Geocache Description:

Tämä helppo kätkö löytyy kansallispuiston pääsaarelta, tiedon lähteeltä! Saarelle pääset kesällä meloen tai veneellä, talvella retkiluistellen tai vaeltaen. Pieni purkki on sateelta suojassa ympäri vuoden.
This easy cache can be found from the main island of Linnansaari national park. You can reach the island by canoe or boat in summer and by skating or hiking during winter. Small cache is hidden from rain and wind.

Linnansaaren kansallispuisto keskellä Saimaaseen kuuluvaa Haukivettä on suomalaista järviluontoa parhaimmillaan. Linnansaaren kansallispuisto satoine saarineen ja suurine selkineen on vesiretkeilijän paratiisi. Saarien suojissa elelee Linnansaaren tunnetuin asukas - saimaannorppa. Lisäksi alueella pesii eräs Suomen tiheimmistä sääksikannoista. Kaskenpolttoon ja esivanhempiemme elämäntyyliin voi tutustua nähtävyydeksi kunnostetussa Linnansaaren torpassa, jonka lähiympäristöä hoidetaan perinteisin menetelmin.(Metsähallitus)
Linnansaari National Park in the middle of Lake Haukivesi, a part of greater Saimaa lake complex, represents Finnish lakeland at its best. With its hundreds of islands and broad open waters it is a paradise for boaters. The National Park offers possibilities for day trips, as well as for several days camping and boating holidays. Sheltered by the islands lives the most famous inhabitant of Linnansaari - the Saimaa Ringed Seal (Phoca hispida saimensis). Also one of the densest populations of the Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) lives in the area. In restored Linnansaari Croft you can find out about the life in the old times and the slash-and-burn agriculture. (Metsähallitus)
