I will see to that they will go home, bringing something special with them. To succeed with this, we have chosen to work with quality before quantity, which again keeps us from organizing tours with too large groups. The foundation of this increment of quality, is the co-operation between several firms. 

 The benefit will be that the clients will get more out of the trip and the experience of the nature itself, while they also more easily will get in contact with the other guests. We who work with this, will also have more time for each individual guest. GuideGunnar`s aim is that our guests to Tromsø, will see the experience of the nature as the main ingredient of the total experience. GuideGunnar have the last five years run a "Theatre of Food" in a sami tent on the island Kvaløya, 35 km west of the city, but closed the kitchen in April 2012. A new base camp are building up on the island Ringvassøya, 40 km north of Tromsø, and here GG will have a B&B and a new kitchen with higher standard for better service. « less

Hi, my family and I went on two nights Aurora hunting with Guide Gunnar in March 2014. As we wanted to book in advance, we booked two nights in a row. The first night was absolutely clear and still but we saw only a glimpse of the lights. It was still a magical night however, because of our guide. We... More

We went on Gunnar's tour on 28th Mar. Unfortunately the weather and aurora activity did not cooperate. However, full credit for Gunnar for trying. Of the four tour companies that I tried, Gunnar provided the best overall service. He prepared a nice fire in a forest clearing and served some very tasty food and drinks. The service that he provided... More

We participated in Guide Gunnar's tour on 18 March 2014. Although the Aurora was not as active as we'd hoped, we were happy with our experience at a couple of different locations over quite a period of time.Like other reviews, Gunnar is professional and does go out of his way to make sure everyone is looked after, including the supply...

We were out on a night of heavy snow storm. Gunnar drove us very far towards the Finnish border, but it just kept snowing all the way. After around 3-hour drive, we drove back as Gunnar told us that the weather was so bad that there might be avalanche, plus there was no aurora activity anyway. So it's another 3-hour... More

Many Thanks Gunnar for a fantastic Northern Lights sight seeing tour. From start to finish you showed professionalism. Tour started off being picked up outside the Tromso Church situated on main high street. Mini bus is very comfortable and spacious. Your running commentary throughout the drive was great, very informative and sometimes funny. Having reached the viewing point, approx. 2... More

For the second consecutive year I went with friends to northern Norway for an adventure holiday - part of which was with Guide Gunnar. He is such a funny guy that you are glad you are with him even if you don't see the lights! He is incredibly thoughtful of his guests' needs: he knew we had to walk down... More

This is stye second year I have taken friends to Tromso and booked Gunnar to help us experience Norway. This year we went snow shoeing and ice fishing which was brilliant fun, well organised and resulted in a delicious lunch on the ice of what we had just caught. We also did a Northern Lights chase. There is no limit... More

What a thrill, trucking around the remote Norwegian-Finnish border at all hours in -18 cold! The chase was very exciting and the result was fantastic - surreal even! From the start we didn't know what to expect and what the night would look like but we just went with the flow and Gunnar was very friendly and jovial encouraging us... More

We had no idea what to expect but were thrilled with the outcome of our Northern lights trip. We have been on a couple more tours since arriving in Tromso but nothing compares to the competence,determination and enthusiasm of Gunnar to show us the lights.

My husband and I went on a Northern Light trip with Gunnar last week on a short break to Tromso. After a previous unsuccessful attempt to see the lights in Iceland, I appreciate to see these is not a guarantee and to give us the best chance I booked 3 different trips with different groups. I have to say, (not... More
