The Robinson Crusoe tour

Ready for adventure

I packed my backpack to the packraft and took off towards the Island Stora Aspön in the archipelago of Northern Vättern. It was windy and I was the only person out this day…

After about 6km of paddling I arrived, packed the packraft, had some coffee and started hiking.

Stora Aspön is the bigger of two islands with the same name although the other one is called Lilla Aspön. Both islands have prepared and marked hiking trails.

4 kg packraft including paddle and lifewest. The rest is food… 

I felt like Robinson Crusoe on a deserted Island. Although I wasn’t alone! There where plenty of marks from wild boar and poo from rabbit and dear. I didn’t see any animals though, but birds were singing during the whole hike.

There has been people living on this Island from at least the 17th Century. 

Someone had a small hut over here…
