The track can combine with GPS or smartphone phone used summertime to avoid because of the boat and in winter to avoid rocks or weak ice. Avoid the lines and the tour will be safer!

Holmsjön is regulated and dropped plenty of water in winter. Kart track has been made by snowmobile along the lake's shorelines winter. At the time (March 2008) the lake was lowered about 4 m compared with the water in summer. The country has a good margin of navigating the track to avoid because. Some of the excellent foundation can of course be on full deep enough yet to pass when the lake is full daylight.
