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...

I really enjoyed my time with Gunnar, he is a unique character full of life and love for the aurora borealis. He was so enthusiastic about getting out there and capturing the moment. He's been chasing them his entire life and yet still has a passion for it. So rare to see a guide so happy and so eager to... More

We saw the lights on a pre-Christmas tour and there were parts of it that were good (hot drinks, snow suits, snacks if you wanted them, a T-shirt advertising his company) but my friend and I found Guide Gunnar himself disagreeable. A girl turned up a few minutes late on the tour. Not only was he rude to her but... More

Easy to book, easy to find his truck, easy to get to see the Northern Lights. This is how Guide Gunnar worked for me and my gal in Oct 2014. He takes great care for everybody in his minivan, and has the knowledge to get one to see his dream come true - observing the northern lights. Guide Gunnar knows... More

My partner Chris and I went out with Guide Gunnar on 10th april during a fantastic trip to Tromsø and were treated to a magical evening watching the Northern Lights across the border in Finland! We were in Tromsø fairly late in the season and, as we drove east through a never ending blizzard, we didn't hold out much hope... More

Gunnar is a professional guide, he provided a comfortable van for a long drive and showed us the knowledge of northern light before getting the destination. We were amazed by the dancing light and screamed while every time it appeared! What a wonderful experience! We saw his passion of chasing light, that's why he could show us the best view... More

On my first day in tromso, I joined guidegunnar aurora tour. His van is big and spacious enough to accommodate about 12 of us. During the journey he will play a few videos for us to watch and learn more about the northern lights. And he also promote us some of the activities he have throughout the year. Very knowledgeable...

We went to Tromso with zero expectation to view the northern light, since we went there after Easter, but we booked a trip with GuideGunnar anyway. We are glad we did, we got to experience it. GuideGunnar treated us more than just paying customers, he regarded us as friends to share his passion. He answered every question with patience and... More

I have reserved three nights of my tour in Norway hoping to see the northern lights and in all the three nights I saw them. For this success, I am sure, I have to thank Gunnar, a nice and professional guide.

I realised that the chances of seeing the aurora were 50:50, 50% depends on the skill of the guide and 50% depends on the weather! However we were lucky and saw the sky full of lights. We had a fire on the beach, we had only driven for an hour or so, I had a snowsuit and boots on loan... More

I started looking up tours for my Norway trip way back in October '14, found Gunnar and he's been very helpful and knowledgeable about the Northern Lights. He answers queries in a matter of fact tone. For those who are interested in seeing the NL you have to bare on mind all the factors that may affect the result of... More
