The hashpoint was in the forest between Porjus and Harsprånget.

[edit] the ru

I drove along E10 to Gällivare, then E45 to Porjus. The hashpoint was a bit further south, near the Harsprånget dam and power station. Google had shown a road (turned out to be Harsprångsvägen) that would take me almost all the way to the hash. There was some snow in the forest, but GEOHASHERS DO NOT FEAR SNOW.

There was a nondescript building near the hashpoint, probably an old military installation. Since there were no "don't photograph, plz" signs, I assumed no one would mind me doing so.

After finding the hashpoint, I went to have a look at the dam. It was huge.

Easy expedition, though time (6 hours) and fuel-consuming.

... wait, what?

So anyway, I saw a couple of signs as well:
