"Despite the fact that it was difficult, it was extremely well-organised. [The highlight was] the food, the guesthouses the sights the activities pre and post ski." Marie-Claire, February 2017

"The food was delicious, the hosts very welcoming and the scenery and ski paths each day were very scenic. The routes were not too technically challenging and the guides were very helpful and patient in assisting those of us who needed a little bit of additional guidance in navigating the occasional tricky bit of downhill through the forest. Even though I was the only person with English as a first language speaker in my group (the others were all German), I felt fully included in all the explanations about all the activities, including the day's program and the highlights along the route as well as the meals and accommodation arrangements. I particularly enjoyed our basic Finnish language instruction from Minna and the general cameraderie, as well as the opportunity to feed the reindeer. The dip in the ice-hole turned into quite an exhilarating activity that wasn't quite as scary as I thought it might have been beforehand! I would certainly recommend the skiing experience to future clients of Nature Travels." Patrick, February 2016

"On the WiFi at Kuopi airport so thought I'd send some hot off the press feedback! We had a great trip to Finland in all. Highlights - The food, all very local, the different cooks explained ingredients or processes or where they picked the raw ingredients. At times I felt we were getting the best produce from their larders and felt guilty that their families weren't getting it but that just showed their hospitality. The skiing - snow wasn't quite as hoped but we still were able to do four trails directly from the door and two days travelled to access public tracks. It gave us a nice variety underfoot as some of the local trails were quite tough and uneven in a satisfyingly challenging way! I really liked that the guide explained the route and then let us ski at our own speed, so the super speedy at the front weren't constrained by the less technically proficient middle or less fit back. So many other tour operators don't have the ability to trust that clients can read a map!!! We were able to ski as fast and if we wanted further than the set route each day. The personal touch - from carrying candles to light our way across the frozen lake, Finnish lessons and songs to getting a personal and humorous diploma this morning, Minna was a very thoughtful hostess." Avril, February 2016

"We really enjoyed our holiday in Finland." David, February 2016

"[The best part was] the opportunity to stay with local people and enjoy local food, rather than being in large hotels with bland cuisine. We enjoyed the international composition of the group, and we liked the tour leader's leadership style." Patricia, February 2016
