"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."
Siddarth and Sahand, Northern Lights Multi-activity Adventure in Lapland, New Year 2022/23
"We had a fantastic time. So much so that we are looking at similar experiences in other Scandinavian countries for future trips."
Steven, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, New Year 2022/23
"It was brilliant that you were so easily reachable on the phone in the run-up - rather than going with a massive anonymous company who just have an online presence. It made all the difference. You were so helpful both on the phone and online. The best Christmas we have ever had as a family. Our guide was fantastic, we had so much fun in the cabin at night, playing games by candlelight. It was brilliant having no wifi, TV etc. The days were long and tiring but wonderful and the evenings were cosy and fun. It's hard finding something that everyone wants to do with young adult children but this ticked all the boxes. All 5 of us had the time of our lives."
Lisa, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, Christmas 2022
"I enjoyed ALL of it from start to finish! Mostly the dogs, but also dipping in the frozen lake beneath the northern lights on my 50th birthday."
Alison, Northern Lights Dog Sledding in Lapland, Christmas 2022
"Where do I even begin?! The whole experience was unreal. The scenery was breathtaking, the dogs could never disappoint, and all the staff and team were so lovely and friendly! The guides were incredible! It was honestly one of the most incredible experiences and like nothing I could have ever imagined (especially growing up in Australia). Can only send huge thanks and praise to everyone involved. Pre-departure commuication was very seamless and the Nature Travels staff were great at responding to my emails with a lot of detail."
Rebecca, Discover Dog Sledding in Lapland, Christmas 2022
"Loved the dogs! Helpful and kind staff both at Nature Travels and on my adventure. Wonderful experience."
Elizabeth, Aurora Husky Adventure in Finnmark, December 2022
"Thanks for organising such a great trip - I have already sent the details to a few envious solo traveller friends. I chose Nature Travels because of good pricing and having all the activities I wanted to try. I think all the activities were great and well organised. All the guides made me feel really welcome and were always friendly and helpful."
Nicola, Aurora Lodge Escape in Lapland, December 2022
"We had the most amazing time. It was the most exhilarating and epic trip, with such a brilliant set up. The dogs are just incredible and our guide was superb. It's one of the best experiences of our lives (and we have done a lot of travelling). You just can't put into words how magical it is. Thanks again for such a wonderful trip."
Sarah, Dog Sledding and Northern Lights in Vindelfjällen, December 2022
"The best holiday we've ever had!"
