Geocache Description:

A rare view to the walls of Suomenlinna fortress.
A beautiful walk to the cache but the last reach is not so easy.

Kansallismaisemakätkö

The original Sveaborg or Suomenlinna -cache is back in business since 27.04.2003.
We desided to leave also this one, Suomenlinna ver.2 active as both are nice caches (we hope).

The cache is too small for trade items. Only smaller geocoins fit in.

This cache is even closer to the ship channel than the original. Do not attempt to reach the cache if the winds are high or if there is snow/ice on the ground.
The terrain is easy in the summer, but not at all easy in the winter - THIS PLACE IS DANGEROUS in icy conditions.

General information on the Suomenlinna fortress you can find here and a map here.

The coordinates were slightly modified to reflect the data given by the different users.
Here's the different coordinates used for the average:
N 60° 08.279 E 024° 59.438
N 60° 08.268 E 024° 59.429
N 60° 08.278 E 024° 59.430
N 60° 08.276 E 024° 59.428
N 60° 08.276 E 024° 59.424

23.12.2003 The coordinates were modified to reflect the data given by the different users. Original coordinates were N60 08,279 E024 59,438.

18.08.2002 It is difficult to get a good signal at the location. All the rock walls cause quite severe distortion; I suppose it is what they call monitiesärö in Finnish.
When you find the cache, please also write in your log what you consider to be the correct position. That way we slowly gather the right average...

ÄLÄ TUHOA LOKIKIRJAA RULLAAMALLA, KUN MAHTUU PURKKIIN SUORANAKIN!
DO NOT DESTROY LOGBOOK BY ROLLING. IT FITS IN STRAIGHT!
