If you love the outdoors, whether you're looking for your first canoe tour or a challenging dog sledding expedition, you've come to the right place!
"Loved the whole trip - both guesthouses were fantastic, the local food was excellent, the days out skiing were excellent - loved the fact that the hosts created their own ski tracks. Overall it was a brilliant trip."
Anna, Cross Country Skiing in Eastern Finland, February 2024
"For me it was the 'everything' that made the experience - looking after the dogs and actually sledding. Our guide was fantastic - he had a great sense of humour, was extremely calm and warned us when we had a difficult manoeuvre to do. Our host at the cabin during the trip was excellent - she was welcoming, oozed calmness and positivity, and the food was delicious! We were really impressed with the detail of the information we were given before going on the trip."
Lisa, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2024
"The whole trip was amazing. Our guide was brilliant, explaining everything and really helped make the trip what it was. Every part of the trip was well organised and really enjoyable. My trip was rather niche and Nature Travels provided all the right info at the right cost."
Billy, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, February 2024
"We managed to skate every day with the guides finding skatable locations. The weather cooperated and our last day of skating in the Archipelago was pure magic! Endless perfect ice was all I had hoped for. It was one of the best single day outdoor activities of my life!!"
Jim, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2024
"I can honestly say it has been one of the best holidays of my entire life! I loved every minute of it and time went so fast (although not as fast as my dogs)! It was supposed to be a one-off holiday of a lifetime, but I loved it so much that I am already planning on going again. The natural high was completely addictive. I also wanted to say thank you to you and the team in the UK and in Sweden. I found the booking process all very easy, and there was always somebody to ask for advice."
Sarah, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2024
"This is my 4th trip and it's always great to be out in the fresh air and skating. Our guide was really calm, kind and considerate. Pre-departure process works like clockwork. There was another couple on the trip also singing your praises."
Jacky, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2024
"The dogs were remarkable and very well cared for, which was excellent. Our guide and the gear provided were also excellent, as was the food, especially as we only had the stove top. I really like the dogs and the setup."
Bruce, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, February 2024
"The sledding was great, loved the dogs and fellow travelers and the guide was awesome! It would have been even better if it were longer!"
Stejara, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2024
"Our guide was amazing and the group was nice too!! The dogs...I loved them!"
Sara, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2024
"It was one of the best experiences of my life! The team at the kennels couldn't have been more helpful or kinder and the dogs are the friendliest, kissiest dogs ever. This trip was not easy but the team helped and advised with every aspect. The food throughout was excellent and plentiful."
Diane, Experience Dog Sledding and Winter Camping in Finnmark, February 2024
"Very good guide who was passionate about dog sledding. Great scenery on the dog sled, nice food in the evening."
James, One-day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna, February 2024
"This was just out of this world incredible. Our tour guide was amazing and really made it special, and we were hands on with the dogs more than we expected."
Emma, One-day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna, January 2024
"I had a wonderful time working with the dogs, seeing the Northern Lights, and the guides and cabin at the kennels were excellent."
Neal, Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark, January 2024
"I would like to thank you (especially Niki) for perfect organisation and communication. I spent the best 5 days of my life and also my best birthday I will never ever forget. Everything was perfect. The hardest part was saying goodbye to the dogs. So once again THANK YOU."
Miroslav, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, January 2024
"The whole trip was great, couldn't fault it. It was probably the best holiday I have had. It was challenging and rewarding. Working with the huskies and the fantastic scenery along with a great guide and fellow travellers. I had a fantastic time and I will be letting people know that if they're looking for an adventure holiday this should be high on their list. I will be recommending Nature Travels and the service has been great. Thanks Niki."
Coleman, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2024
"It was honestly the most amazing trip. We are so glad we choose it for our honeymoon. Our guide was brilliant and we saw the northern lights four times! We were so sad to leave the dogs. They have such a special place in our hearts."
Lauren, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2024
"We had an amazing time, both my son and I said it was one of the best things we had ever done. I think we were so focused on the sledding we hadn't really thought about the experience around it of the cabin living with the log burning stoves, communal eating and living, prepping the dogs and generally just being out in the wild and the wonderful scenery, it was all magical. Thanks again for all your help, truly special memories made."
Andrew, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, January 2024
"The local hosts and guide were so friendly, helpful and caring. They along with very friendly dogs made it really special. Was just so personal, which made a huge difference. Instructions to get there were clear, accommodation was 5-star in the lodge and better than expected in the cabins. Will recommend Nature Travels to others."
Chris, Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark, January 2024
"The best part of the trip was the truly self-sufficient living style and getting really hands on throughout the week. Thanks very much for the easy transaction from start to finish!"
