Geocache Description:


Blå Jungfrun, en ö i Kalmar sund som reser sig 130 meter över havsbotten och 86 meter över havsytan. Klippor och röd granit möter besökaren men ön har unik skog och ett väldigt speciellt växtliv. Carl von Linne var den första att beskriva ön i detalj efter sitt besök 1745. I mytologin flyger häxorna till 'BlåKulla' på Skärtorsdagen och 'Häxornas Dansplats' ligger väldigt nära gömman.

Det svåra med denna gömma är att ta sig till ön, sen är den nog ganska lätt att hitta men beroende på var båten landar (beror av vindförhållandena) kan det bli en ordentlig promenad i bitvis ganska jobbig terräng. På somrarna går det dagsturer från Oskarshamn och Byxelkrok. Kolla med turistbyrån i Oskarshamn för detaljer.


Blå Jungfrun (the Blue Maiden), is an island in Kalmar Sund (Kalmar Strait) that rises about 130 m above the sea-floor and 86 meters above sea-level. Bare cliffs and red granite meets the visitor but the island is very special when it comes to the forrest and the plants. Carl von Linne was the first to describe the island in detail when he visited it in 1745. In mythology the witches travels here on thursday before Easter and the 'Witches Dancefloor' is located close to the cache.

The difficulties with this cache is to get to the island, then it is rather easy to find the hidingplace. However, depending on where the boat arrive it can be a rather tough walk to reach the hidingplace. In summer-time there are tourboats from oskarshamn and Byxelkrok, check with the tourist-office in Oskarshamn for details.
