We took two aurora hunting tours and the 2.5 hr snowmobiling tour with North Star Adventures. We also rented winter clothes for our party of four. NSA were very easy to work with in advance of the visit. They responded quickly to emails and were very helpful in helping us pre-plan our itinerary. The winter gear was exactly as described,...

The tour was amazing. They will not stay at one spot, but will go to several spots which they think the aurora will appear coz they want their clients to have the greatest chance to see the aurora. The atmosphere is great since the tour guide and staff always chat with us. Also, the staff are willing to help you... More

Very professional! Punctual, organised and reliable. Prices of tour packages is reasonable. For Aurora Hunting, Joe, the driver, is friendly and engaging! Tried his best to hunt the northern lights for which he did! :) Made all his passengers felt welcome and at ease. Snowmobile with the company was good! We rode through the woods and spent some time exploring... More

The tour was so good. I hd both of hunting tour and viewing tour, but hunting was better. Not so many people in a group, around 10 something?. And guide, Zoe, Taiwanese girl, was very kind. She tried her best to make people not bored.

The tour was amazing, it was not expensive and the hunting was fun, we drove to different places that could see the Aurora. The guide, Tzu-Yu and the driver were so experienced and helpful. They introduced and taught us how to take photos of the Aurora as well as preparing cookies and hot chocolate in such a cold weather. And... More

Did the Aurora Snowmobile Package and give the price of $200pp for 5 hours it was the best (cheapest) package to both see the Aurora and do snowmobiling (although at night). It is a small company but very accommodating and extremely pleasant people! It is local run and caps off a tour to the North!

Aurora Hunting Tour - We landed in the evening so joined the aurora hunting tour on our first night. The guide was quite quiet and didn't give us much explanation, which was... More

I seldom gave negative reviews but we were really disappointed with North Star Adventure (NSA). We truly expected more from NSA since were a huge group joining for two consecutive nite to hunts for Auroras. Mind you, Joe was not as friendly nor funny as mentioned by the reviews. Yes they answered our many questions before we paid them the... More

Management response:

It is always unfortunate to get one of these, even more so when the review is not warranted. This person/group took 2 Aurora Hunting tours and saw Aurora on both nights (one night we drove mainly kms as it was cloudy in Yellowknife). Upon reviewing all of their 40 photos, in every photo they had great big smiles, including the... More
