Great view of Tromsų in popular hiking terrain. Bring a paperback!

At the moment of placement, this was the northernmost geocache in Europe, a record which did not last for very long. Another paperback exchange cache, also containing a disposable camera. Please snap your picture and write your name in the camera log. The site is a 1 km walk from parking at 69° 45.260'N, 18° 52.064'E, and it has an excellent view of the Tromsų island.

If you have more time, you can proceed to the peak at 69° 45.660'N, 18° 52.210'E, where you'll have an excellent view towards the sea. On the way there, the view towards Tromsų will be even better. Taking the short cut back to the parking can be a bit steep.
