Geocache Description:

Heldags multi-cache på en af landets smukkeste og mest særprægede halvøer

All-day multi-cache on a most beautiful and distinguished peninsula.



Multi-cachen foregår på Knudshoved Odde som strækker sig fra Sydsjælland langt ud i Smålandsfarvandet. Man skal gå ca. 20 km.

Knudshoved Odde er dannet i istiden og er i virkeligheden en ås med vand omkring. Der er et rigt dyreliv og stærkt vekslende vegetation. Indtil for få år siden levede der bisonokser på et af de yderste stykker. Vi har forsøgt at råde bod på de manglende okser ved at vedlægge et fotografi af en af okserne i hovedcachen. Der er talrige bademuligheder på hele ruten.

Ikke langt fra trin 1 står en planche med et kort over alle halvøens stier og seværdigheder. Brug den til at planlægge turen. Den nemmeste vej ud og hjem er langs den gennemgående sti, men man bør ulejlige sig ud på et af de små næs undervejs og spise sin medbragte mad.

Trin 1: N 55° 03.383' E 011° 44.715'

Man kan parkere sin bil her for 15 kr. Koordinaterne peger på en tavle ved en dysse.

På tavlen er der to tegninger.

A = antallet af køer som trækker ploven på venstre tegning
B = antallet af mennesker på højre tegning

Trin 2: N 55° 0(2xA).88A' E 011° (B-A)(A+B).09A'

Ved Trin 2 står en sten med to bogstaver og et tal på. Tallet kalder vi CDFG.

Trin 3: N 55° 0(B-A).B(G-F)0' E 011° (B-C)(D-B).(C+D)(C+A)(B-C)'

Hovedcachen ligger ved trin 3.


This multi-cache takes place on Knudshoved Odde (Knud = Canute, an ancient Danish king), a long and narrow peninsula off the South of Zealand. The cache includes a 20 km hike.

Knudshoved Odde was formed in the Ice Age. It demonstrates rich wildlife and vegetation. Until recently, bisons lived in one of the farthest parts. We have tried to make up for the lack of bison by enclosing a photograpy of one of the bisons in the main cache. There is plenty of bathing opportunities along the path.

An information board not far from step 1 describes all paths and attractions of the peninsula. You may plan your route according to the board. The easiest way out and back is along the main path, but you should go to one of the points underway and have your lunch.

Step 1: N 55° 03.383' E 011° 44.715'

Parking is available here at 15 kr. The coordinates point towards a small info board close to a dolmen.

The board contains two drawings.

A = the number of cows pulling the plough on the left drawing
B = the number of individuals on the right drawing

Step 2: N 55° 0(2xA).88A' E 011° (B-A)(A+B).09A'

Step 2 is a stone with two letters and a number. We call the number CDFG.

Step 3: N 55° 0(B-A).B(G-F)0' E 011° (B-C)(D-B).(C+D)(C+A)(B-C)'

The main cache is at step 3.
