THE TRANSPORT

Hobie have developed the Mirage Drive, a propulsion system similar to the way penguins swim. Enabling leg muscles to drive the kayak forwards efficiently and quickly. I'll be using a Mirage Adventure (slightly longer than the kayak pictured)

The first time I sat in a Hobie kayak was next to a dock in Oslo, Norway, minutes before beginning this journey just 16 days after its inception.

 

A wonderful trip followed, covering 49 days, the west Swedish coastline, the Sweden-splitting Gota Canal, an open water dash across the Baltic and a glorious island-hopping finale into Helsinki, Finland.

 

For a first-time visitor to Scandinavia, this was a journey full of natural riches, using a form of transport so deliciously simple and enjoyable.
