GEOCACHING-TREASURE HUNT

GEOCACHING - ADVENTURE: TREASURE HUNT ON THE STUBAI GLACIER

Geocaching is the new outdoor trend that combines an exciting treasure hunt with awesome outdoor experiences. The participants of this game are called geocachers. They hide little treasures in chests, plastic containers, bottles etc. all over the world. Some of these treasures, also referred to as caches, are also hidden on the Stubai Glacier. If you cache attentively you can find them…

HOW TO FIND THE TREASURES?

  1.  Register on geochaching.com.
  2.  Select the Stubai Glacier in the regional selection.
  3. Download the coordinates of the treasures to your smart phone or GPS-device.
  4. Off you go to the Stubai Glacier.

The coordinates roughly give the location of the caches. Once you are there you still have to look around a bit. Little hints for finding the treasures are also given on geocaching.com. Once you’ve found the treasure you can enter your name in the logbook. And if you remove a treasure, little things like e.g. key chains, figures, balls, marbles etc. you have to put something into the cache for the next cacher (treasure hunter) to find – that is the cacher codex! Please ONLY enter your name in the logbook at micro caches. These containers are too small for goods to be replaced.
