At the heart of North Star Adventures is our commitment to our Indigenous’s heritage. As a 100% Indigenous owned tour company, we take great pride in employing Indigenous peoples from the local communities. We are also happy to have wonderful staff from China, Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan add an international flavor to our North Star team. Together we always try our best to make sure your North Star experience is comfortable and memorable.
Our tours are just one link in a chain of respect, pride and professionalism between you, our service and our Indigenous heritage. When you choose one of our tours you are participating in our mission to help create employment opportunities for local Indigenous peoples. You are also helping us proudly promote and preserve our Indigenous heritage.
Why Choose Us?
First of all, we are from Yellowknife, we know Yellowknife, we know the history of Yellowknife. Many of our Indigenous guides can share personal stories about growing here. They know many of the fun, colourful characters of Yellowknife and they know all the special places to show you. For example our Joe the Aurora Hunter grew up on the famous Ragged Ass road in Old Town. Unfortunately, many tour companies are not from Yellowknife and not able to give you that genuine Yellowknife experience like we can.
As a 100% Indigenous owned tour company, we can offer you a genuine Indigenous experience. So, if you’re looking for a more personal tour experience with a smaller, locally owned, 100% Indigenous owned tour company, then North Star Adventures is for you!
