Joe leads this company and the various tours offered. He is a very personable individual and makes everyone feel comfortable from the get-go. We did an ice-fishing tour by day and in the evening took an Aurora tour. Being native to the area, his knowledge was extensive and was freely offered. He also plays cameraman on the tours and takes... More

Been in TA for quite sometime but never written a comment. I must give a huge compliment to North Star, Joe who had perfectly done his role. Did not able to see aurora that night, but the tour itself gave me a great experience. Called in at noon and got reservation done, picked me up on time at 9.15pm. He... More

This is the best tour in Yellowknife if you are looking for a someone to bring you around, whether is it to see the aurora or just sightseeing around Yellowknife. Joe, the tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable and professional and he treats every customer just like his friend. He makes an effort to get to know everyone personally during the... More

This was the most amazing tour i have ever been with. I was never a fan of joining tours (big or small) until i was with North Star. Unlike many tour companies, North Star Adventures provides the most exceptional services to its customers. I really liked the fact they make every attempt to try and to make us feel comfortable...

Even if yellowknife is the aurora capital of the world, you need a good guide to take you to places for the perfect view and perfect shot! Northstar adventures it is!Joe is extremely knowledgeable,friendly and humorous. It was a truly enjoyable journey and we would definitely come again when we are richer (and yes it shall be aug/sept) :D

Joe is really great and very enthusiastic about the aurora creating excitement for everyone. He knows great spots to take you and doesn't just stay in one spot. They keep the vans running so you can warm up if you need to and they serve hot chocolate and biscuits at around midnight. He takes photos of you with his amazing... More

I could not see the Aurora with Joe, but I would still recommend the North Star to you. You all know seeing Aurora is ultimately controlled by the God, by the weather. We just picked the bad timing...but then as you have looked up their website, where Joe put his list of best viewing time of the year, we are... More

I had my first Aurora travel with North Star Adventure for 3 consecutive nights in late Sep and early Oct. I gotta say, Joe and his team were nice, helpful and very resourceful for all time. Joe is very professional and passionate about aurora. The hunting is never easy. Yet, Joe always makes his best effort to bring us to... More

During our stay at Yellowknife for three nights, it was really cloudy, so we decided to change our plan to hunt for the aurora instead of staying at one spot. Really appreciated Joe for accepting our last minute request to join the trip and quickly response to us. Joe is very professional and expertise in hunting for aurora even in... More
