Geocache Description:

Tervetuloa Hailuotoon!

Welcome to Hailuoto!

Hailuoto on Perämeren suurin saari, helmi Oulun edustalla. Maankohoamisen myötä Hailuodossa ovat yhdistyneet neljä saarta: Luoto, Syökari, Hanhinen ja Santonen, josta tämäkin purkki löytyy.

Hailuodon ainutlaatuiset maisemat houkuttelevat kulkemaan luonnossa ja mainioita retkeilyreittejä löytyy saaresta useita. Retkeilyreittien karttoja voit kysellä Oulu10 -virastotalosta.

Hailuotoon pääsee lautalla, joka on ilmainen. Lautta kulkee noin kerran tunnissa, kesäaikaan ja syksyn metsästyskaudella useammin. Tarkista lautta-aikataulut oheisesta linkistä: Aikataulut.
Talvella saareen pääsee näppärästi jäätietä pitkin.

Kätkö on teemoitettu metsästys- ja eräharrastuksen mukaan, ja olisi mukavaa jos vaihtotavaratkin liittyisivät teemaan jollain tavalla.

Lisätietoa Hailuodosta tarjoaa Wikipedia: Hailuoto

Hailuoto is the largest island on the Gulf of Bothnia, and its nature makes it unique in this area. Hailuoto is comprised of four different islands (Luoto, Syökari, Hanhinen and Santonen, last of which houses this cache) which have grown together due to post-glacial rebound.

The spectacular nature lures many travellers for hikes and birdwatching every year. You can find maps for the island's hiking trails in the Oulu10 service point in downtown Oulu.

Hailuoto is reachable by a free ferry that runs on average once in an hour. During summer and the hunting season in autumn the ferries run more frequently. Check the timetables here: Timetables.
In winter you can drive across the ice quite conveniently.

This cache is themed with hunting and outdoors activities. Please keep this in mind when placing items.
