    Snow melting floods

    Spring flood

    Because of the snow melting it can become quite high water levels in the rivers. This often happens in May and June when the large mass of snow in the mountains is melting.

    Some years this can even cause floods. Not normally something dangerous, but just be aware of the fast flooding water if you go near the rivers.

    Ice water

    If you are out driving snowmobile, skiing or walking in the forest, be aware of the small rivers that can be hidden under the deep snow. On many places the water path is so narrow so you will not see that it's flowing water below.

    If you are uncertain about how the ground looks like, follow the already used paths.