Thomas, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2024
"We had the most amazing experience, thank you. Everything was very well organised and we were so impressed with our guide. He was so passionate about the dogs and the environment and kept us safe at all times... even when it was minus 42 degrees!"
Elaine, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, New Year 2023/24
"Another superb tour with Nature Travels! My first time in Lapland - our guide was professional, easy to talk to and caring. Such an amazing experience to try all forms of Arctic activities in knee-deep snow. What a lovely and comfortable base for the week too, accompanied with delicious home-cooked meals. I loved cross country skiing on traditional skis, a great way to explore a snow-capped forest. The multi-activity adventure is a great introduction into all types of Arctic sports. Thank you for your swift communication and helpful guidance!"
Oliver, Winter Multi-activity Adventure in Lapland, New Year 2023/24
"The adventure was exceptional - huskies, wilderness, remoteness, great beauty. I would rate this experience very highly amongst others. Many thanks for all your help with this trip."
Airlie, Hut to Hut Aurora Husky Safari in Lapland, New Year 2023/24
"Felt well hosted at the Lodge, with no pressure to do extra activities. Snowshoeing was lovely. Will return and recommend. Thank you. I chose Nature Travels because you offered the right range of trips, with expertise in the area."
Roz, Aurora Lodge Escape in Lapland, New Year 2023/24
"It was an incredible trip. The nature, the dogs, everything. Really brilliant. Your communication was quick and personal, which helped us to feel confident booking the trip. Very comprehensive information. Thank you."
Lara, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, Christmas 2023
"We are all missing the husky sledding adventure, it was fantastic!"
Louise, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, Christmas 2023
"The dog sledding was fantastic. Probably harder and more adventurous than I thought, but that's a good thing. I didn't want a tourist dogsled ride. This was a trip. Guide was expert and great."
Brian, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, Christmas 2023
"It is so hard to capture the many magical moments of this trip. The spectacular landscape, the joy of being on a sled pulled by your own team of dogs, the laughs along the way, the magical evenings in the cabins...and the Northern Lights as the icing on a very big cake! Thank you for all your help organising the most fantastic adventure. What an experience! It was probably the most memorable week of my life and I will always treasure it."
Suzanne, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, December 2023
"The dogs and people were the best parts. We had a great all-rounded bunch of people that were eager to get stuck in and work as a team. I loved working with the dogs and getting to know their personalities, they proved challenging at times but it was very rewarding. The guide was passionate about his work. I would like to do a longer tour or in the mountains next time."
Chelsea, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, December 2023
"Bear and I have had the most fantastic time in Lapland!! ...especially the husky tour, we loved every moment!"
Annette, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, December 2023
"I had an AMAZING time, thank you so much :) Looking forward to coming back for a longer sledding session. Best part of the trip was playing with the huskies and experiencing the full sledding experience. It was fun, hard work but fun! I had a great trip, thank you so much. I found you to be the most informative website in my searches. Niki was a great help in booking the tour."
Kelly, One-day and Overnight Husky Tours in Kiruna, December 2023
"Amazing trip from start to finish. The dogs were wonderful and our guide was brilliant. He was helpful and informative and clearly cared about what he was doing."
Ian, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, December 2023
"We had such a wonderful time, all the memories I'm going through now are just overwhelming, from our great guide, who led us safely and very enjoyably, to wonderful doggs and all stuff in the kennels to such a beautiful nature around us. We were so lucky, the weather was just perfect, with -26 Celsius on day two which was just a perfect experience. Me personally, I know I'll be back. Thank you so much."
Tomas, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, November 2023
"I really liked how organized everything was and the PDF we got before the start to prepare. Also equipment and all was as it was decribed before. Best part of the trip was the camping on the islands."
Marlene, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, September 2023
"We loved everything! We loved the peace. The wild camping. The vastness. But we also loved the little town of Bengstfors and the hotel. We had the best time. The whole trip went so smoothly so thank you very much. It was a wonderful experience to completely clear your head of anything but what was in front of you. I hope to do more trips with you in the future. Even your details of the public transport were so accurate and made everything simple. Can’t thank you enough for giving us the possibility to see Sweden like that."
Mel, Canoeing in Dalsland's Lake District, September 2023
"I really enjoyed the hiking tour and spending time with the guide. We got along well and it was a great experience for me."
Tim, Northern Lights Hiking in Three Countries, August 2023
"Our host was the best. He was so relaxed and great with our children. He was really patient with the youngest and our eldest (who can already sail) he really let take charge and left him to it whilst giving him hints and tips. We loved the sailing but paddleboarding in the evenings was so much fun and we really enjoyed the whole experience."
