Geocache Description:

This is a multi-cache for travellers with Color Line from Kiel to Oslo. The cache starts in Kiel and the actual cache is hidden in Oslo. The cache is also available in winter.

During the boat trip from Kiel to Oslo you have to search for some objects you can see from the boat. The waypoints are given below. You can find the first waypoint in Kiel, near the Oslo-quay. The other waypoints you have to find during the boat trip.

The actual cache is a micro-cache and is hidden within walking distance from the Color Line quay in Oslo. If you have a car, you can park your car outside the Color Line area. Follow the exit road to a roundabout and turn to the left (parking sign). You have to pay for parking here.

The cache is a small blue container with a logbook and a pencil. The initial contents are 4 small red mushrooms with white dots.
