We will be spending our time in the forest of Skåne, in southern Sweden, hiking in Söderåsen National Park and then canoeing on the Rönne river.
The walking tracks through the Skåne forest are like a scene from a fairy tale and the river Rönne, where we will be canoeing, wanders through fields and forests full of birds and animals who watch as you go past. There are a few gentle rapids to add some excitement and challenge.
There’s a chance of ending up in the water but it’s not deep and it’s part of the fun;)
We will start canoeing from Djupadahls Molla and finish at Søderåsnes BK. The whole trip will take us about 5-5,5 hours with a pleasant stop by the river for a midday meditation and picnic lunch. There are a few gentle rapids along the way so there will be a little excitement. It’s a good day’s exercise so participants should at least have a moderate to good state of health. There is nice swimming and the water is quite mild. Bring your hat, sun cream and swim suit.
We will be camping at the rest area Søderåsens BK. There are toilets, wind shelters and fire places available. Be sure to bring your own tent, sleeping bag and warm clothes. In case of rain it is good to have a water proof jacket also.
We’ll be spending our days out in nature but keep time in the mornings and evenings for meditation, chanting and yoga exercises. After dinner we can share music and games , have late nights talking and singing by the fire, count stars or swim in the river nearby.
If you need some guidance with meditation there are always experienced teachers to help.
