Geocache Description:

We think this is the most challenging cache in Sweden! (well, when it was new at least...)

A multicache with three parts, each placed on a summit over 1900 meters (which is very high in Sweden). You need to be an experienced hiker with knowledge about the Kebnekaise area, and you must have tent and food for about eight days (if you plan to take every part on one tour, starting and ending in Nikkaloukta). You don't need any climbing equipment, but you can't suffer from vertigo.


The first part, on the summit of Koupertjåkka (1914m), is a small pipe-shaped container with plain coordinates for the next one. For this summit we recommend you to make a base camp in Kaskasavagge and do the climbing without heavy rucksacks. This is probably the most difficult of the three summits to climb. Rather boring but for the sake of safety, we must hint you that the container is in the cairn on the summit. The second part is of the same type as the first -- also in the cairn on the summit. The third and last part (in its own little cairn) is a ordinary tupperware container with: Pen, Log book, Linux penguin, travelbug (Hagar), candy (vingummin), a small book with wisdom (swedish).

All parts has its own code (like "A2"), and you shall mail all three codes to erik@math.uu.se when you are finished with the whole multicache.

All texts in this multicache is written in swedish, but it's likely possible to find all parts of the cache without knowledge in swedish -- but you must be well experienced with scandinavian mountains!

We strongly recommend you to bring the excellent book "På fjälltur, Kebnekaise och Abisko" which is the paper back version of "Vandra kungsleden 1" by Claes Grundsten".

Have a nice trip!
