What can I say about Gunnar. He has been in this industry for 20 years now, and was one of the first guides around. This is his last season in Tromsø and I am so beyond grateful I spent 3 nights chasing the lights with him. Gunnar brings a level of authenticity that a lot of these other tours with... More

Gunnar thinks of everything to provide a wonderful Northern Lights viewing experience. It can get cold late at night in Norway, but Gunnar offers snowsuits and insulted boots. He builds a fire. Still cold? He offers blankets. He even serves hot juice and pastries. Gunnar knows all of the tips to stay warm. With high tech apps, he finds the... More

We all met up at Guides Central where Gunnar gave us a briefing, then it was off in his very comfy mini bus. We left a 6pm and by 7 we saw our first aurora. I was not too successful with my camera but Gunnar took some great photos and emails them to each guest. We then went on to... More

Despite the not so good weather conditions, Gunnar did EVERYTHING he could for us to see the Lights and we did! I would certainly join Gunnar on his tour again! He promised to deliver and he did! Thanks Gunnar :-)

We had been on a number of other excursions in the area (all good) though none had a guide as passionate about the region's spectacular natural setting and finding the perfect spot from which to view the Aurora Borealis.

We had a wonderful tour with Gunnar. We had searched ourselves with no luck but Gunnar with his contacts knew exactly where to find the lights with the best outlook over the water. Gunnar lit a fire for the quiet time to give us an opportunity to warm up with his hot black current juice. I would thoroughly recommend Gunnar... More

Gunnar and his colleague tried very hard to chase the northern light even the weather was not good. Luckily we finally saw the light and it was really like a girl dancing in the sky! I will always remember this night:) It was also great to have efse (a traditional norwegian snack) and the juice (and the fire!)

Gunar's Northern Lights Tour was absolutely spectacular. Firstly he makes sure everyone has enough clothing and warm boots and explains how to keep warm while out in the open taking photos. He only takes small groups so he has enough time to get around to everyone and help with camera set up etc. He also knows the best spots to... More

We booked an excursion to the Polar Park with Guide Gunnar - I'm going to talk about our experience with Gunnar, rather than the park itself, as he facilitated our visit, rather than had any influence over our experience there. He was very helpful during the booking process - I explained to him that I wanted to book the Kiss... More

Gunnar is an incredible guide, you can tell that he loves his job and he sincerely wants everyone to see the lights. I enquired about spaces via email and the aurora made an appearance near the port in Tromso a little after that - Gunnar immediately emailed me to tell me about the aurora and to go take a look...
