Owner description: GuideGunnar`s vision is to show those who arrive Tromso 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 customers 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 Tromso, will see the experience of the nature as the main ingredient of the total experience.

After a few hours into the evening of Saturday 17th January, Gunnar suggested it was time to chase the lights as clouds were moving in fast. After approx 50 kms we pulled into a layby with a beautiful mountain backdrop and made our way on foot to the frozen lake. Gunnar made a fire for our comfort and within an... More

Myself and my girlfriend went to Tromsø for the sole purpose of catching a great Aurora. We had originally booked for the 6th of December, but it was completely overcast, so Gunnar called us to let us know the trip was moved to the next day. The weather forcast fo the 7th was not much better, but our guide was... More

So well organised and I question the experience of the previous reviewer. They might not have seen any lights but common sense should have kicked in when booking a northern lights tour in advance. I saw lights galore on the night of the 28th. They danced around the night skies and the negative vibes from the previous review are really... More

We took the Northern Lights tour on Dec 26 and came back with terrific memories and pictures. We got a first glimpse of the NL as soon as we left the town, and it seemed that we wouldn't get anything better. However, Gunnar drove us further into the hills and kept us entertained and warm around a bonfire until at... More

Gunnar was *brilliant* - we were all giving up, ready to bag the night, but Gunnar kept our spirits up - driving from Tromso, through parts of Finland to finally arriving at the Swedish border, and Shazam! there were the lights. Took nearly all of the night, blizzardey and blustery and the impossible happened. The explanations were great, I loved... More

The weather was perfect, the light activity was high and GuideGunnar was great. He knows his stuff and is able to help you take a great photo. I can imagine that it would be a totally different story if the weather was bad or there were no lights, but Gunnar, nor any guide, can control that!

We booked Guide Gunnar back in March for our trip in December due to his wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. When we got on the bus Gunnar was confused and had booked us on the wrong date. He told me I was wrong and we had to go through his emails until he agreed he was in the wrong. It... More

Gunnar is an incredibly interesting guide! He was responsive and helpful from the moment I contacted him ahead of our trip to Norway. He is also one of a few allowing babies/toddlers on his tour providing a car seat. He answered all questions even before they are asked and is incredibly aware of everyone's needs. It is clear that he... More

Only thanks to this man persistence we have finally admired this nature show! The weather was rubbish and we tried to hunt northern lights for hours and everybody in the bus were tired and weary but if it wasn't for Gunnar we probably would have come back that night without seeing them but we finally did! Thank you for a... More

My wife and I enjoyed seeing the northern light guided by Gunnar. After 5 minutes our from the car, my wife intended to skip seeing the light because of the cold and asked by Gunner the reason, she simply said "cold". then Gunnar gave her the suit and shoes, she joined back to the group waiting for the northern light...
