Overview

North Star Adventures is designed to reinvigorate your life and to increase your awareness to the beauty and excitement of the natural world through human powered activity. It is our intention to give you a peak experience. Push you out of your comfort zone just a little (not to the panic zone) and give you the tools you need to succeed. You don’t have to climb big mountains or paddle dozens of miles in 20 knot winds. Everybody’s threshold and experience is different. North Star is designed to meet you where you are at physically and emotionally. We will set a course for success and help you to achieve those goals. Join one of our scheduled trips or contact us and we will design a private adventure for you, your family or friends. Scheduled trips include: Adventues in Art, Women's Programs, Outdoor Skills, Certifications, Community Connections and Wedding Adventues. North Star Adventures programs will exceed your expectations!

My wife and I went to the backcountry cooking demo hosted by Nancy in Unity. We learned a ton about leave no trace principles, strategies for getting the most out of your trip with appropriate gear, ingredients and execution of some delicious dishes!
