North of Sweden

Wednesday 9th Jan

We were entertained at the Factory tap in Kendal with an illustrated talk by Mike Hayward and Andrea Barr, relating their trip to the Lanio river in North Sweden.

Starting on arctic tundra by helicopter drop and  float down the Lanio river 240km, 8km up the Piipionjoki, and  Torne Alven to the  bifurcation then finally 53 km down the Tarendo river.  A total of 305km in 12 days. Were informed about wild tundra, mosquitoes, lavu, shelters,  the lack of other river users  an unexpected canyons and rapids that went on and on.

Next LCC lecture is on  Wed 6th Feb at the Factory Tap in Kendal 8pm Sea kayaking in Greenland.
