Geocache Description:

A small cache not far away from the statue of the famous dog and WW2 Hero "Bamse".

The cache is a micro in a relatively busy area. It contains log, pencil and eraser. FTF price to first finder. Please be careful when retrieving and replacing the cache.

I placed this cache because there really ought to be more caches in the town of Honningsvåg. A lot of tourists, amongst them many geocachers, visit the town during the year, and it is a pity that there are so few caches in an area with more than 250000 visits each year.


Bamse was a St. Bernhard dog from Honningsvåg, that became famous during the WW2 years in Montrose in Scotland. He was owned by Captain Hafto of the Norwegian Navy, and went to sea with him on the minesweeper Thorodd during the war.
The statue of Bamse was placed in Honningsvåg the 19th of June 2009. It is a copy of the statue in Montrose.
