Geocache Description:

Hidden by the main square of Pyramiden (The Pyramid), a Soviet mining town about 50 km north of Longyearbyen on Svalbard that was abandoned in 1998.
The terrain is actually really simple, but involves a snowmobile trip of several hours, thus the high rating.

The cache is a small food container box. Contents include log book, pencil, geocache note in English and Russian and, at time of placement, two trade items.
Accessible by winter when you can drive snowmobile all the way. On summer you travel by boat to the docks at Pyramiden, then it's about 1 km to the square.
The cache was restored in April 2014 and adopted from arohlen to tannenwald.
