Geocache Description:


English:
Hraunhafnartangi is a wonderful quiet place.
There you have a great view at the ocean and the lighthouse.
It is nearly the very north point of Iceland - in former times it was.
The lighthouse Hraunhafnartangi is also part of the lighthouseroute from Gjoegurtaarviti to Digranesviri in the nordurland of Iceland.

When you want you can go the official hiking route to the lighthouse (ca 1 hour) but it's not adviseable, because near the path there is a hatchery of the Arctic Thern and these birds a very aggressive. So it's better for you and the birds when you don't take this walk during the breading season.
Hraunhafnartangi was the very north point of our three weeks journey through Iceland and so we decided to make a cache there. The cache is near the road, far away from the hatchery - so no risk for the Arctic Tern and you :-)

Only the last few kilometers from Raufarhoefn to Hraunhafnartangi, to the cache are a gravel road and the whole route you can drive with a womo.

Happy hunting!!

Google translation icelandic:
Hraunhafnartangi er yndislegt rólegur staður.
Það sem þú ert með mikið útsýni á haf og vitann.
Það er næstum því mjög norður benda á Íslandi - Fyrrum var.
Vitinn Hraunhafnartangi er einnig hluti af lighthouseroute frá Gjoegurtaarviti til Digranesviri í Norðurland á Íslandi.

Þegar þú vilt þú getur farið í opinbera gönguleið við vitann (ca 1 klst) en það er ekki adviseable, því nálægt götunni er hatchery á Arctic Thern og þessum fuglum er mjög árásargjarn. Svo það er betra fyrir þig og fuglar þegar þú tekur ekki þetta ganga á Hrossarækt árstíð.
Hraunhafnartangi var mjög norður benda á þriggja vikna ferð okkar í gegnum Ísland og svo við ákváðum að gera skyndiminni þar. Skyndiminni er nálægt veginum, langt í burtu frá hatchery - svo engin hætta fyrir Arctic Tern og þú :-)

Aðeins síðustu nokkra kílómetra frá Raufarhoefn til Hraunhafnartangi, að skyndiminni eru á malarveg og allt leið sem þú getur ekið með womo.

Happy veiði!
