Caching in Newfoundland

Followers 1

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of caches in St John's, several within walking distance of downtown. I was there last year at the beginning of May and I managed to get a few even if I was on foot. Signal Hill definitively has great scenery. Especially the trail that goes around the hill (scary if you don't like heights, but very very nice view).


Also, while you are there, you can get one of the Great White North Geotour caches : GCXDZ8

We have decided to go to St. John's for this trip. Thanks for the heads up on the GREAT WHITE NORTH GEOTOUR. Now that seems like a challenge. Maybe could get a few of them this summer.


The easiest way to find some is to entera postal code for St. John's and then use the googlemap feature. You will comeup with several, that's what did earlier the spring. Try A1B 1W1.

My family and I are going to be in Newfoundland for two weeks this summer and I'm telling everyone it is my "dream" vacation. And it is. We're going to start in St. John's, then spend some time on the Avalon Peninsula, then up to Bona Vista, Twillingate, then a quick jaunt over to Gros Morne. By then we'll be out of time, so we'll have to fly back across the island.


I haven't started researching caches yet, but I recall a few years ago reading a desription that went something like this:


"An area most tourists miss... walk 300m through the forest... when you come to cliff with the lighthouse..."


Oh, yeah!

Thanks everyone for your tips. We spent a week in Newfoundland and had such a great time. We were continually on the move and saw fantastic scenery, whales, birds but missed the moose. Most of the caches we found were really in really good spots that took us to a location of interest. I especially enjoyed the surprise of Na Geira's Treasure and Hopeall's First as I hadn't read the cache page. Don't miss the mine tour on Bell Island. We'll have to go back to explore other areas and maybe stay longer next time. Thanks all.
