Smell the beautiful orchids of the spring or feel the beat from the wings of the summer’s sweetest birds, the White-throated Dipper and the Commen Kingfisher, when it flies over the rippling stream of Verkeån.
The rut from the red deer vibrates during the lukewarm late summers evening, enjoy the concert in the lush garden of Gladan & Vråken after a funny day in the search of caches and rebuses! (Go to "bike" in the main menu and look at a picture of the red deer).
This is how Gladan & Vråkens treasure hunt works:
A cache is a jar/bag with a seal who is hidden somewhere in the nature. You will find the cache with help of a map or a GPS. If you choose an easier level, you will also receive some clues of where the caches are hidden.
This route to the waterfall as final is about 8 kilometres totally:
The fall is the highest coherent waterfall in Scania, with a total height of 23 metres. In the beginning of the 20th Century there was a vivid trading centre at the watermill.
Around the 1930s, the ground was known for “Chicago of the forest”, with elements of revenge and violent death.
The mill with ancestry from the 13th Century is the only building that is left from these bygone days of glory (periods of greatness), and here somewhere you will find the main cache.
There’s more information about Hallamölla (with biota) way back in the cache jar/bag. You shall also put the solution of the rebus in the main cache jar/bag.
From Gladan & Vråken there are 2 hidden caches, which will lead you to the maine cache. In each of these caches there is a little piece of a nature puzzle that together forms a rebus. Place the solution of the rebus in the jar/bag of the main cache with name and a telephone number. From the hidden caches you’ll get information about the nature right on this spot and the uniqueness.
If you come up with the right solution, you can win a gift certificate for an overnight stay at Gladan & Vråken for two people. The drawing takes place in the beginning of October and the winner is notified by telephone. The winner is also announced on our Facebook-page.
