Geocache Description:

This cache is placed in a mine called Stenebo storgruva (or Nömåsa gruva).

The coordinates to this cache do not directly lead you to the cache. You have to follow the instructions below to find the cache. Be careful and read the warning note below.


The coordinates N 58 04.604 E 16 22.253 lead you to the entrance of a mine. Enter the mine and follow the tunnel for about 80 meters (there exist only one tunnel). You can stand and walk upright in the tunnel (no crawling is needed). Bring a pair of good shoes because it might be wet on the floor. A torch to get some light is also necessary (to see where you are going). You will find a small hall with a wooden table (made out of tree trunks). At the end of the hall will light flow in from a large mineshaft. The shaft is filled with water and it is deep (possibly 100 meters). There are a few wooden trunks that you could walk on, to get to the small shelf on the other side. The cache is hidden there.


This is one of the coolest places I have seen in a long time, but cool might also be dangerous. DO NOT let children play here by themselves. DO NOT under any circumstances try to dive or swim in the water. This is an old mine and there might be hooks of iron (left from the mining activities) in the rock under the water surface that you could get caught in. Some years ago two divers drowned here while they tried to explore the shaft using diving suits. We don't take any responsibility for you being injured, but you won't be injured if you just use your common sense.

A good spot to park the car is on N 58 04.408 E 16 22.107.
