    Day 9 - Sweden looking up (and down...)

    May 21, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Leaving Lulea for Pitea and avoiding another day on the miserable E4 meant drastically detouring and forming our longest route yet (estimated at 86km).

    On the plus side, the weather was beautiful and we were going to pass a nature reserve, so it was more of a 'touring' day than most.

    Sweden looks a lot more attractive when you get off their motorways. We were quickly surrounded by lakes, forests and men with unnecessarily large moustaches tending their (well spaced) gardens. Lunch was in the nature reserve, which we had to ourselves, on a field under the sun.

    It was hard going though, with constant hill climbs and equally steep descents. Also at one point, we hit unsealed, gravel track that proved pretty incompatible with our bikes.

    Eventually we made it to Pitea, having done over 90km because of detours around the E4, and arrived at our campsite...wedged between two industrial factories. Who says camping can't be glamorous?

    Von Härnösand - Pitea

    July 14, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Bei super Sonnenwetter sind wir über die Höga-Kusten-Brücke, weiter entlang der Hohen Küste, Umea bis zum kleinen Küstenort Pitea gefahren. Der Abstecher zur Elchfarm fiel wegen heftigem Gewitter und Starkregen buchstäblich ins Wasser. Aber am Abend in Pitea wieder herrlicher Sonnenschein.

    Sundsvall und Pitea

    June 5, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Wir fahren am Bottnischen Meerbusen entlang der E4 über Sundsvall nach Pitea. Der Dauerregen hat uns hier etwas eingeholt. Da macht man einfach mehr Kilometer und isst noch besser, es gibt auch noch Secco und Rose.

  • Day23


    May 29, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Um etwas schneller voran zu kommen, haben wir uns entschieden ein Teil der Strecke nach Norden über Schweden zu fahren, da man hier auch mal 100 km/h fahren darf :-D
    Hier haben wir dann endlich die ersten Rentiere gesichtet und einen sehr scheuen Elch, der sich sofort versteckt hatte, als wir angehalten haben. Was für ein Erlebnis solche schönen Tiere in der freien Wildbahn zu sehen und was für eine schöne Abendsonne dazu :-)

    Per ottenere un po'più veloce, abbiamo scelto di passare una parte del percorso verso nord attraverso la Svezia, perché qui poi guidare anche a volte 100 chilometri all'ora :-D
    Qui abbiamo finalmente individuato le prime renne e un alce molto timido, che si nascondeva subito, come ci siamo fermati. Che esperienza di vedere animali cosi belle nella probbia natura e ciò che un sole di sera bellissimo :-)
