The “Aareinseli” is a small, privately-owned island in the middle of the river Aare, just upstream of the Swiss town of Solothurn. The owners, who run a smallholding on the island, open the island to paying guests between May and September and offer an idyllic setting for social events: from a basic drinks reception to barbecues and overnight camping. Jo and I were invited to attend a wedding reception on the island and spent a lovely day with friends: swimming in the slow-moving river during the afternoon and enjoying the barbecue and party in the evening.
