GuideGunnar`s vision is to show those who arrive Tromso and the Arctic Norway, the beautiful nature and the maritime environment. GuideGunnar`s aim is that my guests to Tromso, will see the experience of the nature as the main ingredient of the total experience. I have been a guide out in the wilderness since 1997, and I have run Aurora tours in Tromso since 2006, but in these days I am working on an another direction...

On the positive side: nice heated minivan, even with tv screens to see an aurora dvd. On the negative side: everything else. This evening aurora activity was 4/10 (active), cloudy skies in Tromso. So Gunner headed up north to find a clear sky. He stopped on the road and it was an aurora, but unfortunately he stopped right by a... More

We had booked this tour before leaving England as we had read the excellent reviews. Like many others we experienced the bad storms on Mon 9th Feb which meant that our plane had not been able to land in Tromso and we were therefore a day late arriving. So we were relieved when Gunnar emailed us to say that the... More

Dear Christine. I am sorry to read that you felt so badly by joining my tour, but this is what a Aurora Chase are! Yes, we are going far if we think the weather are better, and why should we cancel the tour when we found clear sky and saw some of the Northern lights..? We couldn`t really understand why... More

Thanks for a wonderful experience. Our son will talk about this for years to come. We learned so much about the area on our drive over. Too bad the weather was so horrible, but here in Norway, you have to learn to just plow through the weather or else you'll be stuck inside forever. Hopefully the weather will be better... More

We were trying to book with gunnar for the past one month but they were fully booked on the dates we had planned earlier. We had a bad start to our trip due to the storm Ole, our flights were cancelled and we were wondering if we would ever see the aurora as the entire week's forecast seemed to be... More

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!
