in a complimentary North Star... More

We saw amazing Aurora both nights in different spots and scenery and it is an experience I will never forget. We went on a snowmobile excursion in the day... More

Did 2 tours. Aurora hunting and snowmobile. Aurora hunting was very cool. Large comfortable bus came in very handy. Shielded us from the cold weather and place to nap as the tour goes pretty late. Tour guides Chris and Zoey were very helpful and knowledge. They took professional photos of us which was nice because you need a real camera... More

My family had signed up for both the aurora trip and boat trip with North Star Adventures. The aurora trip went well - they were very punctual with the pickup from the hotel. We managed to see the aurora and Joe made sure everyone had a chance to get their picture taken. If you are fine with being part of... More

Great tour overall. We had our first night with Joe, he is very optimistic and knowledgeable. Explaining about the formations of Aurora and making jokes to keep the atmophere light before we finally 'hunted' down the aurora. You can see his passion in his work! The second night was with a different driver, we weren't as lucky as the first... More

We toured with the North Star Adventures on March, 2017. The staff was considerate and knowledgeable. We didn't see any lights on the first night due to the clouds. But on the second night, we were lucky to see the faint but heavenly lights. Three things set this company apart from others. First, the staff drives you to various places... More

My friend and I joined 2 tours with North Star Adventures on 28 Mar 17 - 2.5hrs Snowmobile and Aurora Hunting Tour. The snowmobile tour is fun and interesting.
