"Information was given very quickly! I had the feeling I could ask anytime, anything necessary. Great! The trip was in itself great. The variety of activities, the friendliness of people. Thank you and your team and most of all our host in Sweden for her friendliness." Tanja and family

"We found the information given [beforehand] very comprehensive. The local host was friendly and very thorough with her information, she couldn't have been more helpful. The bikes were good, route info excellent. Scenery was superb and the routes were lovely and quiet. We had a fabulous trip." Paul and Michelle, May/June 2018

"My family and I have just returned from the most amazing holiday. From start to finish our local host was fantastic - so professional, organised, knowledgeable and unflappable. Everything went like clockwork thanks to her attention to detail. She makes it look so easy (but we know it is not). She was so good with our kids too and helped to make it one of the best holidays we have ever had - active family time, hiking in great locations, wild camping, swimming in beautiful lakes, and canoeing in fantastic settings. Not to mention the lovely food organised for us (enough for an army!). Our accommodation was excellent. Anders and Nette in Malby could not have been more hospitable. Fantastic welcome on arrival with refreshing drink and snacks, a beautiful room with view, and a marvellous traditional Swedish evening meal and hearty breakfast. Anders educated us with his impressive historical knowledge and Nette was so generous with her time showing the kids the lovely ponies, dogs and new kittens. We would love to return someday. Our B∓B and host in Gnesta was also great. The kids (and parents) loved relaxing in the pool after days of hiking and cycling. Thank you so much for such a relaxing stay. Natures Travels were great in arranging the trip. Would definitely use again and have recommended to friends. Thanks again!" Eileen, August 2017

"I was pleased with how promptly all my questions were answered. I felt like we'd be in good hands on our trip. The bike and canoe day was the best. It was nice to ride through beautiful countryside, then picnic and get into a canoe that took us through 4 lakes." Sharon, June 2017

"Many thanks for your organisation of our wonderful holiday." Jacqueline, June 2017

"The notes on the route in combination with the maps and the practical bag on the bikes to keep them in were really good. [I chose Nature Travels because of] the way the trip was set up, the working ethics of your organisation and the dates of this tour that matched the time of my holiday were exactly what I was looking for." Katharina, June 2017

"[The best part was] all day canoeing with the tents set up at the end, with food to cook. Our local host was very helpful and friendly." Olivia, August 2016

"Great trip. The Swedish representative was very good. The highlight of the trip for me was the canoeing day with the camping at the end, beautiful spot for camping." Patricia, August 2016

"Our local host was brilliant. She inspired confidence and all little details were covered. [The highlight was] the dinner at Malby with hosts Anders and Nette. All details thought about." Keith, August 2016

"The best part of our trip for me was probably the hiking day along the Sörmlandsleden - it was beautiful despite the many beasties that kept biting me! For my partner it was probably the day spent canoeing - the lakes were lovely and the campsite we stayed on was fantastic and we were provided for and looked after fantastically. Our host was also fantastic and easy to get hold of, very helpful throughout the trip and I would like to thank all our accommodation hosts who were fantastic and very charismatic." Hannah and Mike, June 2016

"Offered exactly the holiday I was looking for. Paddling in the lakes and camping in the wild - most civilised camping experience. Our local rep was brilliant." Kathleen, September 2015

"Great scenery and palaces; mostly great weather; great accommodation at Manor House; friendly, helpful support from local host. We had a wonderful time. Thanks for a wonderful holiday - we love Sweden, even with the unexpected bath!" Norma, August 2015

"Canoe and hiking either side of a night under canvas created a great sense of being out in 'the wilderness'". Huw, August 2015

"Thank you for a phenomenal experience in Sweden." Karen, July 2015

"We had a super time on our adventures. The bikes, detailed maps and route planners were fabulous. Thank you. Our only suggestion is that the ‘Oldies’ doing the trails may need a little more than 1 hour for lunch and need a few more stops along the way! However, we are aware that if our sons (aged 23 and 24) had done this adventure they could easily have finished each days cycling by lunchtime! So it is a difficult task to predict how long each person in a group needs to complete their cycling. As you will see from some of the photos we were quite determined to do our Backgammon challenge too, which added on an hour to each day. For the record Nick won (just, by 12 games to 11). Thank you for the amazing holiday we will be recommending you to our friends (well the fitter ones, at least). P.S. I slept most of the way back to Stockholm on the steamer boat! Warmest wishes." Laura and Nick, June 2015

"Our local host attended to all our needs with helpfulness and cheerfulness (even when she had to make a second trip because we had made a mistake with our luggage). She fixed squeaky bikes, gave good vegetarian options and gave good advice. Written route instructions were excellent. Camping with everything prepared for our arrival was very special. We loved Anders' farmstead in Malby. His food and welcome was amazing." Catherine, August 2014

"A full day of walking through northern woods was a particular highlight. The overall mix of activities rather than simply hiking or cycling for multiple days was a fun combination. And we loved the steamship to Mariefried. We'd been planning to do a multi-activity holiday for some time, and were also looking to head north this year. An online search got me to the Nature Travels website and I needed to look no further. Our local host was great from the start to finish of our holiday - really helpful, clear and fun. Please send her our thanks!" Janet, September 2013

"We had a great time in Sweden and really enjoyed the 'hike, bike and paddle'. We enjoyed all aspects of the trip and found it a great way to get to know a new country (for us)." Janet, August 2013

"We had a wonderful time in Sweden. Our host was fantastic, friendly and ultra-helpful. Weather was great. Will be telling my friends with teenage children about this fantastic holiday. Thanks for your coordination and patience with my lost cheque!". Helen, July 2013

"Just to say we had a great holiday. Weather was very mixed but did not detract from our enjoyment. So thank you to you and Carmen, who was really great." Liz, July 2012

"It was a great experience and Carmen was wonderful. Thanks also to you for your help back at base, as it were! Excellent holiday. We have recommended the trip to others." Alison and Lesley, May 2012

"Thanks so much, we had a wonderful time in Sweden. [The highlight was] all of it! However, the half afternoon canoe trip was fantastic, through a series of beautiful lakes with not another soul in sight." Sarah, August 2011

"Carmen was an excellent local guide and she gave us very precise instructions. The accommodation in Malby was great." Louise, August 2011
