In addition to sharing a meal with Joe in Fort Providence and being thoroughly entertained, Joe took us for a tour in his boat on the Great Slave Lake. He pointed out the points of interest and toured us past the boat houses. Really enjoyed the tour!

Joe is a knowledgeable and entertaining guide who managed to show us a charming display of the lights despite what seemed to be a cloudy night. As someone who was born and brought up in Yellowknife he has a deeper understanding and sense of things which makes him a top choice for anyone visiting the beautiful place. We saw the Auroras for 2 full hours and Joe took wonderful pictures of us which we will cherish for life. Trust me and blindly go for Joe!

Visited YN for 2 nights primarily for aurora. Lucky to connect with Joe, the son of soil who runs north star adventures and knows the aurora better than any one else . Even on a cloudy day we chased the aurora and got it in full glory. Next day we did the ice road trip which was excellent. Joe is not only a tour operator and guide but a great conversationalist . I highly recommend him for YN experience

I had an amazing time chasing the aurora with Joe. He was the ultimate expert, and also just an all-around fun person to hang with while cruising around the north in search of the aurora. And thanks to Joe, we found it! Highly recommend!
