Trekking to the far end of the world - Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Hidden away from the rest of the world, Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Patagonia, Chile is a beautiful gem that completely blew my mind during our 5 day trek last week. I still dream about it every night and can't wait to go back.

What is it about lighthouses?

I love lighthouses. And I know I'm not the only one. The attraction lighthouses has on me is equivalent to what lots of people feel when they see a brand new Aston Martin in the street or probably how a horse enthusiast feels when a proud Arabic horse is running across the fields in the sunset. There's something magic about them.

Green Adventures is not only about work. It's about a passion, not only for kayaking but for all the amazing things we can do in the outdoors. Last weekend I had a wonderful time on a mirror calm sea just outside my door step. fake rolex

Underneath rocky sea cliffs, in a cozy fisherman's hut

Another BCU 4 Star Training course has now taken place in Sweden. This time we traveled to the south of Sweden, to Kullaberg. This is a beautiful corner of the area called Scania, with spectacluar (with Swedish standards) sea cliffs, rocky beaches, lush forests surrounded by an interesting piece of sea water. Leif from Aterra had done some marketing for this course and he also joined us on the first day of the course to shoot some pictures. Some of the pictures below is Leif's work. Thank you Leif for taking the time to do this.

Nick made sure the gang of paddlers had to work hard during three days but is seemed to me that they really enjoyed what they had to do. I wasn't so sure we would get the right conditions for a 4 Star Training in the end of June, since it's supposed to be summertime with warm temperatures, light winds and lots of sun. But hey, was I wrong or what? We got three perfect days with really good sea state, pretty strong winds and we both had some sun and some rain. So it was a perfect time for giving the course.

Thank you Henrik, Paula, Zsuzsa and Gustav for good company and great laughs during these days. We truly hope you enjoyed the course and that you learned a few new skills from Nick. Hope to see you again soon! And thanks also to the kayak club in Helsingborg, Helsingborgskanotisterna, for letting us use their lovely club house for the Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planing course!

And for those who want to join us for some similar training like this, please check out our information about other 4 Star Training courses in Sweden here!

We also offer a few BCU 3 Star Training courses this summer on the west coast of Sweden. Check out this info!

If you click the pictures, they will be presented in a Light Box.

Zsuzsa took some major leaps during this course. Now she is ready for almost anything! ;-)

I joined the course so that I got the chance to do some dry suit swimming.

The Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning course was also included, so we spent a few hours with charts, guide books and tide tables.
