Caving in Nauvo

Nauvo is a large island in the archipelago south of Turku, Finland. Varberget is a set of small caves on a cliff ridge that rises on the island.

Janne and I took a day to drive to Nauvo, ride the ferries with our car, and hike to the ridge. We found a small cliff that was cut by horizontal and vertical cracks. There were at least four major areas of cracks. A horizontal crack system was running through a long distance through the ridge, though unfortunately disappearing here and there, so you the caves are really separate small ones rather than one large cave.

But Varberget is a nice hiking destination, the caves are easily explored by anyone, as long as you have clothes that you are willing to crawl in a bit. At the top of the ridge there is an observation tower.

The coordinates for the biggest two caves are N 60.134818 E 21.785965 and N 60.135049 E 21.784852.

Drone Footage of the World’s Most Dangerous Hiking Trail

This is supposedly the most dangerous trail in the world and claims almost 100 lives a year. It's located in the Huashan Mountain in Shaanxi Province and is known as the Mount Hua Skywalk. It's an interconnected trail of planks, chains, and railings that precariously put hikers on the knife's edge.  In reality, it looks like the trail that Jack built and if I was a sane person I would probably hike literally anything else.
