How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This cache takes you to a short walk through a nice park with a view to the center of Helsinki.

To find the coordinates of the stash you’ll find out when “The Torch” (“Soihtu”) was finished and by whom. When you have the year and the name of the person you’ll have to do some calculations. YEAR-1141 gives you the decimals in N 60º Then count the number of the letters (=NL) of the person’s name (first name and surname). 396-(NL*10) gives you the decimals in E24º56.yyy.
