Jenny, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, August 2022

Kate, Canoe Tours on Svartälven, August 2022
"We are just home from our first trip with you. Everything was well organised and the local hosts were excellent."
Heather, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, August 2022
"Our 4th time with this brilliant company. Excellent information, personal and prompt service, really friendly, competitively priced. Just an overall seamless booking experience. Website is clear and informative, and all email correspondence with further information was prompt and helpful. Another great holiday (appreciated even more after the restrictions of the last few years). Keep doing what you do!"
Serena, Canoeing in Dalsland's Lake District, July 2022
"To discover Rogen with canoe was awesome."
Tine, Discover Wilderness Canoeing in Rogen, July 2022
"The Tar Route gave us just the right amount of challenge. It felt like an adventure, not a holiday, and that was exactly what we wanted. It gave my girls the opportunity to show me how brave, resilient and supportive they have become. Finland was extraordinarily peaceful. We never saw another tourist so always had campsites to ourselves. Facilities were immaculately well kept by the rangers and respectful fellow travellers. We saw a white-tailed sea eagle, a crane and great northern divers amongst other wildlife. Our host was a delight to meet, professional and helpful at all times."
Adam, Canoeing on the Tar Route in Kainuu, July 2022
"It was all great! Excellent kayaking centre in Sweden - super helpful pre-trip briefing and excellent kit. Fantastic camping locations."
Katie, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, July 2022
"It was magical. The camping, the silence, the freedom, the beauty of the country."
Rianne, Canoeing in Dalsland's Lake District, July 2022
"The local host was amazing and was very friendly. Great experience on the kayak and in the fjord. Thanks for facilitating this kind of trip."
Baptiste, Self-guided Kayaking in Lysefjord, July 2022

Lewis, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, July 2022
"Well...we had an AMAZING time!!! Sweden was phenomenal!!! Thanks so much for your help in sorting us out for our holiday."
Andy, Canoeing in Dalsland's Lake District, July 2022
"This trip exceeded our expectations! We didn't fully know what to expect before our trip, but as soon as we reached the lake we were amazed and blown away. The islands we camped on each night were spectacular and so well looked after. I feel we received all the relevant information before our trip in the info. For any questions that we did have, you responded to us quickly and answered our queries."
Chloe, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, July 2022
"Just the sort of adventure holiday I was looking for. The feeling of being in the wilderness, the canoe trip was fantastic, lovely camping areas, beautiful scenery."
Christina, Canoe Tours on Svartäven, June 2022
"I had a great time. Everything ran very smoothly, and as we travelled just before high season, we had a very peaceful 7 days! I have travelled with you before, and think your service is excellent."
Will, Canoe Tours on Svartälven, June 2022
"It was a lovely holiday. The cabin stay before and after the canoeing was particularly enjoyable. The sauna with the cabin was an additional pleasure. The host was very helpful and knowledgeable. Previous good experiences gave us confidence that this would be another successful holiday. [We really enjoyed] the variety - the options to camp or use cabins, especially the island sauna."
John and Jenny, Canoeing on the Tar Route in Kainuu, June 2022
"Thanks very much for organising our kayaking trip. We had an amazing time. It was so peaceful paddling in the archipelago and we saw some incredible sights such as sea eagles (which we have not seen in the UK) and beautiful sunsets. Our local hosts were so friendly and helpfully kitted us out and suggested suitable routes and places to camp. It is certainly a great place to do kayaking and wild camping and the cabins at Harstena were superb - very clean and modern and perfect for our party."
Daniel and Stephen, Discover Sea Kayaking in St. Anna and Gryt, June 2022
"Beautiful nature. It is a very good idea to provide almost everything needed for an equipment-heavy activity such as a canoe tour. This way we could come over from the UK and get everything from the team. You were helpful and friendly and gave me all the information I needed."
Luca, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, May 2022
"Great doing business with a company you can trust. Nature Travels do a fantastic job and we'll be definitely be back in touch soon. We loved the whole thing - the accommodation, peace and quiet, ease of travel, the Finnish people. Finland was fantastic! The cabin, scenery, people, food were all brilliant and even the weather was kind. In particular, the accommodation was outstanding in all respects with the sauna and hot tub a real bonus."
