Cruiseing and Geocaching

Recommended Posts

We are going to be visiting the Baltic on a cruise next week starting on the 20th. Both our time and mobility is limited. We would like to find a cache in each port that is large enough to hold one of our coins that we intend to launch in that city. Our itinerary is as follows; Thursday - Stockholm , Friday - Helsinki, Saturday & Sunday - St. Petersburg, Monday - Tallinn, Tuesday- -Gdynia, Thursday Oslo, Friday - Copenhagen.

We would welcome your suggestions and comments.

Some caches have been placed after that list was made, and the list also includes micros.

 

Here are some caches (traditionals mostly, some of which are on that list) in downtown Helsinki that should be big enough to take a geocoin (no micros):

 

Helsinki Monopoly: Korkeavuorenkatu (GC11K0X)

(needs a screwdriver or other similar tool!)

 

Halkolaituri,Helsinki (GC16T5T)

 

Kruunu13 (GC16PMT)

 

Tervasaaren kuuset, Helsinki (GC168BK)

 

Ravintolalaiva Väiski,Helsinki (GC16254)

 

Siltavuorensalmi (GCZ05P)

 

Siltasaari Beach (GC1ARDR)

 

Down Under - Manan majoilla (GC16MQT)

 

Tram 2 and 2V, Linjat (GC17V4E)

 

Lintsi (GCXHND)

 

HIFK (GCR54T)

(= Helsinki Sports Club, or something like that! Ice hockey team anyway)

 

Helsinki 1952 Olympic Games, Rowing Stadium (GCPM3H)

 

Helsinki 1952 Olympic Games, Olympic Stadium (GCPM2G)

 

Bridge of Sturenkatu (GCM6AX)

 

Metro Helsinki, Kalasatama Station (GCMNKZ)

 

Mustikkamaa (GCYZ3G)

 

(Red Herring, Helsinki, GC561B, is not a Regular, but a micro!)

 

A bit further from the centre:

Thanks to Winged Stone and Gandal, we know we will be able to drop a coin in Finland and add that country to our list. We are hoping to hear from other countries. Could you please recommend a cache in town that is, convenient to the docking area, not strenuous, and is large enough to receive a travel bug. If none is available, perhaps you were thinking of placing one. :)

As a reward/ thank you gift/ sweetener, we would be glad to drop one of our unactivated coins for your personal collection if you would like.

Thanks,

That would be kind! I still quite new to geocaching and haven't owned any TBs yet. We could email to finalise the details. Meanwhile, you might get your travel bug into Tervasaaren kuuset, Helsinki (GC168BK) if it's not too big (the name means Tar Island spruces, which should help find the cache!).

 

Cheers,
