"The guide was first rate. The food and accommodation better than expected. I've been with you before and I found everyone very helpful." Paul, February 2019

"There are so many good things to say, but I think to mention our guide was the most important, to make the trip unforgettable. The scenery, silence, all the nice saunas, dip into the ice hole..." Dorthe

"The trip was amazing and you have all been lovely to deal with - thank you!" Maddy, January 2019. You can also read Maddy's blog article about her Finnish sauna experience during the trip.

"On Saturday I came back from a week of snowshoeing in the Hossa Nature Park and it was the most amazing holiday. The snowshoeing was fantastic, it was very much like walking through winter wonderland. The daily saunas and open fires for lunch breaks were highlights of the trip. Rolling in the snow or cooling down in an ice hole after the sauna is quite a, surprisingly pleasant and exhilarating, experience. Our "regular" guide Petri as well as the "trainee" guide Tabitha were very professional, knowledgeable, passionate about the trip and had a great sense of humour - true ambassadors of Finland, which made the trip even more enjoyable. All the huts were cosy and very warm. The vegetarian food was good, varied and more than enough. Thank you for this wonderful trip - I will be back to Hossa." Heike

"Enjoyed the whole experience, being part of a lovely group, the walk, 'the blanket of snow' lunch over an open fire, saunas in the evening and sharing an evening meal with the group. The guide was also excellent. I liked the Nature Travels profile and the fact that your focus is on the Scandinavian countries only." Ann

"Simply thank you for your great organization of your great team, from the 1st second of my click for getting in connection with Nature Travels. Thank you for your quick answers to my simple questions. Now returned in my tiny rainy country I'm in a whirlpool of emotions, colour, quietness.thanks to this harmonious trip. During 1 week I've left my soft cosy day to day life to find another way of life emanating determination to live in connection with nature. Excellent authenticity/tempo of snowshoeing off the beaten tracks. Visit to the reindeer farm: nice experience allowing us to get involved in Finnish activity. Food: varied and rich in curiosity. I wanted to try snowshoeing and I'm delighted. Our guide was a great ambassador of his beloved country." Claire

"The trip was really good and the guide was very good and very informative. Apparently this group did a first with this guide, we cut a hole in the ice and went ice swimming (we dipped in to the water up to our necks!)" Robert