Gemma, Sailing in the Stockholm Archipelago, August 2023
"Amazing service and support with booking and planning, thanks! Very well planned trip in a beautiful place."
Sam, Self-guided Packrafting and Hiking in Tiveden, August 2023
"Good communication and lots of info. We loved being in the vast and quiet Swedish outdoors with the clean air, beautiful forests and pristine lakes. Sweden met all my expectations as a fantastic place with lovely people, great outdoor culture and nature and our Swedish host was awesome! We had never tried packrafting before, but the mix of paddling and hiking was a great blend for the terrain despite the occasional rain. Tiveden is a beautiful national park and overall we loved the whole experience and already miss Sweden."
Owen, Self-guided Packrafting and Hiking in Tiveden, August 2023
"We chose Nature Travels because of our past experience with you. The best part was coming across deer swimming between the islands, and we think quite a few sea eagles too (or something big and predatory!)."
Tom, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in the Stockholm Archipelago, August 2023
"I am writing to let you know just what a brilliant experience we had timber rafting. It was such fun - a child's dream holiday for adults! We waited 25 years to do this trip and wow it was a unique experience."
Vivien, Timber Rafting on Klarälven, August 2023
"We had the most wonderful time thank you so much. The absolute silence was what I loved the most - just beautiful. We will definitely return in the future."
Oceane, Canoe Tours in Bergslagen, August 2023
"It was an extraordinary trip and I'm so glad we did it. Thanks to everyone we dealt with at Nature Travels for organising this trip and providing such useful info. We found the trip to be a real adventure. The rafting experience was an interesting mix. Building the raft was hard work - the raft building day was about as hard as we could cope with I think. Then we had the contrast of drifting down the river in the sun and relaxing. I think that was my favourite part."
Phil, Timber Rafting on Klarälven, August 2023
"The adventure was beyond our expectations! It was so incredible to be outside, alone, admiring the sunset (and getting bitten by the mosquitoes). Having so much space and nobody around was quite new for us. The best part of the trip was the fact that we were completely alone, offline and just there to appreciate Finland and its gorgeous landscapes. Additionally the cost was affordable and the communication always great! Thanks a lot to our local host and to your support all the way."
Ocean, Canoeing on the Tar Route in Kainuu, August 2023
"We got engaged! Night three, private island, successful fishing, beautiful sunset... how could it not have been special?"
Ruth, Canoe Tours on Svartälven, August 2023
"We had a lovely time in Sweden! The guys at the canoe centre were very kind and helpful despite the bad weather and helped us make the best of our time. It was a good introduction to canoeing for our boys. We look forward to our next adventure with you."
Jenn, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, August 2023
"I chose Nature Travels because of the good reviews of friends that booked before. I loved the landscapes, the peace, the kindness of the Finnish population and the general respect for the wilderness and the National Park."
Mara, Canoe or Kayak in Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Park, July 2023
"Lots of good bits! Active holiday in a place we'd never explored before (plus we booked quite last minute and Nature Travels tried really hard to make the trip work for our dates)."
Biddy, Hiking and Island Hopping in the Stockholm Archipelago, July 2023
"We loved all of it!! The experience of living on board, great sailing, excellent food, swimming and exploring in the most beautiful islands. The info was excellent and we felt very well prepared. Also it worked for the whole family, which isn't always easy with an 11 and a 14 year old. Highlight was the sailing on the last day in perfect sunny, windy weather, when we had the confidence to sail the boat ourselves."
Cath, Sailing in the Stockholm Archipelago, July 2023
"Trip was super and our local host was very helpful. We did a last minute booking and got lots of help from Nature Travels to make it work. The highlights were travelling slow (by bike or foot) and seeing a lot of nature while not having to worry about our luggage."
Sylvia, Hike and Bike in the Stockholm Archipelago, July 2023
"Very comprehensive information. Seeing a beaver and wild camping on an island were definitely highlights!"
Peter, Canoe Tours on Svartälven, July 2023
"A fabulous weekend. The kayaking guide was excellent and the ability to wild camp makes the trip."
Jane, West Coast Kayaking Adventures, June 2023
"Thanks - this was the perfect holiday for us and will definitely be looking at another trip with you. Everything was perfect, camping on the islands such good fun. Local host in Sweden was brilliant and equipment good too."
Dan, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, June 2023
"We had a fab trip! Thanks for all your help organising. Pre-departure service was great - all emails with questions and queries were promptly replied to! The best part was the the beauty of the fiord and the fact we had it mostly to ourselves once we had passed Pulpit rock."
Fiona, Self-guided Kayaking in Lysefjord, June 2023
"Everything was so well explained! Good price, easy to book, perfect itinerary for self-guided. The best part was camping in a remote area and hiking to a waterfall to camp."
