Geocache Description:

The Pearl is prob­ably the most re­cog­nis­able land­mark in Rey­kja­vik. It is built on top of gi­gant­ic tanks which hold the city's hot water after it is pumped from geo­therm­al wells out­side of town. There is a re­volv­ing gour­met rest­au­rant and a more ca­su­al café in­side. There is one ar­ti­fi­cial gey­sir out­side the Pearl, and one in­side - ar­ti­fi­cial, but nice! You will al­so get a great view over the city, and you can have a walk in the forest.

The treasure is hid­den in a plast­ic box measur­ing 8 * 10 * 15 cm. Ori­gi­nal con­tents: Log­book, pen, a small plas­tic figure (a geo­caching smurf!), a Kinder Egg, 0.20 Euro, 0.25 US$, a Danish coin from 1940, a plug for head­sets and a nice geo­caching badge.

Please never put food, candy or anything similar in a cache! Such items will attract animals.
