GuideGunnar`s Private Aurora Chase - Tromsų

Experienced guide & good comfort transport all yours for maximum flexibility and privacy, experiencing the northern lights.

GuideGunnar guests travelling the world to see the northern lights

GuideGunnar's Private Aurora Chase is perfect for work teams, good friends, and family adventures.

In your chase for the magical Aurora Borealis, GuideGunnar finds the way to the best weather conditions, delivering a consistently high northern lights finding rate.

In this high quality, good service chase into the Arctic wilderness your private group is well looked after by one of Norway’s most innovative and experienced tour guides. Educated mountain guide, GuideGunnar is known for his energy and enthusiasm, sharing generously his in-depth, local knowledge of heritage and country. In Norway, people also know GuideGunnar from the TVNorge series Jakten på Nordlyset, Chasing the Northern Lights, where he featured prominently throughout ten episodes.

GuideGunnar’s Private Aurora Chase also treats you to Norwegian traditional dinner & snacks around the camp fire and presents on screen introduction to the physics wizardry and cultural history of Aurora Borealis.

– What is most important to me is that you as a guest shall have the best possible chance to experience what you have come here for; to see the dance of Lady Aurora in the nightern skies.

GuideGunnar's Private Aurora Chase is available in Tromsø, but sometimes, if it fits my calendar I can also do a Private Aurora Chase in Alta.

GuideGunnar recommends

Head lamp. White light when you walk out in the terrain, red light when you work with your camera.
Mitten gloves! Please wear mitten gloves (rather than finger gloves) as your fingers will help keep each other warm when together.
Read more about preparing for the cold on GuideGunnar's Clothing and Gears in the Arctic environment page.

When we are out there in the darkness, please keep your head light to yourself to not disturb the night sight for your fellow travellers. No camera flash, please!

Dinner around the camp fire is included

GuideGunnar’s Private tour in Tromsø offers an Autumn Soup hot meal, served by the camp fire.
Autumn Soup is a vegetarian soup of mixed vegetables, served with GuideGunnar’s home made bread. For meat lovers there is the Norwegian delicacy ‘Fenalår’, a dry cured lamb ham which has been part of the Norwegian cuisine for centuries. Fenalår is often compared with prosciutto or jamón curado, only it’s lamb.
