During the last two months we have had an active club with 5 events.
72 people from almost 14 countries joined us and celebrated the beautiful autumn in Sweden.
We were on Mälaren in kayaks and Canoes twice,

on the ropes and zipline (Björnö höghödsbana) once,

went around Björnö

and picked mushrroms and learned about them in the woods around Erikslund.

On Friday we will do our last planned activity for this season which is the 25 km walk from Skultuna Church back to Västerås on a trekking path called Bruksleden.
Thank you all for your smiles, good moods and participation.

Rookie Hike 2013-02-02

Hi everybody! Old and new Members!

Happy New Semester!

On Saturday the 2nd we will go to Björnö, an island near Västerås. There we will go for a walk, ice skate and go sledging. We will have a small bbq as well -Yes we BBQ in winter too!- before taking shelter at the café there.
The aim of this activity will be to present you the Hiking Club and how you can get involve, at the same time we will show you that weather is not a hinder to enjoy the outdoor life in Sweden! And of course it is an opportunity to meet others!

How to get there?
It is possible to walk there or bike but then you should leave quite early.
Bus number 15 in the direction of 'öster mälarstrand' goes there. you should get out at 'stadsträdgården' From there it is a short walk to Björnö.
Here is the timetable:
We will meet at 10:20 at the train station so you can get your bus ticket. (you're more than welcome to buy it before)

What to bring?
WARM clothes! If you got ski pants and jackets, that's great!
Think like an onion! Put layers on!
Don't forget your hat and gloves. And warm socks!!
Bring a snack and water.
Bring a pair of ice skates!
You can buy cheap ones at the 2nd hand shops in town like myrorna! They cost around 75 crowns.
It is possible to rent some at Team Sportia. They are located in Igor, the shopping center on Vasagatan.

What NOT to bring?
We will take care of the BBQ. So you don't need to bring anything. :) Please send me a pm if you are vegetarian or don't eat pork so I get an idea of how much food I'll need to buy.
We will bring the sledges as well.

Alla helgons dag (All Saints Day) Saturday Nov 3

Hi all
This is not something which you want to miss!
On Saturday evening there willbe at least one cancle or somekind of light on almost all graves in Sweden. Amazing view in the grave yards.
I think we start our trip from school (point A). walk to the church near (point B) then we walk back to the city go by the grave yard near school and river and then finish our trip in the grave yard near point C.
It says 8 km but count on 10 km. 3 hours. because we would stay in each and every point to OBSERVE and take pictures.
We can start at 15:00 to make sure we get the chance to see the moon which is appear 71% on Saturday and see the lights in the dark.
warm clothes and good humor and some snacks. Candles if you want to contribute would be very proper.
Please read about ot ask about the traditions in Sweden how to act in a grave yard so that we do not do anything insulting. There will be a lot of local people in each grave yard.
looking forward to see you.
