GuideGunnar`s vision is to show those who arrive Tromso and 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 was lucky enough to spend the evening with Gunnar as he drove us around trying to find the lights. The weather was really cloudy, but Gunnar was confident and up to date on all the latest information one could possibly get their hands on to find the lights. After driving South for a good bit, we finally saw some... More

You'll no-doubt see that I've previously been on one of Guide Gunnar's tours in the past (I think TA links to it on this review), and we came back to Tromsø again this year and immediately booked in. Owing to a situation which I'm not going to publish the details of, unfortunately we were not able to join our booked... More

Gunnar lived up to his reputation. He picked us up on time , as we left a cloudy Tromso. Gunaar kept in constant contact with his weather watchers by mobile phone, using this information and his knowledge we drove southwards via Bardufoss and he found a spot where we could watch the Northern Lights display. What a sight just what... More

We did 3 chases, with 3 different companies. GuideGunnar was the first. Although he sure knows whats he´s doing and was committed in finding the northern lights, we weren´t lucky that night and we could only see the lights using the camera. The tour was nice, but in comparison to the other two that we tried, I believe that this... More

We had a fantastic night out chasing the lights with Gunnar. Once we arrived at our destination, he was a gracious host providing warm clothings, tea & sweets (we're hooked on lefse now!). A campfire was setup to keep us warm and made for a fantastic outdoor environment. It started to get cloudy where we were, so Gunnar drove a... More

I have booked my trip to visit Tromso area fjords with Gunnar not knowing what to expect. When we met in front of the Emma's Dream kitchen restaurant I felt immediately to be in good hands. Gunnar is a Norwegian, who knows all the area and all the attractions and activities there. With great sense of humor, openness and shear... More

I had a day tour to the Gorsa Bridge, it was the best and high light of my trip to the Nordic countries. Gunnar is an amazing cook too, we chatted and we talked about our passion for photography, he is a good guide but come in a form of a friend, he is honest, gives good feedback about things.... More

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
