I do not usually write reviews, but the experience I had with North Star Adventures was so memorable that I had to do these guys justice by sharing with everyone else how great they were. I went for their package which included 2 nights of aurora hunting as well as a 4 night stay at one of their partner hotels.... More

After reviewing the hotels and the period of seeing the Northern Light in Yellowknife, it does give me lots of ideas. Great!!

This is my second time here and to be honest, it was very very amazing! I spent 6 nights here with North Star Adventures and every single night, fortunately I saw Aurora Borealis because of the enthusiasm Joe. before we left the town, the sky was too much cloud and also 60% of raining. Joe took us to about 60km... More

Joe is a lovely guy - very personable. I would recommend using this company for aurora chasing as he drives to the best vantage points for aurora viewing. He looks for gaps in the clouds and tries to ensure your best chance at seeing the northern lights. We booked one night with North Star Adventures and one night with Aurora... More

I would highly recommend North Star Adventures. From the beginning they were easy to communicate with despite being half way across the globe, unlike other companies I enquired with. I’m glad I made the decision to go with North Star. Spent four freezing cold December nights hunting the lights with Joe and his team, plus the Dettah Ice Road Tour.... More
