Finland is known as “the land of a thousand lakes” and should also be known as “the land of thousands of geocaches” since it currently hosts 60,000 active geocaches, justifying their ranking as the happiest country in the world. 🙂

But something else bumps up Finland’s geo-happiness rating, and that’s the Porvoo GeoTour, GT7E. The country’s only official GeoTour is comprised of thirteen geocaches, each highlighting a different decade in the history of Finnish independence. There’s even a cache dedicated to the future!

One of the oldest cities in Finland, Porvoo was founded some 800 years ago. This idyllic small city retains much of its traditional nature, including the older buildings and cobblestone streets. Historically a center of trade due to its connection to the Gulf of Finland by the Porvoonjoki River, this area now inspires and is home for several Finnish artists.

So grab your passport, always bring a pen, and let’s adventure to the Porvoo GeoTour!
