Paddling in Kökar archipelago

Paddlers of Vihuri at Gustaf Dalen lighthouse

The week of paddling in Kökar archipelago is over. 5 members of Vihuri paddling club from Tampere was participating on this sea paddling trip to Åland. Sun was shining nearly all the time and the wind was gentle and allowed us to paddle on each day altogether 150 km.

We managed to visit on 2 lighthouses: Kökarsören and Gustaf Dalen. Bogskär daymark was on our way back from Gustaf Dalen to Husö island.

We enjoyed the hospitality of Monica and Christer, when they offered us a night at their summer cottage. Sleeping two nights at bed, having sauna, swimming and making pancakes on a open fire at cliffs with friendly and enjoyable company were more than we could expect. I would like to send my warmest greetings to Monica and Christer and thank on behalf of all of us. Great people in a lovely archipelago.

Christer and Monica
