The movie shows, beside the travel itself, the emotions of a long time-out and spotlights – as already in part 1 – the ingenious navigational methods and the epic mythology of the Vikings.
In the Danish National Archives, the description of this old sea route is kept like a treasure. By coincidence Claus Aktoprak got aware of this itinerary and curiosity kicked in. This document, written by monks in Latin script, is one of the oldest and exiting sources about navigating the Baltic sea. It mentions many places which together forming - mostly sheltered by skerries - a sea route along the east coast of Sweden, over the Åland-islands and Southern-Finland to Reval (todays Tallinn). This sailing route, already used by Vikings, the 40-year-old sailboat LA MER auctioned at eBay and a kayak are the ingredients of this new Baltic sea adventure from Claus Aktoprak through the dreamlike archipelagos of Scandinavia.
