When the perfect day begins in the Vipilodge …
8:00 a.m.: Breakfast,with Canadian specialties: fresh smoked salmon and “Granberrys”
9:00 a.m.: Departure with the festive keel hose boat “Tury 2” . Snorkeling at Cerberus Rock under the guidance of Ingo the diving instructor. Snorkeling in the Kelpwald, together with seals that are always present and respectfully observe us. On the way back there is tea with “cookies”. Although the water is not so cold (17°) the hot tea does well.
Dolphins accompany our boat. Shortly before the jetty we stop at the bird island and observe the huge bird collonia.
12:30 p.m.: short coffee break in the lodge with other guests. Information is exchanged, useful tips are given, laughed and rumbling.
13:00: Take over a canoe and instructions for a small canoe tour with a hike directly on the island – starting from the lodge. After crossing the small bay in front of the lodge, the canoe is pulled ashore and moored. From now on we continue on foot, first on a path through the dense forest, then along the beach. On the offshore reef, the seals lie lazy and sunbathe. These are the guys you hear howling at night when the wind comes from the south/southwest. The White-headed Eagles must have somewhere a nest they accompany us constantly, watching us interested.
As we climb around a rock we surprise a deer cow with its boy.
After 3 hours we are back at the canoe and paddling over the bay back to the boathouse.
Shortly jump into the sea a bit of swimming (here in the bay the water has a pleasant 22 °) after that on the beach still eat a little fainting bite, not too much because we still want to go to the sauna.
17:00: the sauna has 80° and we are now looking forward to sweating and resting. How wonderful it is to do nothing more after our sports program. Between the sauna sessions in the quiet cottage next to the sauna, to listen to the forest and to dream, a little dozing, all this is possible.
20:00: Action again: Sundowner Tour with the fast festke inflatable boat. At mirror-smooth seaweed we drive around the wonderful island, past beaches, forests and small islands, stop here and there to observe eagles, seals and dolphins. On a small dreambeach we go ashore and drink our sundowner, watch as the sun sinks into the sea, again and again a great moment where the world seems to stand still.
But now it will be fresh, good that the return trip does not take so much time.
8:30 p.m.: Together with Ingo we turn on the campfire and activate the grill, tonight we make barbecue, juicy steaks and a cool beer. Everyone is hungry after the eventful day, everyone tells about their experiences and adventures. The later it becomes, the more adventurous the stories become, pure campfire romance.
The wind is favorable, so we hear the seals we had recently visited.
Let’s see what we do tomorrow, Ingo already had some very exciting ideas.
… or maybe just stay in the cosy log cabin and read a book in peace?
