Last week I had the good fortune to go on a tour around the Fjords with Gunnar. What a wonderful experience! He gave us a great day, seeing so many wonderful sights. His knowledge and insight was second to none, and he made us feel very welcome and special. Very comfortable transport. I would definitely book another trip with him... More

After having my original planned trip to see the wolves at Polar Park cancelled the day before, I remembered coming across Guide Gunnar when I was doing my research. Luckily he had organised a trip for the same day and I managed to book onto this very last minute. Communication was smooth and fast. As Gunnar doesn't host the trip... More

My bf and I signed up the 5 day soft adventure package and boy was it awesome! In total there was only 4 of us which was nice (it helped that the other two ladies were great too!). We did ice fishing (incl. Snow shoeing), polar park & dog sledding. We didnt do lights chase per se because Gunnar picked... More

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
