Thin ice – Sandevattnet – in the wilderness Mountain Kynnefjäll

Kynnefjäll is a wilderness area in northern Bohuslän. There are plenty of moose, beaver and game birds such as capercaillie and black grouse. If you are lucky you can be in contact with wolves or hear them howling in the winter night. Among birds of pray you can see Golden Eagle and hear the Pygmy Owl and Boreal  Owl calling in the evening and night. Kynnefjäll is called “The Water Fjell” and is a paradise for skating. The lakes are more or less connected with each other in very long water systems, which make this area exotic to explore by skates and short walks in the boreal forest.
The 21st of December we experienced the total silence that prevails this time of the year.
The only sounds you could here was the mourning of the thin ice.

– Yes – the ice is thick enough!
