Geocache Description:

Cache is Located on the Island of GRIMSEY of the coast of iceland in the ARCTIC CIRCLE.

A great trip to a lovely island,
You can get to the island by ferry from Dalvik on a day return. It is a 3hr crossing and you have approx 3.5hrs on the island.

It is an easy walk from the harbour to the cache sight overlooking the sea.

Updated Co-Ordinates:66º 33.003' N 18º01.599' W

Once you arrive on the Island of GRIMSEY you need to proceed to the Signpost Near the Airport and Guest house that is in the ARCTIC CIRCLE.

The Cache is located NW from the signpost, follow the path from the SIGNPOST towards the cliffs.

Watch the birds above as they tend to fly very close and swoop down, it reminded me of the film "The Birds"

You will walk across a gravel road and you will see puffins on the cliffs a great sight.

The cache is hidden under a small mound of rocks that is very visable as you walk to wards the cliffs,
It is located in a Plastic Tub with a Large Green Geocache sticker on the box,

It contains the usual items of small toys etc.

We hop you find this cache place just as much as we did a lovely place to just sit and admire the views.

Pictures of the cache site and the surrounding views will be uploaded once we return home from holiday.

Small note on cache maintenance: The cache will be maintained by our friends in Akureyri and by my son who is in Akureyri over the summer.
