Wilderness Canoe Trip – Part 3. Sweden. Windy Crossing of the Mighty Lake Rogen. Wild Camping.

In this video, part 3 in the series, Andy (Kent Survival) and continue our adventure in the wilds of Sweden and Norway.

We leave our overnight camp spot after fuelling up on blueberry pancakes and bacon and begin the long, rocky portage down to lake Rogen – a big lake that will take us across to Norway.

Our paddle starts off well with a gentle headwind as we head along the inlet and towards the main expanse of the lake itself. Once around the headland though, things take a different course and we are faced with a tough paddle into the wind for the rest of the day – hour after long hour.

Finally, exhausted, we reach the southern shore and find a place to set up camp for our third night in Sweden. And luck was on our side this time – third time lucky – we find an official camp spot with a fire pit, a rock shelter and firewood. We deserved it this day!

I hope you enjoy the video,

Thanks for watching.
