A keen finder of the optimal scenic wilderness location for your night chasing the northern lights, GuideGunnar sets up his outdoor kitchen and treats you to a tasty, vegetarian Autumn Soup, prepared over the open fire and served with home baked 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.
So sit back and relax while dinner is being served and GuideGunnar will share stories from local history and Norwegian fairy tales of trolls and moose. And should Lady Aurora disrupt just at dinner time, you’re all set to grab the chance of experiencing the lights.
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, small group of only eight guests’ chase into the Arctic wilderness you are 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.
– 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.
