Kayaking in the fog

The first kayak trip of the year went to the island of Valö. It is located in the south part of Göteborg Archipelago. Kayaking in Sweden has been a struggle this year. The winter has been really long and most parts of the coastline has been covered with ice. So it is a late premiere. It was a really windy paddling to Valö. Even if the distance is just 12 km I thought it was really hard. The trip back to Göteborg was really nice. A light breeze in the back and a nice fog that made the trip more adventurous.

Patric is having a rest, protected from the wind. When we left Göteborg is was sunny but it was just about to change…

Eric and Pia is having a rest on our way back to Göteborg

The best part of Valö is that we as members of the Göteborg Canoing Association have access to the lighthouse and the cabins. Some of the Cabins have a stove which makes the staying more comfortable. We had rain mixed with snow during sunday afternoon. Then it felt good that we had left the tents back home.

A video clip from the trip. Erik and Pia was already at Valö when we arrived.

Now I’m off for some cross country skiing in the mountains further north of Sweden.
