Geocache Description:

Location: Lanzarote, Spain

Situated on the sunny volcanic island of Lanzarote in the Canaries, this is presumably Europe's both most southern and western geocache. The cache is located on the side of the Pico Colorado mountain near the village Soo in the northern part of the island. The stash consists of an army surplus ammo can hidden within a pile of rocks and lava blocks on top of a small knoll on the northern face of the mountain. The stash is best approached on foot or mountain bike from the north, east or west - several dirt tracks lead to the location. The ammo can is the small model and is rather full of sundry goodies - so don't bring anything too big to trade.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)



  • Crater viewView of the volcanic crater from the cache location.
  • Ocean viewView in the opposite direction, north over the Atlantic.
