Geocache Name: Big Four Ice Caves (GC1575A) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/4 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Uhhh, did you see the photos? This location is amazing! And if you’re in the United States and celebrating Thanksgiving, the hike to this geocache is a great way to work up a hunger or burn off some of the food you just ate.

Geocache Name: Arkadia (GC4R1CQ) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 4/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: We’ve seen geocaching combined with quite a few things: movies, tv shows, urban legends, etc… And now, thanks to some ingenious geocache creators, a classic arcade game. This geocache surfaced thanks to Reddit user malken, who posted a video of the geocache in the geocaching section of the site. Once geocachers figure out the first stage and make it to the second stage, the real fun begins. For those of us who grew up in the 80s, it will most likely be a breeze, but others may [...]
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.

Geocache Name: Geist des Hagen (GC11JM6) Schwierigkeit/Gelände Bewertung: 1.5/2 Warum ist das der Geocache der Woche: Es gibt wohl keinen besseren Zeitpunkt als Halloween, um in die dunklen Wälder aufzubrechen und einen der beliebtesten Geocaches in Deutschland zu finden. Der “Geist des Hagen” ist eine Anspielung auf das Nibelungenlied: die alte Sage über Liebe, Krieg und Verrat, in der Hagen als Widersacher des (beinahe) unbezwinglichen Siegfried auftritt. Vorsicht-Spoiler: Hagen tötet Siegfried, stirbt aber später selbst durch die Hand der schönen Kriemhild. Sein Geist, der keine Ruhe findet, bewacht nun diesen Geocache und spukt jeden, der es wagt ihn zu suchen. [...]
