Descrizione    English (Inglese)


Fully integrated in the environment by using mostly virtual caches as well as riddles, the sustainable Multi- Cache will take you through breathtaking landscapes, ancient villages and unique spots encompassing Monaco, Italy and France.

The Via Alpina is a network of 5 walking trails across the eight countries of the Alpine region, more than 5000km long and with 342 day stages. This Multi- Cache is placed along the first 13 stages of the Red Trail of the Via Alpina, from Monaco to Castérino.

Like other Multi- Caches this cache involve more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. It uses "virtual" stages without containers (like virtual caches). The location of the final stage is determined from information found on existing objects, monuments, plaques, public art or places. You find the locations of all stages but the final published, and each of these stages provides part of the information needed to find the final.

Combine serious wanderlust with a hunger for treasure hunting!!


Riddle: Final Cache 

In order to find the final Cache simply fill in your answers in the appropriate blanks.

N[(F*L) -D]°0.[A+C][N]   E00[K]°[(G*H)*I].[J-M][E][O]

The right coordinates will lead you to a comfortable Auberge where you can fill up your Energy and where you should ask for the treasure chest. All the best!

OC-Team temporaneamente non disponibile The geocache description is outdated. 13. luglio 2017 mic@ ha disabilitato la cache

Our terms of use say that listing must be synchronized if published on multiple platforms. Unfortunately there are many differences between this listing and the one on geocaching.com (GC4WTK9). Here is the list: Different answers for waypoints "O" and "P", the final formula differs slightly and the D/T-rating is not the same. The owner should update his listing, meanwhile I deactivate it. If I don´t get any feedback within one month (13-aug-2017), then this listing will be archived.
If You need more informations or if you have questions, then just contact me or the team.

Nota The geocache needs maintenance. 09. maggio 2016 Frank_Z ha scritto una nota

I have read about this project on the via alpina website a long time ago.

Today I finally came across this cache listing.

While looking at the waypoints, there are some errors with the waypoints N and O, North should be 44 instead of 43. Same for the starting point I think.

I have hiked the northern part of the GTA and will finish some day and maybe be able to find the information for this cache.