Peter, Romantic Cabin with Hot Tub in Päijänne Tavastia, May 2022
"We had an amazing time on the water in Dalsland, a stunning place with astounding islands, we found our own "smultronställe" [special places] several times on our journey. We wanted to sincerely thank you and the team for helping to make this happen for us, especially as you kept our holiday alive during the dark days of the pandemic. Excellent work and well done!"
Adam, Canoeing in Dalsland's Lake District, May 2022
"The best part?! Too hard to list one but I think the overall experience of being in the middle of nowhere, in the beautiful snow, with the most gorgeous dogs was sensational. The kindness of our hosts, the care and patience of our guide, and the love we felt from those dogs, we were so lucky! We really mean it when we say we didn't want to leave. We loved it so much. An experience of a lifetime!"
Sophie, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, April 2022
"This trip exceeded our expectations and I do not think it could be matched! The hosts offered exactly the right level of adventure for us, we had so much fun! Thank you to all involved."
Andi, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, April 2022
"Learning how to dogsled was so cool and great to see the dogs enjoy it as well. [The best part was] getting to look after and hang out with the dogs!"
Sara, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, April 2022
"I just wanted to thank you and the company for your approach and efforts through recent times. Much appreciated. I would certainly recommend you to others and have. We had a good time."
Brian, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, April 2022
"People were lovely, eco friendly, felt very welcomed. I've been telling my colleagues how amazing it was. It was a pleasure in meeting you as well and it's nice to know you're as passionate about the trips and it's not just a 'business'. It was one of the most peaceful and also exciting trips at the same time. [I chose Nature Travels because] prompt communication, good information about the tour, offered flexibility if there was Covid restrictions or affected by Covid."
Natalie, Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark, April 2022
"We loved our holiday. We have many wonderful photos and memories."
Anne, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland (10-day tour), April 2022
"Thank you for your incredible help in planning and making this trip of a lifetime so successful. The dog sledding adventure exceeded all expectations for everyone in the family. I can't speak highly enough for you and your company. The dogs are the most amazing animals. When the literature said that you should 'bond with your dogs': I thought no there's no way you can bond in eight days, but we were all so bonded with our dogs I am truly aching with missing them. This was a true adventure, and my three adult children were absolutely over the moon with the challenges of this trip. I can't even rate this trip as it was off the scales!! Bravo."
Julia, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, March 2022
"The trip to Eastern Finland was excellent in every way (though the skiing was, to say the least, challenging as the tracks were very icy). Minna was a brilliant leader and host. Nothing was too much trouble for her. I felt truly immersed in Karelian culture. The food and accommodation were great at all three places we stayed. I have fond memories of skiing a long way on Finland's fifth largest lake in the sunshine, past two big boats moored in the ice, to enjoy a feast of Karelian pies. The itinerary was varied and always interesting. We tried snowshoeing, and plunging in the ice hole in the lake at the smoke sauna."
Ros, Cross Country Skiing in Eastern Finland, March 2022
"The whole stay was brilliant, with fantastic support from the guide and great quality of food and accommodation! I loved every moment, but in particular the time on the sled and with the dogs, which was simply magical!!! Very happy with the support and follow-up from Nature Travels - thank you."
Ewa, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, March 2022
"A life-changing experience. The package was just perfect."
Marco, Hut to Hut Aurora Husky Safari in Lapland, March 2022
"The best part was meeting the other participants and locals. Learning about the area and its history. Our guide was amazing she really made the trip exceptional."
Lucy, Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala National Parks, March 2022
"It was a breathtaking experience, thank you. Dogs were amazing. Sledding in bright sunshine through the valleys...the snow and the brilliant guests made it...going into the unknown."
Stuart, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland (10-day tour), March 2022
"I loved all of it! The dogs were gorgeous - so gentle and lovely but so enthusiastic to run. I defy anyone not to be a dog lover after this trip! I loved the beauty of the landscape, the simple routine we easily slipped into, the simple lunches round the fire, the fact you get involved in all the tasks, not to mention the dog sledding itself, which was really fun!! And lastly, we had an amazing display of the Northern Lights on the last night so we were really happy about that!"
