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!
"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
"Just 'being there' was great already, but the 2 full days out in the vast empty spaces, lakes and forests was just wonderful..."
Gerbo, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, March 2023
"Just amazing. I've done it before so I knew what to expect. Enjoyed second time around as much as the first."
Kirsa, Husky Mountain Expedition in Lapland, March 2023
"Skiing in the national parks was great, landscapes were beautiful. And of course the sauna experience was great. Found you last year and loved it, so wanted to repeat this year."
Kike, Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala, March 2023
"Being back from a fantastic trip to Sweden with 4 days of skating on excellent ice, we want to say thank you to you for organising this unforgettable trip. We felt looked after by you very attentively, nicely and reliably, and our local guide was very experienced and friendly."
Bettina, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, private tour March 2023
"Everything pre-departure was excellent: the amount of info, the ease of contact, the email communications, the flexibility to work with our personal requirements. The highlights were numerous: the location and landscape, the weather we enjoyed, the easy relationship we quickly established with the guide, and the skills we learnt, especially the campcraft in the low temperatures. In 30 yrs of going to Scotland in the winter and the Alps in the summer, this is the first time we have actually hired a guide, and it proved to be a very good experience. Thank you for making it happen!"
Clive, Backcountry Skiing and Winter Camping in Abisko, private tour, February 2023
"Our guide was fantastic! - helpful, knowledgeable, and great company. I felt safe under his guidance - thank you! I really enjoyed socialising with our small group in the hostel; cooking and relaxing. This is my second Beginners' tour, it is perfect for my ability. To skate on a frozen lake is magical! I have travelled with Nature Travels before, and really enjoy your trips. I believe you offer excellent customer service and are good value for money."
Oliver, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2023
"Our hosts were wonderful - really helpful, friendly and thoughtful. The dogs were amazing and the overnight trip was magical - beautiful scenery, great food cooked over open fires and the log-fired sauna was fantastic. You were really responsive and very comprehensive in your emails. Nature Travels is a specialist company offering access to winter activities with an emphasis on sustainability, which is really important to us."
Richard, Discover Husky Sledding in the Wilderness, February 2023
"We had a wonderful time. One of the most memorable experiences we've had! Thank you so much for all you did to coordinate our travel plans."
Kirsten, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2023
"Thank you very much for another very enjoyable trip. I loved the lunchtimes round the fire, the sauna with ice hole, the remoteness of the terrain, the accommodation that made you feel like you were welcome in someone's home."
Toby, Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala, February 2023
"I had the trip of a lifetime!! The trip met all my expectations and more. It was fantastic and have been feeling homesick for the dogs ever since I came home. Everything was great from start to finish! Fantastic group and guide, nice and comfy cabins, good food, lovely dogs, beautiful countryside while sledding. We had so much fun. Everything was clear and you were quick to respond to emails."
Sarah, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2023
"Excellent experience in the Finland national parks. Well organised, safe and very welcoming Finnish hosts."
Toby, Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala, February 2023
"We had the best time ever. We have unanimously decided it was our best holiday experience. Our local hosts went out of their way to make sure our time was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We really liked that we could get so hands-on with looking after the dogs and it made us feel much more a part of the whole experience. Everything was organised very well, the equipment was very good but most importantly the people were so friendly and accommodating. As for the dogs, what can we say. We miss them so much. They were just so lovable and so much fun. We can't wait to go back."
Kapil and family, Experience Dog Sledding and Winter Camping in Finnmark, February 2023
"We really enjoyed the ice skating. The ice on the last 2 days was wonderful for skating. Although a beginners group, we managed over 60km of skating over the weekend. We were amazed by the incredible patterns of bubbles under the ice. Our guide was excellent and worked extremely hard to look after us well and make sure that we enjoyed the skating."
Hilary, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2023
"Great guide, variations in day tours (lakes, rivers, forest, etc). Great people, great dogs, really liked the wilderness cabins. Length of the trips per day were good." Jeltje, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2023
"We loved every aspect of the trip. The dog sledding was so much fun and such a wonderful experience. Our local hosts could not do enough for us to make the trip fun, comfortable and memorable. We will definitely be back! I thought you were very responsive to all of my emails and was very happy with your service. All the information was quite comprehensive and meant that we brought all of the gear that we needed."
Elizabeth, Experience Dog Sledding and Winter Camping in Finnmark, February 2023
"We had a wonderful trip. It was absolutely brilliant with a great guide and some lovely fellow sledders."
Colin, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, February 2023
"Combination of good food, great people and good accommodation."
Jacky, Cross Country Skiing in Eastern Finland, February 2023
"Choosing a highlight is very difficult as it was all so fantastic. Possibly the first skate on the first day - having done it before, it was so wonderful to be back on the ice, and it was great quality ice, despite the thin layer of snow. Please pass on my (and Iris's) thanks for the vegan options. Our guide had really thought about this, and it was much appreciated."
Jacky, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, February 2023
"Pre-departure information was all excellent and thorough. It was a wonderful trip. It is hard to point out a single best part of the trip. The whole experience was great, beyond expectations."
John, Northern Lights Multi-activity Adventure in Lapland, January 2023
"Extremely easy to book and you were very helpful with questions. The skating was simply amazing and in some of the most gorgeous scenery. Our guide was very diligent and extremely interesting about everything from skating to the country's history. A really special experience! Thank you for arranging an incredible trip!"
Iona, Ice Skating on Natural Ice, January 2023
"The trip itself was absolutely incredible – a lifetime experience that I will never forget. Our guide was superb – the most calm, patient and kind person. Really looks after the dogs and guided us clearly on what we need to do. He was so knowledgeable and experienced and the most hard-working person. The scenery was just epic, the dogs were gorgeous and the experience was incredible. The people on my trip were all great and I made some really good friends. I was sad to leave my dogs behind and still think of them every day. I can't believe how cuddly they are!"
Jemma, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2023
"Loved it all, to be able to experience such a holiday was fantastic. The huskies are incredible. Everything was included and it felt best value for money."
Rebecca, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2023
"The trip was really fantastic, a very memorable and special experience. Thanks for all your help you and the team were very responsive and helpful. The highlight was participating in the work needed to look after the dogs, get the water, light the fire etc. Our guide was fantastic, patient and extremely knowledgeable."
Arielle, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, January 2023
"Lars is a fantastic host. The husky sledding, reindeer sledding, snowshoeing sessions were all excellent. I also think that the people around are extremely nice and always willing to talk with you. It doesn't feel at all like a 'timed' tour. Finally, I cannot stress enough how good the food was during this trip - it was all homemade and exceptionally good. This was the most surprising part of the trip to me and was excellent. [I chose Nature Travels because] great tours, fast and very professional responses. No issues at all."
