Press coverage of Lakeside Cabin Retreat in Värmland:

"Positioned right on the water, cabins each have their own canoe or boat, which can be used to seek out secret picnic spots among the network of lakes. Inland, there is dense forest to discover, full of wildlife from beavers to elks." The Guardian recommends Lakeside Cabin Retreat in Värmland in its "10 of the Best Waterside Cabin Holidays in Europe".

Customer Reviews of Lakeside Cabin Retreat in Värmland:

"The information was extremely helpful. [The best part was] the beautiful simplicity of the accommodation." Hannah, Cabin Fyra

"Having our own canoe for a whole week was fantastic! And the cabin itself was lovely, especially how close it was to the water, with the garden and platforms by the water's edge. Totally amazing. We had an absolutely fantastic time at Fyra cabin. The cabin itself was perfect and we loved having our own canoe. The kids were completely inspired by all the adventures to islands, swimming, walks in the forest, not to mention bbqs and all the wildlife! We loved it so much we are almost tempted to book straight away for next year. Thanks so much for a great holiday." Nicky, Cabin Fyra

"We stayed very well and loved the quiet and the area. We could really have stayed for one more week. Amazing nature and lakes. We look forward to our next adventure." Riccardo

"You could not have done anymore to organise us! We had a really fantastic holiday. We will definitely recommend Nature Travels to our friends. The remoteness of the cabins was wonderful. We were very fortunate with the weather. It was a memorable holiday that all age groups enjoyed from 7 years - 80!" Annabel, August 2018

"Really friendly team at arrival who were always available and helpful. We had a fantastic time and were extremely lucky with the hot spell of weather - swimming in the lake was a real surprise for us. Johan and Björn were excellent hosts, Björn also gave us some great local knowledge on wildlife (beavers) and where to visit on the lake. The cabin was fantastic, relaxing and cozy." William, Cabin Fyra, late May 2018

"The cabin is stunning and like something from a romantic film, the host is charming and the place divine. The place was delightful, such a tranquil setting." Jane, February 2017

"We absolutely loved our vacation, so great to be secluded in such a nice cabin!" Anne-Laure, New Year 2016/17

"We had a great time. Really happy with the service, thank you for all of your help. The owner of the cabin was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed walking the local trails. The cabin was very nice." Alice and Jon, October 2016

"Pre-departure service was all very good - timely reminders, full information. Excellent all round. [The best part was] the silence and tranquility of the location - we got lucky insofar as the area was very quiet despite it being August and the cabin next to us unoccupied, but it was fantastic. Offered exactly what we were looking for at a very fair price." Richard, Cabin Åtta, August 2016

"We thought the trip was superb. The cabin was lovely, very well-equipped and in a spectacular location. The canoe trip was excellent and we enjoyed it immensely. The organisation was absolutely incredible, the food package and the equipment we hired [for the canoe tour] all exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend the trip. We were really pleased with th service we've received, both in the UK and Sweden. We have already recommended you to friends and will continue to do so. Thank you for a great summer holiday." Sarah, who combined a stay at Cabin Fyra with our Canoe Tours on Klarälven experience, August 2016

"[The best part was the] amount of activities available. And of course the location, next to the lake. Loved what we did. Would like to do more fishing. We all enjoyed it more than we thought." Denise, May 2016

"I'd like to thank you for an all-round positive experience. We had a great time staying at Cabin Fyra. The setting was breathtakingly beautiful. We had a great time on the walking trails and exploring the lake in the rowing boat. Bjorn and Johan were friendly and quick to respond to any requests we had. The sauna with lake view (and cool lake dips for the brave) was amazing. One of the best family holidays we've ever had. Added to that, the simplicity of the booking process and Nature Travels' readiness to give information and answer questions before the trip were much appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nature Travels or V&aumrm;rmland to anyone." Tim, Cabin Fyra, June 2016

"Your staff were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed it all and didn't want to come home! The weather helped as it didn't rain and was really warm. The views, the cabin and the boating on the lake and the sauna were all really good. It was just what we wanted. Thank you." Rachel, June 2015

"Our holiday in Sweden was simply perfect. Nature Travels gave us all the information we needed before departure, and when we arrived, our host was very helpful and supplied us with maps for fishing and hiking. The cabins were of a higher standard than we expected, and were very well-equipped including central heating. The lake is fantastic, one never gets tired of exploring its little islands with the boat or the canoes. All in all it was an amazing experience, one to be remembered!" Martina, Cabin Åtta, September 2014

"Just to let you know what a lovely place the lakeside cabin is! Some rain on first day, but lovely from there on - we have had some lovely walks (unfortunately my son had broken his foot before we left so he has not been able to enjoy the walking) - fresh berries from the forest for breakfast! No luck with catching any fish, but have had fun in the boat." Jackie, Cabin Åtta, August 2013

"This place was exceptional. The cabin was just incredible, so luxurious and comfortable and in such a fantastic location. We had the lake to ourselves pretty much and Björn was really helpful. It's been one of the best holidays we've had as a family." Mark, Cabin Åtta August 2013

