Longest distance from start to final of a multi?

This may sound like a silly question, but I'm curious ;) . What is the longest distance you have seen on a multi cache from start location to the final? Thank you :)!

 

I know one that's 130Km here in Belgium and there are 2 160-170 Km multi's in Greenland. I'm sure there are more and longer ones around.

There were 2 co-operative multis in the UK and New Zealand, each starting in one country and ending in the other. The cache owners allowed them both to be logged as long as you'd co-operated with a cacher in the other country. I don't know if anyone ever found them by visiting both locations or if the caches are still active.

Cool. Start in UK and final in NZ means almost an antipodal distance, so this can hardly be topped. I guess my initial question is answered - thank you!

I don't consider that a multi as it probably hardly get's done as any other multi. I guess one cacher will do the UK part and an other will be done by a NZ cacher.

I've seen that type of cache typically called an exchange cache. There are several of them mentioned in the All Nations forum.

I'd surpised if there were a longer multi where you have to walk the distance.

 

The E1 European long distance path from Nordkapp to Southern Italy covers short of 5000 kilometers. No multi yet, as far as I know.

 

Mmh, I will be at the most northern point of European mainland in summer, but I guess creating THAT multi might be an option for retirement :rolleyes:

For a hiking cache starting in Austria 2000 km. Graz - Monaco. Still unfound.

I want to find that!

 

Hello Ry Dawg.

 

I think, finding won't be the problem, but the time and the distance to do that could be a little challenging.

 

I guess, the owner would provide an English description on demand.

I agree.

 

By the way I was very amused about this blog post https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2015/11/geocaching-bucket-list-amazing-views-edition/

about your Munich-Venice cache - I have no idea how the blogger got the idea that the cache could be done in 2-4 days (seems like some people think that it can be done as road trip by car).

On a time scale like that of course your other cache would also require much less time and no longer timeout period.
