We went with Guide Gunnar on January 12, 2014. It was a snowy, cloudy day in Tromso and much of the surrounding area. We really didn't think we would have any luck at all. Guide Gunnar drove us 200 km/3 hours into Finland before finally...More

We decided to travel with Gunnar after searching Trip advisor. It was the best thing we did - we were lucky to have a fantastic show of the Northern Lights. The minibus meant we could go to some much more remote locations. Gunnar was really...More

Like half the world, we were in Tromso in late December to "see the Northern Lights". We had booked a trip with Gunnar and he made the night out really enjoyable. His excursion programme is well described by others on here. We enjoyed his company...More

We went to see the lights with Gunnar, and we were not disappointed! At first, he didn't think we would be able to find them, as there was a lot of cloud cover, we sat by a lake and made a fire, before a little...More

We read all the reviews on gunner, but we're really unimpressed. He was not personable to our group, and spent most of the time on his cell phone. I understand it's not a guarantee to see the northern lights, but based on the below we...More

Hello, My husband and I are planning a trip to Tromso for 7 days in Feb 2016. We both are excited to see the northern lights . Do you think 7 days is sufficient and is feb the right season to plan a trip to see northern lights?

7 days are more than enough for Tromsø. Seeing Northern lights is all depends on luck. You need cloud free sky plus northern lights in the sky. I wish you all the luck and able to see the lights. Book Gunnar's tour, he was... More

Hi Guide Gunnar, I am visiting Tromso Feb 20th 2016 and would like to book a Northern Lights tour with you. I tried to book it through your website, but it says "no bookings available". Are the tours for this date already booked, or has the booking not started? Please let me know!
