Our Lake Tracks

Icemakers offer lake ice track areas on Lake Kakel, 8 kilometers east of central Arjeplog. Lake Kakel itself is a part of the 70 kilometer long Lake Hornavan, Sweden's deepest lake with a maximum depth of 221 meters.

The two lakes are separated today by the island Gallesgutj and the public road connecting the two sides of Lake Hornavan.

Icemakers have been preparing tracks here for decades now. Over the years, we have accumulated all the necessary experience and know-how to be able to provide tailor-made ice tracks customized to the specific requests of our clients.

We also have our own standard track layout consisting of:

  • A straight track with a polished ice section
  • Two handling courses with different layouts
  • A circular track

Tracks are always prepared and ready for use from early January at the latest. The testing grounds are reached by car within 10 minutes from Arjeplog town and Icemakers HQ at Maskinvägen.
