This Frozen Swedish Lake Is Clear During The Winter, So This Is What The Locals Do On It
Skating over the clear ice at Blanktjarn Lake is at the top of my bucket list. As stunning as this video is, it's not the only time something like this has happened. Two friends made the news earlier in December when they posted a similar video of themselves walking across a transparent frozen lake in the High Tatras Mountains of Slovakia. People couldn't believe it was possible to walk on top of ice so crystal clear, but Tomas Nunuk, one of the hikers, insists it was 100% real. Before you try this at home, keep in mind that you should never walk on ice that's less than 2" thick. Four inch thickness is safe for any activities on foot, while a depth of 12"-15" can support even a medium size truck.
