Geocache Description:

A small container, containing a log but no space for pencil.
/ En liten sak, med logg, men uten plass til blyant.

The cache is placed on the island Søndre Kaholmen where the fortress Oscarsborg is situated.
Go there, and get a guided tour, to learn about the very interesting and exiting history of this place!
There are frequent ferries from Drøbak (east) and from Sætre (west). This is a place also for kids!

Some of the guns, and Drøbak behind / Kanoner og Drøbak i bakgrunnen:

/ Ligger på Søndre Kaholmen, hvor Oscarsborg festning ligger. Dra dit, og få en fin omvisning om dette stedets spennende historie. Vi begrenser oss her til å nevne senkningen av "Blücher" grytidlig om morgenen 9. april 1940.

Det går hyppig ferger fra Drøbak og fra Hurum, og det er mulig å overnatte på øya. Vakker natur og mange spennende bygninger. Dette er også noe for barna!
