Paddle together – Sweden

Paddle together – Sweden

A canoe-built-for-two can be the most romantic of transport

"Don't worry that guides call double-kayaks 'divorce boats' - a canoe-built-for-two can be the most romantic of transport.

"Head for Sweden and go island-hopping in the archipelago of sea islands that dot the Baltic coast, or head up the rivers and on to the huge lakes that lie inland.

"Pierre Egholt rents equipment from his kayaking centre at Björkvik Bay on Ingarö island (www.kajakeriet.com). To one side there are open seas, remote beaches and islands, on the other are protected waters and islets that can only be reached by kayak, allowing for trips of a few hours, several days or a week.

"Double-kayaks (the decked-over 'Eskimo' kind) are more sea-worthy but require a bit more expertise than Canadian canoes. Usefully, though, the latter can carry a greater payload of bubbly, candles and bedding if you're going to create your own alfresco bridal suite (dry bags are a must!).

"Isolation hunters can find their own, private isle to camp on - theAllemansrätten, or 'Every Man's Right', allows camping almost anywhere. Depending on how far north you venture, there might be wolves, elk, reindeer and eagles to keep you company."

Jasper Winn, author of Paddle: A Long Way Around Ireland (Sort of Books)
