Canoeing Södermanland

Place: Åkers Styckebruk-Vagnhärad, Södermanland, Sweden
Time: 5 days in July
I've already enjoyed The Sörmland Trail (Sörmlandsleden) by foot but now its time to do it by canoe. The planned stretch is 44 km long and goes Åkers Styckebruk-Gnesta-Vagnhärad. I'm doing this trip together with a dear friend and a dog. We rent a canoe at Kanotkungen in Åkers Styckebruk.
The route require some lifting so a little trolley is also brought on the trip. Unfortunately we had one more travel partner on this trip; the heavy summer rain. But at least the evenings and nights doesn't rain. But the upside of this weather is that we are all alone out here. No humans, but a lot of nice wildlife. We get to see a lot of birds and also a close encounter with a moose. We don't have any trouble finding nice places to put our tent along the water stretch. Despite the heavy rain we had a really nice trip in the beautiful Södermanland.
