GuideGunnar's Aurora Chase - Tromsų

Experience Aurora Borealis, the northern lights with GuideGunnar

Northern lights with GuideGunnar


Guided Aurora Chase into the Arctic wilderness - since 2006! Prof. Guide since 1997!

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 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 was one of the first in Arctic Norway to give global travelers a unique experience under the northern lights. 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 Aurora Chase Tromsø also treats you to Norwegian traditional 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.

Are you a Real Aurora Chaser..? Do you have enough patience to follow on a GuideGunnar`s Aurora Chase..?


We will stay out longer if the weather conditions and Aurora activity says so, and we will drive further if we need too for finding the best clear sky...

Why..? Cause I am addicted to my job as a Aurora Chaser in my 13th season as a Aurora Guide, and I want to do all my best for give you what you`re here for; Get the best opportunity to Lady Aurora`s dance, the Northern Lights!

If you not are a Real Aurora Chaser, please book a shorter chase!
