Fully integrated in the environment by using mostly virtual caches as well as riddles, the sustainable Multi- Cache will take you through breathtaking landscapes, ancient villages and unique spots encompassing Monaco, Italy and France.

The Via Alpina is a network of 5 walking trails across the eight countries of the Alpine region, more than 5000km long and with 342 day stages. This Multi- Cache is placed along the first 13 stages of the Red Trail of the Via Alpina, from Monaco to Castérino.

Like other Multi- Caches this cache involve more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. It uses "virtual" stages without containers (like virtual caches). The location of the final stage is determined from information found on existing objects, monuments, plaques, public art or places. You find the locations of all stages but the final published, and each of these stages provides part of the information needed to find the final.

Combine serious wanderlust with a hunger for treasure hunting!!


Riddle: Final Cache 

In order to find the final Cache simply fill in your answers in the appropriate blanks.

N[(F*L) -D]°0.[A+C][N]   E00[K]°[(G*H)*I].[J-M][E][O]

The right coordinates will lead you to a comfortable Auberge where you can fill up your Energy and where you should ask for the treasure chest. All the best!
