Top 9 Geocaches of the Week 2022

We highlight special geocaches from around the world each week—and what a year it’s been! We saw a fantastic variety of geocaches, ranging from a well-engineered Multi-Cache hidden in Poland, a handcrafted Letterbox Hybrid in Canada, an epic journey to a hobbit hole in New Zealand, to a video game-inspired cache in Germany, and many more.

We looked at the geocaches you liked most on our blog, Facebook, and Twitter to assemble a list of the top 9 to share. Let us know your favorites:

1.) The World’s Largest NanoGC57VFG

Just when you thought you were an expert on cache size, you stumbled upon the world’s largest nano. Perplexed, you dive deep into the geocaching guidelines and YouTube web archives and check in with libraries in the Vatican on any information about this rumored anomaly. Nestled away in the heart of Kansas, it turns out that those rumors are true, and yes, it’s magnetic (GC57VFG).

2.) There And Back AgainGC3VBMT

In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit and perhaps the most enchanting Multi-Cache in Middle Earth. The Shire is a starting point for many great journeys, and our Geocache of the Week is no exception. So travel with us to the North Island of New Zealand to uncover the secrets of this land; we’re headed “There And Back Again” for (GC3VBMT).

3.) Dr. Who FVCB5GC9QX5E

Ready for an interdimensional geocaching adventure? Located in rural British Columbia, “Dr. Who FVCB5” attracts geocachers and Time Lords alike. But don’t worry; (GC9QX5E) is bigger on the inside!

4.) Retro-GamesGC976P1

As much as geocaching is about the new, the innovative, and the creative, a large part of the game is about nostalgia. Many players continue to use GPS devices as a nod to the game’s origins, and many still know the company behind geocaching as Groundspeak! When it comes to hobbies, nostalgia is all around. So, if you’re looking to go back in time, grab your quarters and press “Start” on our Geocache of the Week: Retro-Games (GC976P1).

5.) Museu do PãoGC3FEKT

Sometimes, while on the quest for an adventure or performing a crazy feat to reach a cache container, we can lose sight of what geocaching is all about. It’s not always about the intense climb or difficulty ratings. Instead, the most memorable cache container designs make us think outside the box while nourishing our minds and our sense of curiosity. So we’re returning to our roots with this Geocache of the Week: Museu do Pão (GC3FEKT).

6.) Uyuni Train CemeteryGC6QJBD

Geocaching is an anytime, anywhere adventure that can lead you to very unexpected places. With no place to dodge the sun, the blazing desert floor is the perfect backdrop for extreme geocaching and discovering unique attractions. So grab your sunglasses—we’re traveling to Uyuni, Bolivia, to explore a very unusual cemetery for our Geocache of the Week, Uyuni Train Cemetery (GC6QJBD).

7.) PNGS #20 Błędne Skały – Skarb Błędnych SkałGC7WDNC

Towering rocks and narrow passageways guide you through this labyrinth, the only thing that stands in the way of you and the cache. We’ll see you on the other side, explorer. It’s time to navigate the Geocache of the Week, PNGS #20 Błędne Skały – Skarb Błędnych Skał (GC7WDNC).

8.) Bende van de Witte VeerGC8BQQ9

Centuries ago, a gang of thieves ran amok in a small Dutch village. When fate finally caught up, they hid their stolen treasure in the expansive forested wilderness. Cryptic messages around the forest allude to the treasure’s whereabouts, but there’s a catch—the treasure lies at the end of a whopping 24-stage Multi-Cache, (GC8BQQ9)!

9.) Lion Cave and Tiger’s NestGC3Z126

Located high in the Himalayas, the Buddhist monarchy of Bhutan is known for its monasteries, dramatic landscapes, and mountainous terrain. Visitors to this elevated nation struggle to catch their breath due to its high altitude and breathtaking vistas. So travel with us as we explore one of Bhutan’s most visited destinations: Lion Cave and Tiger’s Nest (GC3Z126).
