Over the hills and far again

On the way home from the bikepacking trip in Vindelfjällen two years ago we started planning the next similar outing. Fairly quickly Jämtland came up and the idea was to go last year. However, last September I was personally forbidden to be away from work due to an important audit and we were unable to reschedule it and the trip was postponed with a year. It isn't easy to find common time when everyone is middle aged and have lots of other responsibilites. Last week it we finally managed to go there, though.

The area north of Mikkelsörarna is pretty much mare incognita for me, so a trip there was to be expected. I even got a native friend to join me for a weekend trip.

Spelharu daymark

The Spelharu daymark is situated in Gullkrona Bay in the Archipelago Sea. I visited it in 2018.

Lyökki daymark

The Lyökki daymark is Finlands oldest still standing daymark and possibly the oldest still standing sea mark. I visited it in June 2018.
