avalon

Hey, I'm Anna and my Onak's name is Avalon. I'm a dutch artist who loves to go paddling. As I am the happy owner of an Onak you are free to contact me to try it out yourself. 

the wonderfull Stora Gla

I did this with my ONAK canoe

As we were in Varmland, Sweden, we really wanted to see the natural reserve Glaskogen. So with the Onak folded up in the car we visited the information centre. If you  want to stay overnight in this area you need the Glaskogen card. It's only 50 sek a night (per person) and they use this money to keep this beautiful nature reserve healthy.

It was so quiet, maybe because of the extreme drought, even most animals hardly made a sound. 
We saw other canoeists, but everyone stayed on there one, so we could really enjoy the outdoor experience. On this side of the lake we did not see any houses or cabins. 

I must say, camping in the wild for the first time in my life (2 nights here in Glaskogen and 4 near Arvika) was a great experience!  I love it better than any campsite I ever visited, though I craved for fresh vegetables and fruit. I think I need to boost my food finding skills. 
 

Camping and paddling Glasfjorden

I did this with my ONAK canoe

We went paddling and camping on Glasfjorden and the verry pretty little lake Stora Lesjön. Such a marvelous landscape! Wide views, high rocks covered in moss and little islands with pines and blueberries. At the moment it was extremely dry, so campfires where banned, and cooking only allowed on the shore near the water. Still, we had a great time! 

Heiligerbergerbeek Amersfoort

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Last week I went paddling on the Heiligerbergerbeek two times. It's such a beautiful place, It's so very green. And from my house it's just ten minutes by bike! I have been paddling with Jeroen and the second time with my mom. Both enjoyed it very much! 

maiden voyage 

I did this with my ONAK canoe

Today my Avalon had her maiden voyage. Just my regular wednesday evening round starting from the canoe club in Amersfoort. My mom and I paddled around an hour over the Eem. Afterwards I paddled solo to the city, as I found a group of fellow paddlers enjoying some very good ice-cream, I joined them. So I didn’t get to the city center, well maybe next time :) 

The first photo is my mom, the other is my canoe instructor who wanted to try it out, of course :)
