We like big caches and we can not lie

Y2EL’s Bugs, Bugs, Octopus – ‘Much Ado’ is a big cache. How big? Well, big enough to fit most of your body inside. In fact, this may be one of the larger caches in the United Kingdom. The journey to the cache may be challenging due to the nettles and thistles in the area, but the reward is worth it.

The cache can be found after a decent hike alongside the River Trent in the East Midlands region of the Uk. The container forces you to climb inside all the way to the very back in order to log the cache.

This cache will make you feel silly. This cache will make you laugh. This cache will give your friends and families plenty of embarrassing photos to share with the world.

Islas Canarias, Spain

The Masca Gorge is a Nature Conservation Zone

Some Multi-Caches are quick grabs that you can find during your lunch break, while others are much more labor intensive, taking you through multiple neighborhoods, around winding forests, or even requiring a drive to a different city. This T5 Multi-Cache, located in Spain’s Canary Islands, will send you on a three-hour long trek through a basaltic ravine to an isolated beach.

The journey begins in Masca, a small mountain village on the island of Tenerife. Home to only 90 inhabitants, the village is situated 650 meters (2130 feet) above sea level in the Macizo de Teno mountains.

For some, home away from home is being in the great outdoors en route to a cache. On a popular bike route in central Sweden there is a cache that made many geocachers feel at home because they are literally in a home once they arrive at the cache. 275 of them to be precise. That’s how many geocachers have logged a smiley at Östanbyn — and of them over 70% awarded this cache a Favorite point.
