Day trip in the home archipelago @ Värmdö
We took a day trip in the home archipelago on Värmdö. Absolutely magical conditions with wrinkle-free water, minimal boats and not a cloud on the horizon.
During the spring winter, you have almost the entire archipelago to yourself, we could count the boats on one hand, the more swans.
We found a cozy island with a small sandy beach and sparse trees, perfect for both hammock and tent.
It was also a turn past the Grand Hotel in Saltsjöbaden, but the bubble on the veranda will have to wait another week or so.
Ulvön top tested
Paddling Magazine in the USA toptests Ulvön;
"...The Ulvon HV deftly blends the long waterline, minimal rocker and sleek dimensions of a speed-centric kayak with a more play-oriented shallow-V hull and semi-hard chines. Loaded, it behaves as an expedition kayak should, very stable, comfortable and predictable..."
Melker Ulvön is a very easy-to-drive expedition kayak designed with inspiration from surfskis. The long waterline provides high cruising speed while the bow volume provides outstanding performance for downwind paddling and surfing.
