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.

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

We had a Northern Lights chase with Gunnar in October 2014. Gunnar is exceptionally well organised all the way from booking to the actual day. He has a very well equipped and luxurious van with tripods, snow suits and the like. On the day itself, there was considerable cloud cover and Gunnar's knowledge really came into play as he drove...

My 15 year old son and I booked 2 nights with Gunnar on a recent trip to Tromso and I highly recommend his service. We were fortunate on both nights to see the lights and on 1 of the nights I think this was due to Gunnar's local knowledge as the activity was low but he took us to a... More

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
