Geocache Description:

This small traditional will lead you to a relic of Skaftafell's history and a wonderful hidden corner of the busy park.

Hidden to commemorate the CO's summer of conservation work in Vatnajökull National Park with the Iceland Conservation Volunteers, the hunt for this cache will lead to you to one of Skaftafell's historic hydroelectric generators, housed in a traditional turf-roofed building.

This cache is best approached by heading up the H1 hiking trail, accessible on foot along the valley from the main visitor's centre. Please note that the cache is not hidden within the building itself.

At the time of hiding, the cache contained a logbook, pencil and TB.

Hidden with the permission of and maintained by the Vatnajökull National Park management.
