Geocache Description:

The coordinates will lead you to Laugarvatnshellir, located a short way from the road between Laugarvatn and þingvellir.

Listting updated on 18.03.2018.

We first visited the cave on a holiday trip in 2004.
At this time there was only a small sign leading us from the old road to a small parking lot.
No one around us, only the inhabitants of the 2 caves, some sheep.

So we felt Lost in Iceland.

2009 I started geocaching and one year later I hide the first box within one of the cave.
To log the old cache you have had to answer some questions you found on an information board at the parking place.
There were some more people there but there was still the feeling of "Lost in Iceland".

Now times has changed and the caves weren't occupied by sheep.

A little museum "The Cave People" has been integrated in the caves to give you an idea, how people lived here in the 20th of the last century.

On their Website you can get a short information about the museum and you can do a request for a guided tour.
In winter it's not open every day.

To go to the cache you have to take Lyngdalsheiðarvegur No 365. There will be a branch to the north (road no. 367).
If the branch is closed in winter (Lokad), you can't go by car to the cave. You have to walk. It's about 3 kms.

You are looking for a lock-lock-Container near the cave. It is not in the museum.
The staff of the museum is well informed about the cache.

Many thanks to The Cave People, that the cache can remain at this place.
