Geocache Description:


An outstanding view to two fjords and a factory

Located in the southern hills of Hurum, this cache offers outstanding views straight out the Oslo fjord, with additional views of the Drammen fjord, the islands, and the coasts of Vestfold and Østfold. Below you to the the east, a large factory contributes some pulp facts to the environment. Web page
From central Tofte you want to start your trip by walking up the steep Strigleveien. Past the roadblock you will come to a waterworks. Cross the creek above the waterworks and head up the steep trail towards the east. Failure to do so will get you into the wrong valley although your gpsr points straight to the goal at this point.
From here on an unmarked, but clearly visible trail leads to the target area. You are on your way to Raumyrfjell at 202 meters above the sea (not named on the Vestmarka map). At the summit there's a kjentmannspost and the remains of a traditional "trig"-tower.
The cache is hidden further a little to the south, in a crooked pine tree below the summit.
It is a Läkerol box secured with a ski strap and a thin wire. Only the wire is visible. Inside the lid is a picture of the singer whose monster hit has given name to the kjentmannspost, but not to the cache.
Initial content:
Combination stashnote and log.
Three microcards A nail A saw
Warning: The rocky plateau may be very slippery, Be careful.
