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 started planning for my trip to Norway about a year before I ended up booking it. There was always only one guide that I wanted to go with - Gunnar. And I am so glad that we did. Don't look any further - just book it - you won't regret. The whole process was easy. Simple booking process, fast... More

We booked a Northern lights trip with Guide Gunnar based on a friend and also trip advisor recommendations. None of us had ever seen the lights and it was a special trip for my Mum's 70th birthday. We also had my 6 year old daughter with us. I have to say that he lived up to expectations. His minivan was... More

After reading several reviews of where when and who to do a Northern Lights tour with, one place and name came up often....Tromso Norway, Guide Gunnar. Booking with Gunnar was very easy and following his blog I was able to see pictures of current outings.. I booked 3 nights because you do not know if you will be lucky to... More

I had a great night. We travelled quite a distance - approx 130km each way. The transport was comfortable with videos of what to expect. Gunnar was very professional and kept us fully informed as to what was happening. I guess we were lucky and saw a good display. Gunnar even had tripods to use if you didn't have one.... More

When you're planning to see the Northern Lights in Tromso, it's difficult to decide which hunting service to choose as there are so many of them. We decided based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and it was an excellent choice. Gunnar is passionate about Aurora, he must have seen it so many times, yet he still gets excited when... More

I will preface this by saying it's pretty clear that any review can't fail to be coloured by whether or not you see the Lights. Where you choose to go depends on so many different variables and can be really confusing. We chose a number of different geographic locations and environments to give ourselves the best chance, but even then... More

We’ve spent 3 full days with Gunnar (from Guide Gummar) mainly for the Aurora chasing. Gunnar is extremely professional providing the service on the level you could expect. His car is new and it is in perfect estate, bouts and clothes (for the –15 degrees) are also news and you have options on all the sizes. He has great videos... More

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
