I was glad that Joe arranges photo opportunities; he's very careful and good at finding great backgrounds (in addition to choosing photos that have good aurora borealis in them.) I really... More

North Star Adventures is the best aurora hunting company in Yellowknife NT Canada. They found great viewing site even when it's cloudy and took great pictures for guests. Strongly recommend. Joe is the best.
