Unfortunately in the days leading up to and during my visit, Stockholm was experiencing a "topical heatwave" with temperatures above freezing so there wasn't enough snow to go snowshoeing. However, the hike was still fantastic as was our guide, Patrick! We hiked in a lush green national park and even walked across a massive frozen lake which was such a surreal experience. I'll definitely be rebooking with Green Trails for all my adventures in the future.

We had a chance to move with Emily. She was very kind in giving us all possible information, not only about the animals of the place but also about the woods and the nature reserve where she took us. We have seen 5 moose, 2 hares and many deer !! Very emotional

Emily was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. Got to see a bunch of animals. Food was also great I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the experience.

Activity very well. The guide was pleasant and available. The atmosphere was very nice and we could actually see moose and other animals

They were very accomodating to change of bookings and providing all equipment. Thanks.
