Faldsled Harbour, Fyn, Denmark 9am – I’m ready for the day’s 25km. Already at the start I meet several hikers that I know and have hiked with throughout the year. It can only be a great day!

We walk to Østrupgaard where we take a break and receive refreshments. Then it is on to the first camp at Holstenshuus. It is still very hot and difficult to fall asleep. We are awakened in the early hours of the morning when a lightning and thunder storm strikes.

The third time in Denmark. Fjällräven Classic Denmark offered a hiking experience on one of Denmarks’ most beautiful nature sights, the South Funen Archipelago-trail (Sydfynske Øhav – Øhavsstien). The hike had its starting point by the harbor of Faldsled and had a distance of 75 km, with the goal line at Valdemars Slot, on Tåsinge, near the town Svendborg.

Today we hiked down to Svendborg. Here I am treated for foot blisters. Just about everyone was suffering with them by this stage.