Margaret, Self-guided Kayaking in Lysefjord, June 2023
"Our local host was excellent and we were fully prepared for an amazing and achievable adventure."
Howard, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in St Anna and Gryt, June 2023
"We had an absolutely amazing time on our holiday - having all of the gear ready for us so that we didn't have to pack bulky camping equipment was great. The best part was being able to choose our own island to camp on for the night! Guidance on choosing a route was also really good. Would definitely consider booking another holiday with Nature Travels! I searched for canoeing holidays and Nature Travels seemed to have a lot of good self-guided options which looked amazing."
Sarah, Canoe or Kayak in Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Park, June 2023
"Our trip was fantastic, our local host was incredible, friendly and helpful. Overall the trip was very well planned we really enjoyed the experience. The self-guided tour is an excellent idea and let us travel and explore at our pace."
Sam, Self-guided Packrafting and Hiking in Tiveden, May 2023
"We went quite early in the season and it really did feel like we had the archipelago to ourselves! It was really lovely just to take some time out from the real world and enjoy ourselves. We had done another trip with you guys and were really impressed with the service. It was the same this time - helpful, friendly and also budget friendly!"
Isobel, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in the Helsinki Archipelago, May 2023
"Had a wonderful time, thank you very much! Beautiful surroundings, good camping infrastructure, lovely local staff."
Matt, Canoe Tours on Svartälven, May 2023
"The trip was really good. Guides were excellent. Group was really nice and we all got on very well. First 2 days were good, getting to see people's capability and fitness with some really good treks and skiing. Next couple of days also good with more stretching activity in beautiful scenery, including a sunset ski. The hut was fun. We were also very lucky with the weather...complete sunshine!"
Simon, Alpine Ski Touring in the Sunnmøre Alps, April 2023
"We had a lovely time and would love to do this again."
Dorien, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, April 2023
"A superb week, helped by the first 3 sunny days, excellent guide and the experience of other members of the group, as I was the only new one to 'arctic' experience. Thank you all for a really enjoyable, rewarding and educational week!"
Chris, Backcountry Skiing and Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland, April 2023
"Had an absolutely stunning holiday - I had the best time! Absolutely amazing adventure in Lapland - a week full of husky sledding, scrumptious food, a variety of cabins (and saunas of course!), laughs with new friends and getting back to nature. What more could you need?!? The best part was the husky sledging of course - absolutely brilliant, unforgettable memories!"
Beth, Hut to Hut Aurora Husky Safari in Lapland, April 2023
"The dog sledding was amazing. Dogs fab. Great guide. Wonderful group. Great value. Thank you for a great experience."
Maria, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland, April 2023
"We had a wonderful time. It's something that I've wanted to do for many years but the kids were too young until now. The sledding itself was a unique experience and different to anything we have done before. We all bonded with our dogs and enjoyed getting to know their different characters. We were all a little bit sad heading back towards the kennels on the third afternoon. The weather was perfect and the temperatures not at all punishing. Our guide/host was really great. We really couldn't have hoped for any better. Thank you also for all your attention and support both pre-booking and pre-trip."
Nicolas, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, April 2023
"Pre-departure service was very helpful and personal. You came up with the sort of trip I wanted - and it was available at short notice. Great value. [The best part was] the whole thing. The terrain, the food, the organisation, our guide and a fabulous group. The catered lunch stops in the wild were something special!"
John, Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala, April 2023
"There was a beautiful feeling of community that formed in the group. I truly can't imagine being any luckier. The scenery was just epic. Each day was better than the last. Our guide was an amazing leader. He was thoughtful, supportive, and you could just tell how much he cared. This was all especially appreciated since I was a novice: the encouragement and support I got from him and the rest of the team made me so much better than I could ever have become without."
John, Backcountry Skiing and Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland, March 2023
"It was just mind blowing, one of the best trips ever, absolutely adored every second of it, and will definitely go back as this is totally my kind of holiday. Fell in love with one of the dogs, met wonderful people, loved the dog sledding, the guest house and host was the best ever, and on top of everything I was lucky enough to see the northern lights the first night at the guest house. Just one of the best trips ever really... Thank you thank you thank you. I will be back!"
Geraldine, Go Dog Sledding in Trøndelag, March 2023
"I thought everything was great, people, weather, dogs. I was very happy with the overall experience. I enjoyed spending time with the people on my team and the dogs. I enjoyed the quiet."
Michael, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland, March 2023
"We had an excellent guide and our group worked very well together. The skiing was exciting and the remoteness very enjoyable. It was a hard trip as decribed in your information, but a great experience."
Joerg, Backcountry Skiing and Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland, March 2023
