Spain’s Treasure of the Temple Knights GeoTour (GT8C)

19. September 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Geocache your way to find the “Treasure of the Temple Knights” (El Tesoro de los Templarios) in the Saja and Nansa valleys of Cantabria, Spain! Launching September 2018, Spain's very first GeoTour (GT8C) will have 148 geocaches along the Iberian peninsula hidden in tribute to the 148 treasures placed by the Order of the Temple Knights. This may be the earliest reference to history's first geocachers! Visitors will enjoy countryside tourism and a thrilling array of responsible adventure sports over the valleys' 1,000 km² (386 mi²) of mountain ranges, national parks, and coastal scenery. The search for the locations of 148 caches took 4 months and was conducted with the cultural and environmental heritage of the region in mind. Among others, some locations include Sierra del Escudo, the Castle of San Vicente de la Barquera, the Roman Road of San Vicente del Monte, the GR Foramontanos theme route, and the Medieval Route that ends at the Ferrería de Cades. There are even geocaching locations designed for kids based on mythological creatures! Great caches on this GeoTour: El Capricho de Gaudi (GC7XCF1). Modernism developed in Europe at the end of the 19th century with the desire to create a new and free art, one that expressed progress. Some of them were frequently inspired by nature, as seen in some of the details in Gaudí's most iconic work, part of the cultural heritage of the region. Ramidreju (GC7XCHW). A hidden creature of Cantabria Mythology, Ramidreju are believed to inhabit the forests in the region and lives in deep holes similar to moles. They are born once every hundred years as weasel young. Their body is thin and slender with a long tail. Their whole body is protected by their striped green and black fur, similar to that of a snake. Their eyes are big and green and their snout is like a boar's which enables them to dig underground. Legend has it that the Ramidreju possesses a treasure hunting trait, similar to geocachers! King's Castle (GC7XDH3). Revel in this 800-year-old impenetrable fortress that stands majestically on a rocky promontory. Built after the concession in 1210 by Alfonso VIII, it is flanked by the San Vicente estuary. Prizes! Find all active and temporarily disabled caches on the GeoTour to earn the unique souvenir! Fill out the tours' passport to track your progress and receive an exclusive geocoin once you log 100 caches.

Lake Gunn Fishermans Rest (Milford Rd, Fiordland) – Geocache of the Week

13. September 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional Cache GCHW72 by kiwitonita Difficulty: 2 Terrain: 1.5 Location: South Island, New Zealand S 44° 53.521′ E 168° 04.754′ The lush, green moss dangling from the trees drape over the hiking trail on the way to a quaint hidden resting spot with a geocache. This ancient, red beech forest has an array of bird species, hiking paths, and glimpses of the eye-popping fjords between the trees. This Geocache of the Week serves as another dazzling example of the locations where geocaching can unexpectedly take you. In the heart of New Zealand's Fiordland National Park, the Lake Gunn Nature Walk is a whimsical, winding trail through an ancient growth forest. Reminiscent of a fairy tale, the nature walk fully immerses you in a landscape you thought you could only imagine. Parts of the trail were used by fishermen before it became a protected area. Great fishermen have the ability to find secret fishing spots, and this cache leads you to a spot known only to a few. For this cache, part of the battle is finding the right smaller path among the green foliage. Choosing the right path brings you to ground zero, but the hardest part is deciding whether to take in the view or to search for the cache. Nearby are a few trees that extend above the ground and one of them holds the cache container. The scenic views of high cliffs jutting from the water's surface are only unique to a few places in the world. If you're angling for geocaches and happen to be nearby these fjords, make sure Lake Gunn Fishermans Rest is one of them. Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world. Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog. If you would like to nominate a Geocache of the Week, fill out this form. [...]
