We wanted to book lots of tours through this company. Unfortunately due to their lack of customer service and tour availability we only managed to get one in with Chris for Aurora viewing which was great. Other times they cancelled on us, were closed for "some reason" or didn't answer the phone. Disappointed.

North Star Adventures really put in the extra work to make sure every tour is memorable; from locating great views to taking excellent photos of guests and the Aurora! They are exceptionally knowledgable in the local history and geography, providing interesting commentary throughout the day/night. Thanks to Zoe, Duncan, Chris (as an Aussie would say, he's a top bloke) and... More

We spent three nights in Yellowknife . We took 2 Aurora hunting tours and a snowmobiling tour with NSA. The first night we were fortunate enough to see the Lights in all their glory! Joe was amazing at capturing these memories with his camera! The other night was cloudy, but they made it fun as we hunted for a break... More

Joe and his team are 100% dedicated to finding the best spots to see and chase the aurora. All of them have extensive knowledge about the land and the culture as they are either natives or have been Northern residents for most of their lives. Special thanks to Chris, Deneze, Duncan and Joe for entertaining us even on those cloudy... More

Although our first day of aurora hunting was a bit disappointing due to the weather, the snowmobile trip was absolutely amazing. Driving snowmobile, drinking hot chocolate, and watching the magnificent aurora, we couldn't think of any other entertaining activities than this!!!

A great aurora guide can color your aurora adventure much more. Zoe is the one. She is very zealous at guide work, no matter how cold outside, nothing can fade out her passion of leading visitors to enjoy the amazing aurora. And she is very good at taking photo. The photos she took really make me stunned. I promise, You... More

Good courteous people especially ping , prompt pick up from hotels and drop off. Highly recommended to rent winter gear from them saves lot of travelling hassles. Would recommend to carry USB drive for pictures they do give you some northern light pictures free and sell you the rest ! They are good try them
