"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!"

Robin, Canoe Getaway in Skåne, September 2022
"It was all great, with great information on the website. The best part was finding an island and setting up camp without meeting any other people."
Raphael, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, September 2022
"The camping spots were beautiful."
Paloma, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, September 2022
"There were many highlights, including finding a sandy island to camp on by ourselves, seeing a moose, watching geese fly overhead and eating a fish we caught ourselves for dinner. We wanted to go to Sweden try canoeing as a family. Nature Travels provided the insider knowledge and expertise we needed to safely accomplish the dream!"
Tony, Canoe Tours on Klarälven, August 2022
"You were super helpful with moving the booking twice due to COVID. Thank you. We loved the location - so peaceful."
Kate, Log Cabin Getaway in Päijänne Tavastia, August 2022

Zoe, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, August 2022
"10/10 on all fronts. The kayak company was great and it was an incredible place to do the trip. The amazing weather conditions helped but really couldn't improve on it. Convenient and good value for money as well as being just the trip we were looking for. Having the freedom to go where you like is great!"
Charles, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in St Anna and Gryt, August 2022
"Very easy-going pace and company (though did some proper scary sailing too!); nothing was rushed, lots of opportunities to stop and swim in lovely bays."
Lorna, Sailing in the Stockholm Archipelago, August 2022
"Thanks again for a lovely holiday. The lavu camping facilities and freedom and every man's rights are absolutely liberating and lovely. Fabulous expansive landscapes and water were stunning."

Thomas, Canoe or Kayak in Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Park, August 2022

Jenny, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, August 2022
"Amazing communication, thank you. Thank you so much for your services! We loved all of it! Especially being able to choose where to camp each night. [We chose Nature Travels because] well reviewed/recommended company with large range of activities."

Nicky, Hike, Bike and Paddle Stockholm's Lakes and Islands, July 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
"We've enjoyed the trip so much! 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."

"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."

"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, Self-guided 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

Simon, Discover Wilderness Canoeing in Rogen, September 2021
"The trip was amazing, absolutely brilliant. The designated camping sites on the islands were superb - breathtaking views and peaceful with the most amazing skies at night. If you are lucky you can spend a night on your own island, as we did on all our nights, possibly because we were just out of season. Tents and all kitchen equipment was definitely adequate and easy to use. Highly recommended - it was an amazing trip and the most amazing scenery. Thank you Nature Travels."
Kerrie, Canoe or Kayak in Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Park, September 2021
"I enjoyed being part of a group and that most of the other group members were Swedish. I learnt a lot and bonded with people I would otherwise not have become close with."
Waka, Hiking on the King's Trail from Abisko to Kebnekaise, September 2021
"I really enjoyed the feeling of being in the wild and completely in charge of when and where to camp. Spending hours paddling down the river just to find the perfect spot to set our tent. And the wilderness in Sweden is just amazing, even though we were just a few km away from the nearest village."
Giovanni, Canoe Tours on Klarälven, August 2021
"It was amazing!"
Marion, Canoe or Kayak in Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Park, August 2021
"Everything was perfect, thank you! We already did the same trip 3 years ago. But there is nothing better than kayaking and exploring all the little islands! Thanks for all."
Deniz, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, August 2021
"The entire route was wonderful."
Emma, Discover Wilderness Canoeing in Rogen, August 2021
"We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the good equipment (boxes, food package) that allow for a rather comfortable stay on the raft. We could store most of the equipment + have a nice sitting place and table with the boxes. Plenty of food in the food package (even a bit much, we ate for 3 days extra out of it). Best part: the feeling of freedom in nature. [We chose Nature Travels because] clear info, fast response, great info with possible dates to help plan our trip, so we booked right away."
Seppe, Timber Rafting on Klarälven, July 2021
"The best part was the complete freedom to explore the islands. Everything was clearly communicated and the couple of questions we had were answered very quickly. [I chose Nature Travels because] I had prior experience and knew that you get good quality equipment and professional service."
Tobias, Self-guided Sea Kayaking in Bohuslän, July 2021
"The nature in Rogen is astonishing."
Name not supplied, Discover Wilderness Canoeing in Rogen, August 2020
"Being free to do what you want and not having a set schedule is amazing. We already had experience with Nature Travels on a previous dog sledding tour. Thank you again for an amazing trip!"
