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...

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

Gunnar picked us up from Hav og Fjell and picked others up in Tromso before driving us to a secluded beach about 60km outside of Tromso. On the way he showed us the explanation of what the Northern lights is. On the way we stopped for some photo opportunities and then when we arrived at his beach he lit us... More

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
