The 41-year-old actor, who is among the frontrunners for the Best Actor trophy at the Oscars for "The Revenant", is set to embark on a 10-day journey to Lake Hovsgol, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"When I do these trips. I take people out of their comfort zone in terms of the inner journey and get them doing things they normally wouldn't do," New York Post quoted Swedish explorer Johan Ernst Nilson, who will lead the expedition as saying.

"If you push your limits, the reward will be much higher. It's going to be amazing," he added.
