Geocache Description:

Norges sydligste cache.

Skjernøya er Norges sydligste bebobbedde øy. Den har bruforbindelse over Skjernøusundet, og cachen kan nås
uten båt. Den er pålassert på Norges sydligste punkt med broforbindelse til fastlandet. Norges sydligste fastlandspunkt
ligger på Lindesnes, og på Skjenøya kan du komme enda litt lengre syd. Cachen er plassert mot kanten på et stup, så vær forsiktig. Her det værhardt så hold godt på hatten. Pass godt på ungene.

Jeg anbefaler at dere benytter stien rundt Rosnesvågen som er en flott rundtur. Det er flere steder der en kan ta et bad, og nyte en solskinnsdag.

Ta av ved skiltet mot "Langhuset". Dere passerer ganske snart informasjonsskiltet fra denne steinalderboplassen som viser at området har vært bebodd lenge.

Det er ikke merket sti resten av veien mot cachen. Husk det er et bratt stup rett i sjøen ved cachen. Det er sauer som beiter på friområdet.


Norway's southernmost cache.
Island of Skjernø is the southernmost inhabited island in Norway. It has bridge over Skjernøusundet, and the cache can be reached without a boat.
It is located at the southernmost point of the island.
Norway's southernmost mainland point is, as everyone knows, on Lindesnes, but at Skjaernoe Island you can get a little further south. The cache is placed against the edge of a cliff, so be careful. Here the weather can be rough as well, hold on your hat, and take good care of the kids.

I recommend that you use the path around the bay of Rosnes, which is a great trip. There are several places where one can take a bath, and enjoy a sunny day.
Get off at the sign to "Langhus” (longhouse). You will pass very soon sign information from this Stone Age settlement which shows that the area has been inhabited for long.
No marked trail the rest of the way to the cache. Remember there is a steep cliff into the sea by the cache. There are sheep that graze on the outdoor area.
