Press coverage of Back to Basics in Cosy Cabins:

"That night – as we lay tucked up in our gently bobbing beds, enjoying the view of the night sky through the cabin's huge windows – we all agree that this is the most unusual and idyllic place we've ever stayed." Penny Bunting, Green Adventures Travel

Customer Reviews of Back to Basics in Cosy Cabins:

"The floating cabin was totally awesome, could've stayed there a long time!" Tim, August 2017

"We loved staying on the floating cabin. It was such a peaceful place, with everything we needed on board. We loved swimming in the lake and exploring the lake by canoe. A really tranquil couple of days! Thomas was a great host and very welcoming. We also loved using the sauna on the shore." Lindsey, June 2017

"We couldn't have asked for more from our host and a particularly good moment was when he delivered some perfect fresh birch for us to whittle spoons from. Thomas has an excellent way of not being overbearing or fussy, but always around when you need him! We left glowing, it was one of the best family holidays we have ever had. Not sure what could have been improved at the camp." Tim, August 2016

"The area is beautiful, the cabin cosy and our host was very welcoming. We spent most of our time swimming, canoeing, cooking, fishing and of course relaxing in the sauna!" Gavin, August 2016

"[I chose this experience because] it looked amazing and was exactly what I look for in a holiday - thoughtful, authentic, adventurous and cultural experiences that are a bit out of the ordinary (off the beaten track) - the holiday exceeded my expectations." Danielle, July 2016

"Cabins were amazing." Naomi, June 2016

"The experience was superb - a very special place indeed! We all really enjoyed it and could happily have stayed longer. Our host was just excellent - so helpful and welcoming. And we were extremely lucky with the weather - blue skies every day!" Penny, August 2015

"Our local host was exceptional - looked after us very well." Rob, August 2015

"Great: we took canoes out! Went walking cooked, swam, sauna, if anything above expectations. Thomas has crafted a really beautiful place, with so much thought. Everything is well-made and well-equipped and he puts a lot of time and effort in. Best: the canoeing! Though I think our boys would say jumping in the lake then the sauna. Only downside was we lost track of dates and actually left a day early by mistake. When we got to Oslo we were gutted!" David, who combined Back to Basics with our Canoe on Rottnan experience, July 2015

"I think you guys did a very good job at providing information and responding to queries. The trip itself was amazing so we all had a great time especially the children. My 11-year-old daughter learnt how to light a fire using birch and my nine-year-old loved jumping into the river and lake at any opportunity. We kayaked 55km in 4 days so we had a great sense of achievement, despite it being really challenging for all of us. Then relaxing in the Cosy Cabin was a great way to finish." Mark, September 2014

"The atmosphere and environment was perfect for a real getting away from it all holiday. 5 days of swimming in a (warm!) lake, wood fired sauna, cooking in the open, and peaceful canoeing. Bliss! Our host was extremely helpful and friendly. We were looking for an eco-friendly, relaxing break in lovely surroundings, found Nature Travels on the internet, and it sounded great. Particularly pleased that we didn't need a car and you provided information about getting there by public transport. It's been a pleasure dealing with Nature Travels, all your information is clear and helpful on the website, and I had lots of helpful phonecalls too. Thank you for a lovely holiday!" Chris, August 2014

"Both experiences were fantastic, the hosts cared deeply about the experiences and checked regularly that we were OK and everything was in order." Alex, who combined Back to Basics in Cosy Cabins with our Discover Bushcraft for Families experience, August 2013

"Service was fast and friendly. I was really impressed!! Thanks so much, the service was brilliant, the accommodastion was delightful and we had a truly wonderful time. We have recommended it to anyone we meet!" July 2013

"Holiday was brilliant - the place is amazing and the owner really helpful. Very friendly and welcoming - we had the camp to ourselves for a couple of days, which was brilliant - very peaceful." Jayne, July 2012

"The site was fantastic and the website actually does not do it justice. At the same time, it is not ridiculously remote and is easy to find - although we found having a car made the trip stress free." Tim, July 2012
