7th Annual Caching Riding Mountain Adventure Quest
June 8th & 9th, 2013
Take part in the 7th Annual Caching Riding Mountain GPS Adventure Quest and discover the people, places and heritage of the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve, its core area, Riding Mountain National Park and the 15 Rural Municipalities that make up the area of cooperation. Travel through the 15,000 square kilometers of the Biosphere Reserve locating over 50 caches that have been placed by communities, individuals and businesses for this specific event.
Cache types range from traditional to virtual to commercial to activity, with points assigned to each depending upon their distance from the start location, difficulty and tasks involved. It is up to each caching team to decide where they want to go, how many caches they will go after, and in what order. Prizes will be awarded to those teams who collect the most points and make it back to the check-in area within the 26 hours allotted.
Starting point / Ending point:

5th Annual Caching Riding Mountain Adventure Quest– June 11th & 12th, 2011
To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Parks Canada, this year’s Adventure Quest took participants to 100 locations across the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve. Using handheld GPS (global positioning systems) and wits, eleven teams navigated their way to traditional, virtual, and activity caches scattered throughout the area.
First place was once again taken by Treasure Hunters, who returned to defend their title as number one!
Every year the Adventure Quest has different locations within the biosphere, the diverse landscape providing the perfect atmosphere to explore mixed terrains and see wildlife (one group spotted a moose cow and her triplets).
