Adventures

Among hundreds of islands At Kajaktiv in Bleket on Tjörn, you can take a course in canoeing, Kajaktiv also offers guided paddle tours or private tours and has sales of kayaks and equipment. Everyone can go out and enjoy the salty winds and glide through Tjörn’s beautiful nature. See the rugged landscape towards Pater Noster, the famous islands of Åstol and Klädesholmen. The possibilities are many, and it is only your imagination that sets the boundaries. Whatever route you choose, you will have a memorable experience. During a full day of guided tours, you can paddle along the traditional fishing villages and explore the shallow bays. Explore where only a kayak can reach or go out among the islands and look for the curious seals, who often find you as exciting as we think they are. Slide-in at one

of the hundreds of islands and have a refreshing dip and eat your complementary lunch bag. Owner Patrik Forsling tells us: - Everyone can paddle, but some tips and tricks will make your paddling both fun and safe. We offer courses for beginners but also for those who have more experience and want to develop your canoeing. Kayaking on the west coast is lovely. Find your strawberry spot around one of the thousands of islands the coast has to offer. Launch the kayak directly from Kajaktiv’s jetty, and you are in Sweden’s most excellent paddle water right away. Bleketvägen 42, Bleket, Tjörn www.kajaktivtjorn.se

Upperud Upperud 9:9 is a family run hotel by Dalsland’s canal in south-west Sweden. The tall building is a hundred year old grain silo, which has been carefully transformed into an inspiring place to stay, enjoy great local food, go swimming, paddling or fishing from the jetty, or perhaps hire out the whole venue for your own private party/conference. At Upperud 9:9 there are also regular concerts and pub nights with live bands, creating a real meeting point for both locals and visitors.  The five individual hotel rooms are nestled into original exposed structures where you can still find a grain of wheat or rye in the gaps between the planks. French balconies let in the crisp Scandinavian light and stunning views over water in all directions.  High ceilings allow for the upstairs lofts where you can rest on comfortable beds in natural materials. Art and design evoke the simplicity.  Dalsland’s beautiful pilgrim trail passes right by Upperud. Many guests are keen to experience the woods on foot, hiking the 45 km to the next hotel along the trail, Edsleskogs Wärdshus. Sleeping in tents or in prepared campsites along the way and enjoying the changing terrain and landscape with many small lakes, hills with viewpoints and the pure wilderness.  Upperud 9, Åsensbruk. www.upperud.se MAGAZINE SWEDEN
