I have tried for weeks by calling both numbers on the website and sending emails. Emails are never answered and whoever answers the phone does not seem to speak English - or in fact, speak at all. I am heading to Yellowknife anyway for several days and maybe something better will come if this - otherwise I will be aurora... 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

I reviewed North Star Adventures last year - mentioning that if you REALLY WANT TO SEE THE AURORA, choose this tour. Unlike other options in Yellowknife, where you visit one facility and hope the clouds clear above you, the tour guide drives you around the countryside - looking for places with clear skies and active aurora. WE SAW THE AURORA... More

I have joined different Aurora tours in Finland and Norway before, but North Star Adventures is the best tour I have experienced so far. Joe is very passionate about aurora hunt, I were quite lucky to see aurora in the first spot that he took us and stayed there till 1am until the aurora diminished. When Joe started driving again,...

Staying in Yellowknife was truly a great experience for me who come all the way from Hong Kong. Although the days we're there were pretty much cloudy but Joe was very professional, he made his biggest effort to drove to different destinations to hunt for the Aurora. The aurora there was just amazing, and the best thing of this trip... More