Elizabeth, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, March 2022
"The best part was sledding in varied countryside with turns and undulations. It offered beautiful scenery and an opportunity to get out of breath and be more active in assisting the dogs to travel."
Quintus, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, March 2022
"We had a wonderful time. Thank you for all your help with this amazing adventure."
Julia, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, March 2022
"We had a great time. Amazing experience. Thank you for your support and advice."
Teresa, Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark, March 2022
"The best parts were the group of people, the places we stayed and the people we met, as well as the wilderness skiing."
Jane, Cross Country Skiing in Eastern Finland, March 2022
"I had a great backcountry skiing trip with Nature Travels in northern Finland, superbly organised by Bob and his team and with expert local guides. For anyone wanting a taster of 'expedition' backcountry skiing treks, remote arctic wilderness and a healthy dose of living 'back to basics' then I'd thoroughly recommend this trip. Long days on the skis with packs and pulks but hugely rewarding, great views of the northern lights, and for our small group with a truly international mix, sharing our adventures in the comfort of stove-warmed huts at the end of each day. Attentive and timely input without fail from the NT team meant a very smooth trip from start to finish!"
Dan, Backcountry Skiing and Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland, February 2022
"All commmunication was great and friendly and I was very informed. I was impressed by your professionalism and level of support. This holiday was only just at the right level for me, I was the weakest in the group but was really pleased to have been pushed and accomplished so much more than I had expected. This came down to the guide and the rest of the group who looked after me. It was a fantastic trip."
Inge, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2022
"We had the most incredible time. Our guide did a fantastic job. I felt very safe in his hands, his instruction was clear and sensible and he quickly got the team working together to make the adventure safe, smooth and enjoyable. He made the experience what it was, very unique. His passion, care and love for his dogs was so evident and inspiring. The dogs were fantastic, in incredible condition, very joyful to be around, strong, determined, willing and giving. We were lucky enough to enjoy the lights on three nights. I really am very grateful to you and all the team there for providing me with the best week of my life. I am already looking forward to the next adventure."
Julie, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland, February 2022
"Everything was great! The dogs, the guide, the scenery, nature!!!! Many thanks for a great trip!"
Elliott, Dog Sledding and Winter Camping on the King's Trail, February 2022
"I wanted to express my thanks for such a brilliant trip! I had such a great time ice skating on an actual lake! Our guides were fantastic - very friendly, encouraging and supportive. We felt all meals, transport and accommodation was very well organised too. Lovely to also socialise in the youth hostel, cook and eat together. The 'what to wear/take' is great and I wanted to thank you for the detailed and swift communication before the trip."
Oliver, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2022
"We had THE BEST TIME, and I will be talking about this holiday for the rest of my life. I will be back in the future! Pre-departure process was seamless - very thorough, made booking flights/train super easy to understand! I can't tell you how much this trip meant to me. The whole experience was exactly what I had hoped for, with reconnecting with nature and feeling like I was on the edge of the world. Everything about this experience was so well managed, it was the perfect amount of relaxation and work, and I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting to step out of their comfort zone. Temperatures were at -10 to -17 and I didn't feel cold one bit. Wonderful all round!"
Hannah, One-day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna, February 2022
"The winter log cabin experience in Värmland was a great place to mentally reset, the environment and amenities allowed us to really relax and de-stress!"
Jake, Winter Log Cabin Escape in Värmland, February 2022
"Our three-day dog sledding adventure was incredible. Stunning scenery and a personal "Call of the Wild" bucket list experience. Perfect for anyone wanting to experience working with your own team of huskies travelling across frozen lakes and snow laden forests. The dogs are affectionate and perfect companions. Each night we bedded down in warm, candle lit cabins nestled in frozen forests with hearty and delicious food cooked and served by our wonderful guide. To cap it all we experienced two nights of the magical Northern Lights, which added to an already perfect adventure. We all want to go again for longer and further! I cannot recommend enough."
