We spent 3 nights in Yellowknife. We did 2 nights aurora hunting with North Star Adventures. Our first night we saw nothing but went to a cool spot on the lake for photos on the ice instead. Our second night was again very cloudy but we managed to find a spot where we saw an awesome aurora dancing. This company... More

雖然3天的極光只看到一晚,但已留下美麗深刻的印象!而且我們遇到一位很棒的攝影師Zoe, 為我們留下很多棒的照片,人超nice和有趣,讓我們的行程變得更有趣!還有driver Chris 也很nice。真心推薦來North Star! Even we only saw one night Aurora, but we got wonderful experience! Also, we met pretty nice photographer-Zoe, she took a lot of great photos for us and make our Aurora night tour more fun! And Chris was nice and friendly. I sincere recommend North Star Aurora hunting tour! Hope come back next time!

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

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
