Customer Reviews of Cross Country Skiing in Hossa and Kalevala:

"It was excellent. My favourite part was being in wilderness, no one else about besides our group. In addition, our guide and trail groomer and the overnight hosts were wonderful. Accommodations and food and especially the saunas were great!" Andrew, March 2024

"Very good pre-departure information and service. The highlight was the silence and vast landscape of endless forest." Heike, March 2024

"The guide and track setter were brilliant and did a great job. The highlight was skiing through forests with the trees covered in snow." Robert, February 2024

"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, April 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, March 2023

"It was a well organised trip and I may well be back for more some day." Tony, March 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." Mary, February 2023

"The highlights were the forests, snow, Northern Lights and lovely guide. The guide was exceptional." Karen, February 2023

"Excellent experience in the Finland national parks. Well organised, safe and very welcoming Finnish hosts." Toby, February 2023

"The best part was meeting the other participants and locals. Learning about the area and its history. Our guide was amazing she really made the trip exceptional." Lucy, March 2022

"Another great trip and my fifth with Nature Travels. Thanks for arranging it, and a smooth transfer from Skiing in Eastern Finland. The weather was perfect, blue sky and sunshine all week. Our leader was very good, giving a good insight into the Finnish character and way of life. The food and accommodation were fine. Lunch sitting on reindeer skins around the fire was always a highlight, especially when there were sausages to cook. The skiing was not easy, as the cold nights and warm afternoons made for icy tracks. I very much hope there will be a summer trip, as I really want to also experience Finland without snow." Ros, March 2022, who combined this tour back-to-back with Cross Country Skiing in Eastern Finland.

"Overall, the tour was excellent: the organisation, guiding, equipment, accommodation, food and scenery were all way beyond my expectation. It was so good to ski on a small track, rather than the skating motorways that have taken over the Alps. I can recommend the train and bus route to Kajaani/Kuusamo, by the way. Cheap, green, good scenery and super trains." Ros, March 2020

"Excellent group dynamic and Finnish hosts, and interesting history along the border. No crowds, yay!!!" Alison, March 2020

"Very nice group, friendly local hosts and guides, responsible Nature Travels customer service. Good price for nice services. Loved it, thank you very much. Local guide service with multi country team was very nice. I used Nature Travels last year and liked the service and price." Name not supplied, March 2020

"Superb Finnish cross-country ski tour. This was my second skiing trip with Nature Travels who provide a much better-organised and personal service that the larger companies fail to provide. Highly recommended!" Sian, February 2020
