Experience amazing Aurora with Yellowknife’s BEST Aurora Hunting tour company, North Star Adventures! Yellowknife is the best place in the world to see Aurora and we’re from Yellowknife, we know Aurora, we’ve been making Aurora dreams come true since 2007!
Join our Indigenous driver and guide, Joe Buffalo Child and his team as they take you on a wonderful and personal Aurora viewing experience. He is from here, he knows all the best places to find Aurora. He will tell you stories about Yellowknife, his Indigenous culture, Aurora and the special reason why he named the tour “Aurora Hunting”. Also enjoy his Indigenous drum music as you hunt for Aurora.
Each night you go out with us, you have a 98% chance to see Aurora! We take you out and “hunt” for the Aurora. When we find Aurora we’ll park, view the Aurora, take photos and talk about what Aurora is, identify stars, the Milky Way, see shooting stars (make a wish!) and maybe see wildlife while driving from place to place! We have seen muskrat, rabbit, porcupine, beaver, wolverine, fox, lynx, wolf, bear, moose and even buffalo on our Aurora Hunting tours!
Each night we don’t know where we are going, it all depends on Aurora, the weather and other tour companies. We define Aurora Hunting as “nothing but wilderness, wildlife and Aurora“. One thing that we do know is that we always try our best every night to show you amazing Aurora.
Enjoy a comfortable ride in our newer 26-passenger tour bus as we hunt for Aurora. We also have comfortable camping chairs for you to sit on but some guests like to lay down on the frozen ice and look up and enjoy the stars and watch the Aurora dance overhead! Also enjoy our delicious Canadian Maple cookies and yummy hot chocolate!
Mother Nature is boss, so some nights the weather may not be good and we may not see Aurora. However, we will try our best to find her for you since we are the best aurora hunter!
