Expedition Rogen

Last year, Vlado and I were planning a paddle trip around Rogen lake in Sweden, but because of fire danger we did not make it. The idea has been in my head till then, so when SuperKoma started  suggesting another trip to north with Dr. Love and Mr. Mara, the destination was obvious. Let's go to Rogen! Meanwhile SuperKoma made SuperBerta with Stepanka...so  Mr.Vit Snowhite took his place. We rented two canoes and hit "the road". Six nights in wild nature, around 10 portages (some of them longer than 500m) and around 50-60km of paddling. Good weather most of the time, some wind in all directions, great fishing, lack of beer, good mood...difficult to write more details, it was just perfect. Two men in one canoe make one body and one brain, real men doing real work. So remote and various landscape, so many stories. We got several trout over 1kg, one pike about 5kg, a lot of grayling (max 45cm), some nice perch and one char. At the end we were dreaming about not-fish meal and some beer - yes, we underestimated our beer suply and were without beer for 5 days...
Our trip and camps
The start in Käringsjöen

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere
around midnight
Small lakes
and big lakes...
Several tricky parts
and lovely places
Crossing the Rogen lake on calm water was just amazing
and last few meters...
This is the most funny portage...400m in the swamp
It is so great to have the opportunity to camp everywhere...
Fire was our good friend
another camping place
and the only one rainy day...
The turning point of our trip and last drops of plumb brandy...so sad moment
Culinary orgy every day

A typical lunch break
and dinner...