"We stayed in the cabin for a week in August this year. Our party consisted of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. The cabin was like new and very well-equipped. The beds and seating in the living area were all very comfortable. The cabin is in a fantastic position overlooking Stor Treen and therefore allowing you to eat/drink alfresco or inside (as it could a little chilly once the sun set) whilst enjoying the beautiful view. The lake had a number of islands which we were keen to investigate. We hired a couple of canoes and then spent 2 days on the water island hopping. Some of the larger islands had fire pits and when the fire ban (due to an extreme dry period) was lifted we went to one of the islands and used a fire pit to toast marshmallows. The lake is also home to a number beaver lodges. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any beavers but it was fun trying. Included in the price was the use of a small boat with an outboard motor. The owner’s son was kind enough to show me how to use it and how to navigate the channel from the boats mooring point to the main lake. This was great fun for us all and allowed us to explore further up the lake. It really enhanced our stay. Also include in the price was use of the sauna. The cabin also had access to a nearby fire pit that overlooked the lake. The owner, Björn and his family were very helpful and friendly, with Björn coming to the cabin and giving us information on the area, places to visit and walks to take. We would definitely recommend a stay here." Jarrod, Cabin Åtta August 2013

"Only one word word sums it up - brilliant!" Paul, July 2013

"Everything was perfect. Great communication and all necessary information was provided well in advance. Coming from London it was so nice to get away from it all. The peace and quiet was fantastic and the fresh air and amazing scenery were better than I expected. It is the best Holiday I have ever been on! Just loved every aspect of our holiday. The people were so friendly, the location was to die for and the experiences we had will never be forgotten. I am seriously considering buying a property in the area as a holiday house." Matthew, Moon Cabin, July 2013

"The location was excellent, the cabin was great and the fact that we didn't see anyone else all week on the forest trails was just amazing. Thanks for a great holiday and great accommodation." Kevin, March 2013 (Cabin Åtta is suitable for stays year-round)

"The area was remote and we hardly saw anybody on the walks we completed." Julie, January 2013 (Cabin Åtta is suitable for stays year-round)

"We had a fabulous time on our cabin holiday, it exceeded all of our expectations. The cabins were lovely and their location was absolutely superb. The kids loved playing in the lake and going for trips in the motorboat, while we enjoyed the sauna and the sunsets from the deck very much. Our hosts were very helpful and gave us great advice, helping us make the most of our time in such a beautiful place. We would definitely recommend Nature Travels and we plan on going on another of your holidays or perhaps returning to Värmland one day. I think your website under-sells the standard of the accommodation on this experience. We were expecting something more basic, particularly the studio style cabin for my parents. We were very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the cabins were. It was a fabulous holiday." Sean and family, Cabin Åtta August 2012

"It was a wonderful week - admin and assistance both in UK and Sweden were excellent. I would recommend this experience wholeheartedly! [The best part was] the beautiful location, peace and relaxation!" Jonathan, Moon cabin August 2012

"We were very pleased with our holiday and we were so chilled out. We have been all over the world and Sweden is the best holiday we have ever had. Easy to use website with lots of info, good value for money and all the staff have been very efficient, helpful and friendly. You all gave first class service. Everything just perfect - THANK YOU." Dave and Sandra, July 2012

"The cabin was in a wonderful forest location and the lake couldn't have been any nearer. It was extremely peaceful and we enjoyed sitting out on the veranda. Having access to the boat made our stay even better." Jackie, June 2012

"We had a fabulous holiday, thank you. We really had a fabulous time, the canoeing staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The canoeing and wild camping was fantastic, our 3 sons loved it (apart from the mosquitoes!), and the log cabin was wonderful, very quiet with just a little bit of rain. The log cabin was better than we expected in a stunning location. Never having been to Sweden before we didn't know what to expect and we were thrilled with what we found. Thank you for all your help. I will definitely be recommending Nature Travels and Sweden to our friends." Mishy, August 2011, who combined a stay at the Lakeside Cabin Retreat with our Canoe on Klarälven tour.

"We are now just returned from holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed. The cabin location was great and hosts helpful in terms of hiring fishing equipment and canoe.Also when the weather improved dramatically it was hotter than in UK and swimming in lake was a pleasure - unexpected! I would certainly return." Jennifer, July 2011

"Being on the very edge of the lake was wonderful! Our host and his son were extremely helpful and friendly.it's a wonderful place. Totally quiet and very relaxing! Excellent information provided (even food allergy translation sheet!) and very helpful staff at UK office." Patricia, July 2011

"Thank you, we had a very nice break. Location, accommodation and facilities were all good." Hugh and Jenny, June 2011

"Just to say thanks and to let you know we had a wonderful time in Sweden and to ask you to pass on our thanks to Björn for all of his help and for making it such fun. Until the next time!" Sue, New Year 2010/2011.

"We had a great holiday in Moon cabin and it is rare that one ever gets the quality of surroundings without having to share it! The lake and the surrounds were truly awesome and we managed to enjoy it to the full with the good weather.Thank you for your very good website and service, I look forward to booking another adventure through you again."
