wieder am Brienzersee – on lake Brienzer again

I met Dave from hightide.ch first time last year in October, after having exchanged a few mails. We had a short paddle with his wife on lake Brienz . Yesterday we came together again, in order to paddle from Bönigen to Brienz. Unfortunately the forecast announced rain for most of the day – and that proved true…

Rain, wind, waves – the conditions were not too comfortable (the water temperature being about 12 degree Celsius). But we did the whole trip, and it became a quite special day. I’m more relaxed, when the sun is shining and the water temperatures are above 16 degrees Celsius, but to be “alone” in a small kayak on a Swiss mountain lake on a rainy day, seeing a big passenger boat from time to time, and otherwise only birds, is also a great experience.


The Giessbachfälle had much more water than in autumn, probably twice or more!


Have a look at the fantastic “Stimmung” on the lake in the afternoon:
