Storm approaching | Sarek National Park | Sweden, 2009

Before setting out, always check the latest weather forecast.

In case conditions take a turn for the worse, you need to be aware of your options in regards to:

  • Possible evacuation routes.
  • Emergency shelters or campsites.
  • River crossings that may become impassable during heavy rains.
  • Canyons which may pose a flash flood danger in the event of a sudden downpour.
  • Exposed areas such as treeless ridgelines……….whereabouts can you descend if an electrical storm is approaching?
