Geocache Description:


Velkommen til en serie geocacher i Harry Holes Oslo

Dette er den sjuende cachen i serien. For mer informasjon om serien, se beskrivelsen av den første cachen.

Denne cachen er plassert i Holmenkollen, ikke så langt fra Holmenkollbakken. Mange viktige hendelser i den sjuende boka, Snømannen, foregår i nærheten, ikke minst en dramatisk sluttscene i tårnet på skihoppet. Rakel Fauke, Harrys kjæreste i mange av bøkene, og hennes sønn Oleg bor i et svart tømmerhus i Holmenkollveien i nærheten av Besserud, noe lengre nede i Holmenkollen. Akkurat hvilket hus det kan ha vært er vanskelig å si. I Holmenkollåsen kan man finne noen av Oslos største og dyreste boliger, mange med en fantastisk utsikt over byen. Like ved cachen ligger Scandic Holmenkollen Park hotel, som er ganske synlig fra vestilige deler av Oslo, og kraftig opplyst om natten.

Skihoppet ble ombygd mellom 2008 og 2010. Det meste av boken foregår i 2004 og bildet over viser hvordan skihoppet så ut da.

I nærheten av der cachen er plassert er det utsiktspunkter med flott utsikt over Oslo og over skiarenaen.

Filmen Snømannen som hadde premiere 13. oktober 2017 er basert på boken og inneholder noen scener fra hotellet i nærheten.

Cachen har ikke plass til noe. Ta med egen penn!




Welcome to the Harry Hole's Oslo series of geocaches

This is the seventh cache in the series. For a more information about the series, please see the description of the first cache.

This cache is located in Holmenkollen, not far from Holmenkollbakken, the ski jumping hill. Many important scenes in the seventh novel, The Snowman (Snømannen), happen nearby, including a dramatic ending scene in the tower of the ski jump. Rakel Fauke, Harry's girlfriend in many of the books, and her son Oleg, lives in a black timber house in Holmenkollveien, near Besserud, a bit further down in Holmenkollåsen. Exactly which house is difficult to say. Holmenkollåsen, the ridge, is a residential area where you'll find many of the city's largest and most expensive villas, many with a fantastic view over the city. Right by the cache lies Scandic Holmenkollen Park hotel, which is easy to see from western parts of Oslo, and brightly illuminated at night.

The ski jump was rebuilt between 2008 and 2010. Most of the novel takes place in 2004, and the picture above shows how the ski jump looked like then.

Not far from the cache location, you can have quite nice views of the city and of the ski arena.

The movie The Snowman released on 13 October 2017 is based on the book and includes some scenes from the nearby hotel.

The cache has no space for items. Bring your own pen!
