Information about the lake: The lake is located in the high fell range. The elevation is around 800 meters above sea level. The lake location is far away from any settlement, so it is a genuine wilderness lake. Distance to the nearest road is about 45 km! This lake inhabits only Arctic Char! 

Weather in the fell region is very unpredictable and can change rapidly. This may influence the snowmobile transportation schedules. 
This means that in the worst case scenario we might have to stay in the mountains for an extra night. Regarding that we will always have emergency nutrition and all necessary emergency equipment with us.
