Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We hired both skis and skates from Hiking Travel on two separate days whilst visting Tampere and highly recommned them. They were very welcoming, knowledeagle and professional. We had a lot of fun on the lake and were given great advice on how to use the equippment in a relaxed and friendly way. Many thanks for giving us such a lovely experience.

Wonderful snow shoeing experience!
Our guide Leo was fantastic and wonderful with our 7y.o son, my son can be difficult and fussy sometimes and Leo was very engaging and gave him a wonderful experience and he wants to come back to Tampere because of him!
We did snowshoeing and was very fun and the campfire too.
You can do lots of other activities too like ice skating, sledding etc.
Highly recommended!

One stop shop for all outdoor needs for all seasons. Staff were helpful, safety conscious and knowledgeable. Equipment was good quality and reasonably priced. Excellent English spoken. Will definitely return.

Thanks for your review! Your stay hare couldn't have been at a better time for us. Pekka also thoroughly enjoyed your company and I also got to see you briefly on your way to Tampere-Pirkkala airport. Which, I have to say, is a smooth experience in itself, as you said so. Hope to see you. And maybe some friends along sometime in the future. We have a lot to offer. Also in the winter time. Br, Pekkas son Tapio

Terrible irresponsibility from HIT. Ski binding was insufficient and it came away during a down hill. I fell and broke my hand. After this I had to walk with the skies for 4 kilometres back to base. Once I returned and told what happened HIT employee just laughed that 'guess you went a little too fast'. No apologies were given from his behalf.

Later I tried to contact the owner without any luck. I'm disgusted about their way of handling things (well, actually by not handling).

By no means do not ever rent skies from this company. I have notified the importer that this renter doesn't provide ski equipment with adequate safety.

If you for some unfortunate reason got yourself hurt from whatever malfunction with rental equipment, don't waste your time reasoning with these people.

Communication worked out good, and the staff was very nice. Nice trip and overall very good experience. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to do a canoeing trip in Finnland.

Took a xc skiing lesson with Pekka. Very easy to communicate with them and they were very flexible with scheduling this lesson right before Christmas break. I could test some of the gear they had for rent during my lesson and got some valuable tips from my instructor that really served me well for the race I was training for. Although conditions weren’t ideal for xc skiing that day we made the most of the time and at the end of the lesson I got a nice hot chocolate from the cafe in the shop. It was really good customer service and the location is very convenient, besides the xc tracks.

Thank you for your most valuable and informative feedback. Pekka had true pleasure skiing with you. And judging from your words the lesson was beneficial for you. Hope you did well in the competition, that you trained for, and met your own goals.

Tuire, our red-headed girl liked having you as customers. The weather on your day of visit to us was really awesome for Autumn time. As you thought, there should be more people enjoying it on the waters also. It is good that you got to experience it. Cheers!

We rented kayaks for group and got very good guidance.

If you want to enjoy Finnish nature and try something new, this is great place to rent kayak/skates/fatbikes/SUPs etc!
