Owner description: GuideGunnar`s vision is to show those who arrive Tromsø and the Arctic Norway, the beautiful nature and the maritime environment. 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.

Gunnar is a great guide, knows the area well. Had booked with him for 7th dec. However, due to bad weather and him travelling outside the city, the tour had to be "rearranged". So went with him on his mini van on the 8th. We started to go out of the city, this particular period was quite wet and cloudy,... More

We were in 3 tours the time we stayed in Tromso and Gunnas was, without a doubt, the most experienced of all. The day of our tour he started going to the coast but found out (through checking the skies, other guides and local contacts) that it was getting cloudy from the ocean, so we turned around and went to...

Me and my boyfriend spent a week in Norway and we saved Tromso and the Aurora chasing for the end. We booked Guide Gunnar for one night and he made our dream to see the Northern lights come true. Gunnar was very well-prepared, very thoughtful of our needs, he was constantly shouting out our camera settings to achieve maximum picture... More

It is expensive, cost more than big bus, but definitely value for money! Every details Gunnar has paid attention, plus his experience, his passion for hunting, his local knowledge... with a big of luck, you will see best of the best.

Went out 3 adults 17yr old and 9yr old on 8/11/14, pre booked after recommendations on here. Gunnar is knowledgeable, interesting, funny. More importantly, passionate about his country and wants to share. His connections and organisation skills make these trips. Whilst there's evidence of the commercial aspect and acknowledgment that this is his livelihood (advertising reflector bands if you're near... More

Gunnar is a friendly and well-prepared guide. He provided sufficient equipment and clothes for all the members. We were so lucky to see a stunning aurora show in Gunnar's tour. He really made our dream come true.

Went on the Northern Lights tour with Gunnar last night (30th October) and didn't have much hope of seeing them. We'd been out the night before into Finland and had no luck. Despite the snow storm in and around Tromso, Gunnar was in contact with other guides around the area and knew where to take us! We arrived after an... More

We travelled to Tromso in the middle of September, both to see the city and to experience the Northern Lights. We booked Guide Gunnar Hildonen for three evenings and nights of Aurora chasing. Gunnar's chases start at 6.30 pm, when it was still light. However, he used the time before darkness to show us some of the delights of the... More
