Day I ARRIVAL, CANOE
Arrival, train from Stockholm to Läggesta. The guide meet the group at Läggesta station and help them get the right bus to Åkers Styckebruk (10 minutes with bus). Everyone get dry bags for the cloth, sleeping bag etc. We load the canoes, safety instructions and a short course, how to do the paddling best way. Start our tour along the shore with the sun in our face. Slow in the beginning make sure everyone get the right technique. After some hours it feels great to stop at some nice place and stretch our legs. Take something to eat and maybe a bath in the lake. Later we stop for lunch, a real meal made on the gas stove.
In the evening we find us a nice place for night camp. Put up our tents, making the fire and start making dinner together. Ending the day sitting around the fire locking at the stars.
Day II CANOE, DEPARTURE
Waking up close to the lake. Maybe start the day with a bath before breakfast. We pack all our stuff back in the canoes, leave no trace, and continue our journey. Today everyone is used to the canoe and can put more focus to the surroundings when following the shore line south. Once we need to stop and pull the canoe from one lake to the next. A small canoe wagon is very handy, we don’t need to carry. After several breaks and a nice lunch we reach Gnesta, our goal. An ice cream as reward before unload the canoes, arrange with the baggage and walk the 100 meters to the railway station and the train back towards Stockholm.
