Geocache of the Week

 

Geocache Name:

Amsterdam Urban 2 – Under the bridge

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

1.5/4.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

One of the best ways to see Amsterdam is by boat. You can take in the sights on the many canals that flow throughout the beautiful city. Of course, if you can pick up a geocache (or two or three) along the way, that’s a bonus! This geocache is one of the oldest in the Netherlands and a favorite of locals and tourists. At one point it was also a favorite of local pigeons, but thanks to a clever anti-pigeon system, that’s no longer an issue. Earlier this year, Geocaching HQ’s videographer, Reid (reidsomething), and a Geocaching HQ Volunteer Coordinator, Kerb (KerbL), teamed up with two locals to find this geocache. If you don’t think you’ll be able to make it to Amsterdam soon, just kick back, watch the video (spoiler alert!) and enjoy the ride.

    Sure annoying that the video is partially obscured by the voting sidebar, so you can’t read the subtitles…

    Hey Dragon Flyer. That does sound annoying. Have you tried moving your mouse away from the video player box?

  • dragon flyer

    Yeah; only thing I’ve now found that works is to go to youtube, which isn’t a really obvious thing…
