Farewell to Lake Västra Silen

Now after an intensive period with guests on canoe tour the last group left us after 10 days at our Base Camp.  Lots of different program and as far as we know the group had a fine time. They left the Base Camp in very good condition, nice a clean but they had to work hard. Good discipline to separate the garbage for the dump. Thank you for taking care of nature for the future and welcome back another time.  From now in the middle of august on to end of September the canoe area will be rely empty only with a few canoers on tour. Good time for gathering mushroom and berries. After some days of rain the wilderness are also now full of fine mushroom right now.
The photo is from the last farewell to the lake from the 40 person group.

The two Moose Safari

After a whole day of climbing and Mountain Bike half of the Belgian group went to a Moose safari. The day before, as I told on the last info, we saw 31 deer, but on this trip we only found 13 deer but also two large Moose just a few meters from the buss. We try to call them and they came a bit closer just feeding of the small birch trees. We return to Base Camp in Risviken at Nordmarken Canoe Center just before full summer darkness with very fine Wilderness Experience.

Piece of cake.

After some hours hard work I stop cutting down timber for the winter.  Timber will be 3.-6 meter long and I have to cut all of it to small pieces. It will take some more hours to do that, but its OK, and I had a good saw but I think I will be a mackinsaw next year.

OK it’s a joke and not my timber. Sorry.

Happy group.

After some days with not so good weather for canoeing we finally got no wind, warm and no rain. The group who was our guests last year started canoe training before they start their journey canoeing in Nordmarken. A young team this time but with very good leaders who take great responsibility for the young canoers. Our leader Tor and Amanda show them all the small tricks how to handle and paddle canoes and how to start and land the canoe on shore.
