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

We did two aurora tours and an ice fishing tour whilst in yellowknife and loved every second of it! Joe is the friendliest, most knowledgable tour guide with endless interesting stories, and a genuine passion for what he does. He even gave us info on other things to do in Yellowknife that were not part of the tours. Would 100%... More

My husband and I visited Yellowknife in March of 2015 with a goal of seeing the aurora and leaving with great memories and great photographs! North Start Adventures, and Joe, made sure that both of these things happened. We were in Yellowknife for three nights, and participated in two nights of the Aurora Hunting Tour. Joe is passionate about the... More

Joe absolutely knows what he's doing, unlike some other tour guides. I like this tour because Joe is so passionate about aurora. I didn't notice Joe's tripod was put right next to me until he said "oh my god, oh my god, see that purple, see that pink, oh my god, that's so gorgeous, I can't believe that...". I love... More

I went out two out of my three evenings in Yellowknife with North Star. Joe is knowledgable, friendly, engaged and always willing to help you figure out your camera settings to ensure you get the best aurora photos possible. I think this kind of experience is way better than being in a large group in one spot. If the aurora... More

Joe, you have set up the perfect aurora adventure for tourists. Your vast knowledge in the local area (and the aurora particularly) helps to make the experience a great one. What sets you apart from the other aurora adventure companies is your extremely personable nature and the fact that your groups are small enough to ensure everyone is given attention.... More

We did the ice road tour which was great fun, but of course the aurora tour was truly fantastic . Joe knows where to go to find the aurora and goes out if his way to help... More

I am so glad that I decided to use North Star Adventures as my tour company – the service from the beginning to the end was impeccable. My Flight from Calgary to Yellowknife had to turn back due to a technical problem and I was delayed a few hours and thus missed the city tour but they graciously swapped it... More
