Paddling on the Achterwasser

Usedom. With an average of 1906 hours of sunshine per year, the island in the Baltic Sea is quite rightly considered “Germany’s sunshine island”!
After the long winter months, Usedom is, therefore, our first choice to recharge the sun and boost vitamin D production.

Paddle Tour Leipzig

City tours are not really ours – at least when it comes to my friend Christian. He is more of the adventurous type. He can not stroll … and being dragged past shopping windows on his long arm … hm … that’s not for me.

But on this sunny Saturday we want to combine action and city feeling in a micro-adventure. How? With a paddle tour in the middle of Leipzig!

Hydration Bladder

About two liters of fluid should be consumed by one adult per day. On days with particularly high physical stress even more.
When walking, paddling, jogging or other activities outdoors, you can see increasingly people with hydration bladders.

Down feather

Down are small, very soft feathers. In most bird species, they grow under the visible feathers as an undergarment, ensuring optimum isolation of the bird from heat and cold.

Sleeping bag

Sleep is vital. Especially after physical exertion, the body needs sleep to recharge – and that’s exactly why you need a suitable sleeping bag.

Here are the key criteria to look for when choosing the right sleeping bag for your adventure.

Climbing on the Greifensteine

Climbing on the Greifensteine has a long tradition – already 100 years ago, climbers got to work on the rocks. At that time it was still mainly about the preparation for larger tours in the Alps, today are officially six of the seven Greifensteine as an independent climbing area.

Paddling beyond the Arctic Circle

Every year, the orcas head south off the coast of Norway. They follow the herring swarms along the Gulf Stream up to their spawning areas at the height of Ålesund.
The proximity to the mainland offers the unique opportunity to see the whales in their natural habitat.
… and that ‘s what we want to do – but not with a whale – watching boat, but with our own kayak …

Failure as a chance

We love success stories.
Stories of people who, despite a multitude of obstacles, made it to the top. Stories of radiant winners on the podium, Oscar winners, and first ascenders …
“They did it!”

Paddling on the Saale

“What is a canoe pass?”
We paddle towards the track. My heart is racing. Suddenly the boat nose stabs down. As in slow motion, I feel like we’re slowly tipping over the edge. I cling desperately to the paddle. Zack! A monster wave spills over us…

from Tromsø to Narvik Day 13

Today is the last day of our trip. The paddling goes quite easy. On the one hand, because we have good weather – on the other hand, after 12 days on the water, we just got used to the strain.
