Geocache Description:

Cache is hidden on Bårddetjåhkkå close to Axel Hamberg's observatory. 1833m.

The cache is a small tupperware container.

Observe that the cache is placed inside Sarek National Park which is part of World Heritage Laponia.

Plan your trip carefully. You have to plan for at least 3 days of tough hiking and easy climbing (no ropes necessary). Establish basecamp at the foot of Bårddetjåhkkå situated 27 km from Kvikkjokk, which is the last outpost of civilization.

Reaching the summit is quite easy if you approach from the south. You may want to bring water during summer. Be prepared for a spectacular view if the weather is good. It is a minimum 4 hour roundtrip.

If you are fit you may want to try to get back to civilization the same day, otherwise you will have to spend a second night outdoor.

Beware that the weather conditions may change rapidly and be prepared for sub zero temperatures even during summer.

I will buy all visitors to this cache one or maybe two or more icecold beers at my favorite pub in Stockholm.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
