Hiking & Packrafting Adventures

e5 - Crossing the Alps from Germany to Italy

On this trip, we were hiking around 160 km from Germany to Italy. The difficult part was however not the distance but walking up and down a mountain on a daily base. The E5 initially starts from Konstanz (Germany) and ends in Verona (Italy). However, most hikers start the tour from Oberstdorf - since this is the part where you are actually in the Alps - and finish the tour in Meran.

Hiking on the Åland Islands

This weekend I went to Kökar, a Swedish speaking municipality with a population of 244 and is part of the Åland Islands (belonging to Finland) which are located between Finland and Sweden. The Åland islands can be reached by ferry from Turku within 2.5 hours.
