Customer Reviews of Backcountry Skiing and Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland:

"A superb week, helped by the first 3 sunny days, excellent guide and the experience of other members of the group, as I was the only new one to 'arctic' experience. Thank you all for a really enjoyable, rewarding and educational week!" Chris, April 2023

"There was a beautiful feeling of community that formed in the group. I truly can't imagine being any luckier. The scenery was just epic. Each day was better than the last. Our guide was an amazing leader. He was thoughtful, supportive, and you could just tell how much he cared. He made the community very welcoming. This was all especially appreciated since I was a novice: the encouragement and support I got from him and the rest of the team made me so much better than I could ever have become without." Heather, March 2023.

"We had an excellent guide and our group worked very well together. The skiing was exciting and the remoteness very enjoyable. It was a hard trip as decribed in your information, but a great experience." Joerg, March 2023

"Everything pre-departure was excellent: the amount of info about the trip, the ease of contact for further details, the email communications, the flexibility to work with our personal requirements. The highlights were numerous: the location and landscape, the weather we enjoyed, the easy relationship we quickly established with the guide, and the skills we learnt, especially the campcraft in the low temperatures. In 30 yrs of going to Scotland in the winter and the Alps in the summer, this is the first time we have actually hired a guide, and it proved to be a very good experience. Thank you for making it happen!" Clive, private tour, February 2023

"I had a great backcountry skiing trip with Nature Travels in northern Finland, superbly organised by Bob and his team and with expert local guides. For anyone wanting a taster of 'expedition' backcountry skiing treks, remote arctic wilderness and a healthy dose of living 'back to basics' then I'd thoroughly recommend this trip. Long days on the skis with packs and pulks but hugely rewarding, great views of the northern lights, and for our small group with a truly international mix, sharing our adventures in the comfort of stove-warmed huts at the end of each day. Attentive and timely input without fail from the NT team meant a very smooth trip from start to finish!" Dan, Halti tour, March 2022

"The beautiful landscapes were unparalleled." Mike, Lemmenjoki tour January 2022

"The guide was great fun and very knowledgeable and enhanced the whole experience especially the time spent in huts. Overall this was a fantastic experience with a brilliant guide although at times it was a physically a bit harder than I envisaged. I would rather that than being too easy as it added to the sense of accomplishment at the end." Ian, Halti tour, February 2020

"[The best part was] simply getting away from the unreal world for a week in a beautiful landscape." Alan, Halti tour, March 2019

"The guide was excellent. He made the trip special." Mark, Lemmenjoki tour, March 2019

"I thought it was a fabulous experience, whether in sun, snow, high winds, whiteouts or cabin life. The -40C in Lemmenjoki was a challenge, but the guide managed the situation perfectly." Roland, who combined the Lemmenjoki and Halti tours back-to-back, February 2019

"Summiting Halti with blue skies and great visibility was a fantastic moment. We were lucky to have two brilliant northern light displays. True wilderness experience - we loved it. The guide was very experienced, knowledgeable, helpful, amusing - great guy to lead a group who we had total confidence in." Martin, March 2018

"The skiing experience was great. A great guide and made the trip fantastic." Steven, Halti tour, February 2018

"[The highlights were] northern lights, the sauna, the natural beauty and satisfaction from the endurance." Richard, Lemmenjoki tour, New Year 2017/18
