We went to Yellowknife 4 days 3 nights. We flew from Toronto to Yellowknife by Air Canada. The flights were late for about 1 hour, and my luggage was left at Calgary Airport when I arrived at Yellowknife. It took me about 1 hour to claim because there were only 2 staffs handling with more than 10 missing languages. I... More

Joe , our tour director, was able to find the best spot, away from city lights, clearest sky. The snowmobile tour was so much fun. Got to experience it!!! Especially, the staff were so wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. Since we were leaving the... More

Initially, we booked a night tour of aurora hunting. Our driver, Chris was very experienced but it was cloudy that night and hence we did not get to see any aurora. He then brought us to icy road where we got to take pictures. After going for a snowmobile tour the next day, our tour guide told us that the... More

They have the really dedicated staff and they are all working so hard to give you the wonderful experiences! I joined the aurora hunting with them for two nights, but we weren't so lucky on the first night. If you are with other companies then you would possible spend a night chatting or playing poker with other guests. But with... More

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.

After doing some research I choose North Star adventures from my aurora hunting. This was a bucket list trip for my Mom and I and North Star did not disappoint. There customer service is wonderful and their staff is friendly and professional. Zoe is a phenom with the camera and Duncan, Chris, Ping, Kathy, & Lee ensured everyone was safe... More
