    trip to/in nature

    I would like to know which preposition to use, for example, when I say "I like going on trips to/in nature". Is nature the right word at all?

    I am afraid not, We simply fo not have an equivalent in English for this expression that so many European languages have. We need to use more specific expression such as 'to the mountains/country/sea, etc. When we are 'in the nature' we can say we are 'outdoors, in the great outdoors, in the fresh air'.
