Geocache Description:

Bukkekjerka er fremtidens hovedstoppested langs nasjonal turistvei Andøy. Her skal det bygges rasteplass med toalett i fremtiden. - Bukkekjerka is the future main stop along the national tourist route. A picnic area and a toilet facility is about to be built in the area


Bukkekjerka er en formasjon der naturen har bygd naturlig alter og prekestol. På grunn av den spesielle atmosfæren som etableres her mellom tinder og storhav, holdes det årlig én friluftsgudstjeneste som trekker folk fra hele distriktet. Det har også vært foretatt vigsler her. Men navnet bukkekjerka har faktisk ingenting med kirke å gjøre. Bohki er et samisk ord for trangt sted, ei kløft. Og giergie er det samiske ordet for stein. Slike navn gir ofte gale tolkninger som igjen gir opphav til sagn. Her het det at bukkene (som ble tolket som drauger) en gang i år året dukket opp for å holde gudstjeneste – altså ei «bukkekirke».

Utvilsomt har dette vært et hellig sted, der folk ofret til gudene. Det var særlig særlig kveite som ble brukt som offergaver. Men så har altså kristendommen og kirka overtatt, og gitt Bukkekjerka et skinn av en kristen helligdom. (Kilde: Andøy historielag)

ENG
Bukkekjerka is a formation where nature has built a natural altar and pulpit. Because of the special atmosphere that is established here between peaks and ocean, one outdoor worship is held annually that draws people from all over the district. It has also been undertaken marriages here. But the name buck church actually has nothing to do with the church. Bohki is a Sami word for narrow place, a ravine. And giergie is the Sami word for stone. Such names often give wrong interpretations which in turn gives rise to the legend. It stated that the goats (which was interpreted as wraiths) once a year the year appeared to serve God - that a "buck church." 

Undoubtedly, this has been a sacred place, where people sacrificed to the gods. Particularly special halibut were used as offerings. But so has thus Christianity and the church taken over and given Bukkekjerka a semblance of a Christian shrine.
