This is the western of our two maps at a scale of 1:50,000 covering the whole Mälaren.
The map section for Västra Mälaren covers:
Västerås - Surahammar - Köping - Kungsör - Enköping - Härjarö - Strängnäs - Mariefred
It is as much a traditional Terrain map for hikers as a Sea and Coastal map for paddlers. We have done the same thorough work with local shorter hiking trails and the map covers, among other things, the Upplandsleden between Enköping and Härjare and the Bruksleden between Västerås-Surahammar and Västerås-Skultuna.
We have supplemented the content with important information for paddlers. It can be grounds and fairways, pre-archipelago traffic routes and other interesting services such as grocery stores and saunas in the archipelago.
We have chosen to offer Calazos maps of our paddling waters because we believe they are the best. They always do a thorough job and base the sections on the archipelagos and larger water systems. They also include the necessary information we need as paddlers, such as depth, channels, and interesting services like dry toilets, food stores and where to find a good sauna.
The fact that their maps are made of Tyvek® makes the choice even easier as it means the maps are completely water-insensitive and extremely tear-resistant. A Tyvek map will not fall apart or lose color when used.

Melker is a classic swedish name and it was the name of a well known character in Saltkråkan, a television show that started 1964 in Sweden. The script was written by Astrid lindgren Swedens most famous children author.
The series takes place in Stockholm archipelago and therefor it is something many swedes think about when they think about the archipelago.
We took the name Melker as a hommage to the Tv-series and see it as one of our missions to help people to great experiences on and by the water.
