I chose this company for their professionalism and ease of booking. Plus I knew they would take better pictures than I could as you get a few afterwards. I just wanted to stand there and take it all in without fiddling around with camera settings and tripods. A bonus was the star gazing lesson. I had never seen so many... More

사실 편하고 따뜻한 곳에서 정착하며(?) 오로라를 보시고 싶다는 분들은 오로라 빌리지를 가셔야 할 것 같음. 하지만 몸은 좀 힘들어도 옐로나이프에 온 이상 반드시 멋진 오로라를 보시고 싶다면 NSA를 강추. 옐로나이프 동북쪽 인근으로 크고 작은 여러 호수들로 직접 운전해 나가서 시야 제한이나 광공해 없이 마음껏 오로라를 볼 수 있음. (오로라 빌리지는 시설이 훌륭하지만 옐로나이프 시내에서 비춰지는 불빛 - 이라고해봐야 별거 없지만... More

I joined a night for aurora viewing. They went 3 places for hunting aurora. Joe is a talkative & responsible person. He spoke & took pic all the times. You never feeling bored! Because of Joe, I can see aurora dancing on that night.

I booked a last minute trip to Yellowknife in late December 2014 and was able to fit in North Star at the last minute as well. They operate out of vans, 'chasing' the aurora and have a great deal of knowledge about the area. The price is very reasonable and they even give you several photos of yourself/your group for...

We had 2 nights with Joe. The 2nd night Joe really drove his van hunting for aurora. It was light snow at the beginning and some people cancelled on him because of the weather. But believe or not, he knew where the sky was going to be clear. He drove us more than an hour away outside the city. We... More

Joe and his team are very personable and they do their best to make it exciting, fun and memorable. Many other companies treat their customers like cattle, herding them onto buses, getting them to the same location every night and leaving them until their time is up. North star pick you up in some 4x4's and you go "Hunting" for... More

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
