A day trip to take the hike around the island of Dyrön.
We decided to take the day off, enjoy the warm weather that finally came back and take a day hike.
There are many islands on the west coast you can easily reach with one of the ferries from the main land at the cost of a bus ticket. Such a good way to explore new places!
We decided for Dyrön, 15 minutes ferry ride outside Tjörn and it´s trail Dyröleden. Approximately 6 km around, but a lot of up and down hill, sometimes close to climbing, so the legs got good training!
The scenery! Amazing! It´s so beautiful you can hardly believe it, and a constantly changing view. Here we see the island of Åstol.
The trail took us to beautiful hidden bays with crystal clear water, through a small forest and high up on top of the island. But the most exciting part...
...was when the path took us down through this ravine, almost not shoulder wide at the most narrow part! Absolutely stunning!
When coming home, we were all pretty tired and very happy for a great experience. The rest of the evening we were hanging around on the terrace sipping freshly made black currant lemonade.
Summer in Scandinavia is short... Yet we set so many hopes and activities to the few weeks of outdoor life. There are not so many warm nights, not so many perfect days, there is no guarantee for sunshine or warm water… But still... the days that are perfect are AMAZING, BREATHTAKING and PRECIOUS!
Above are selected moments from our summer. Sweden is fantastic and we enjoyed this vacation just staying home, spending time with friends, long dinners with the family and magic swims in the ocean.
The energy level is filled up and I feel happy just looking at these photos. Moments. Breaths. Life.
