Trekking in Mountainous and Subarctic Regions

A micro-adventure in my own backyard

1 Comment

A micro-adventure on a beautiful summer day in my own village: first 12 km of packrafting on the river Leie (from Leiepark to the E40 bridge and then back to the public jetty in Sint-Martens-Latem), followed by a return hike through the woods and meadows of the “Latemse Meersen” nature reserve and the posh residential area of Deurle. The whole tour took about 5 hours to complete.

The map shows the packrafting part (in red), the hiking part (in blue), and another packrafting trip (in pink) of 6.5 km back and forth the next day.

Video footage of the first day is below. Note that I don’t have an action cam of any kind. Don’t ask me therefore about the utterly clumsy procedure I had to go through to capture this stuff…
