We participated in Guide Gunnar's tour on 18 March 2014. Although the Aurora was not as active as we'd hoped, we were happy with our experience at a couple of different locations over quite a period of time.Like other reviews, Gunnar is professional and does go out of his way to make sure everyone is looked after, including the supply of warm suits and boots, lighting a fire by the lake, providing a hot drink and some seriously delicious cake.
I managed to capture some photos from our night using my Sony Cybershot DSC 100 & tripod.Some of the manual camera settings I used ranged from M13" - M25", F 1.8 - 2.2 & ISO 400 - 800 in various combinations.
If your going to be the photographer on the night, familiarise yourself with your camera's settings, including the manual settings, like I did. Don't wait till the night and then expect Gunnar to show you how to operate your camera.This is your responsibility.
If you think your warm and rugged up enough & don't need the thermal suits Gunnar offers you, think again, especially if you feel the cold. Also put the suits and boots on before getting out of the bus. If you don't and after standing on the snow for sometime, you'll become cold and find it difficult to warm up.
On this tour what we met was a guy (Gunnar) who did everything within his power to host a great night for you and provide you with every opportunity to see the Aurora. At the end of the day seeing the Aurora Borealis is really the luck of the draw!
This review is about the service we received, which was top notch, and not the degree of light show we witnessed.
