Some of the last entusiasts

Right now there are more mushrooms and berries than canoers in Nordmarken. This small group is back. Some was here several years ago and now they are out for a fishing and canoe tour.
The temperature in the water are getting lower and lower every day so the fishing gets better and better. I wish them in Swedish “Skit fiske” a word we fishermen use to let our guests have a good fishing and time in the wilderness.
This afternoon we got some more guests and we now have folks from Germany, Norway, Portugal and Sweden  so a bit international at Nordmarken Canoe Center this week.

A very long canoe tour 15 days.WOW

This gentleman came back to day after a 15 day long canoe tour around in Nordmarken. He has made a lot of the smaller lakes and narrow rivers in the area after information from us when we planned his solo tour.

When he passed Stora Bör there wear a lot of canoers on many island with their red tents from a large German Company who claim there are more than 80 Island at that lake but it´s a dream.

Due to some severe wind he made a good decision to day. Alone in a canoe with heavy wind it´s not a good option, so he took the canoe wheels and hike the road for 12 kilometre back Base Camp.
After so long tour he really enjoyed our Bed & Breakfast for a couple of days.  After some serious feedback from him about the tour, he mention that the one who teach me to paddle in 1957  late Stefan Henning, had been a good friend of him, so the conversation went on about The Macfie Canoe Club, some of our common friends in Holland with Bushcraft and Survival .

Stefan Henning and I made a lot of canoe tours together and even a winter expedition to Svartisen I Norway.  It’s good to have time to sit back and have nice talks with customer.
