#1: The Confluence from 20 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

05-Jul-2017 -- Actually, we walked 1800 km from Zurich to Sweden to visit this confluence point, see the initiary of our hike. But to be honest – visiting this confluence point was only a nice side-effect on our way to the North Cape.

The night before confluence day, we reached the town Kungälv, which is famous for its Bohus Fortress.

On confluence day, we hiked through the spruce forests north of Kungälv and passed this confluence by only 2 km. So we decided to make the deviation and visit the point.

An unsealed road comes as close as 55 m to the confluence point. To cover these remaining 55 m the confluence hunter has to ascend and climb through uneven terrain over rocks and some fallen tree trunks. The exact location is in spruce forest with a cover consisting of moss and grass.

After one hour, we were on our route towards the north again. We spent the night in an Air B&B on a remote island in a park called “Svartendalens Natur- och Friluftsomrade”.
