Get out and explore all of the Wonders of the World, in and out of this world! From Victoria Falls in Zambia to the Jezero Crater on Mars where the Perseverance Rover landed, your next geocaching adventure awaits.
Two new levels have been added to Wonders of the World Geocaching Challenge: Natural and Solar System Wonders. That means 14 new wonders and 3 new souvenirs.
What are the six souvenirs I can earn during Wonders of the World? We’ve earned the first three and are heading out this week to work on the new ones
- Modern Wonders of the World
- Ancient Wonders of the World
- World Explorer
- Natural Wonders of the World
- Solar System Wonders of the World
- Ultimate Explorer
How many Wonders do I need to find to earn each souvenir?
The first souvenir, Modern Wonders of the World, requires finding all seven Modern Wonders. The second souvenir, Ancient Wonders of the World, requires finding seven Ancient Wonders of the World. The third souvenir, World Explorer, will be awarded when you have completed the prior two steps.
The Natural Wonders of the World souvenir requires finding all seven Natural Wonders. Find all seven of the Solar System Wonders to earn the Solar System Wonders of the World souvenir, which earns you the Ultimate Explorer souvenir for filling all of the pages of your passport. Geocaching Souvenirs are virtual pieces of art that can be collected and displayed on your profile. They’re generally awarded for caching in a particular location, on a particular date, or during one of geocaching souvenir challenges like Wonders of the World.
The Wonders of the World Geocaching Challenge began in 2020: The Ancient and Modern Wonders are part of an amazing journey through cultures and civilizations from long ago, showcasing amazing feats of construction. Geocachers need to collect all of the Modern and Ancient Wonders before they can move on and collect the Natural and Solar System Wonders stamps to become the Ultimate Explorer.
Let us be home base for exploring and enjoying the Hood River Valley and Mt Hood National Forest. After a full day, you’ll love the peace and tranquility of the Old Parkdale Inn. Relax in the gardens, perhaps with a glass of wine from a bottle you picked up at a local winery or our wine cabinet. We can even have a bonfire, roast some s’mores, weather permitting of course.
The Hood River Fruit loop is located in the beautiful Hood River Valley at the foot of majestic Mt. Hood offering you a variety of wines, fruits, vegetables, flowers, ciders, and food. Outdoor adventures such as kayaking, windsurfing, skiing, snow boarding, and hiking await. Mt. Hood Meadows, Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and Timberline Ski areas are only a short drive away, as is the vast Mt. Hood National Forest where trails and wildlife abound. During the summer months stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
