Geocaching in the forest

What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a real treasure hunt outside using a GPS or smartphone (with built-in GPS). Participants go to specific coordinates where they try to find the geocache (box). Inside the geocache you will find at least a logbook that you can sign or an object that you can take with you, on condition that you replace it with another of the same value. This way, the content of the geocache is always changing. When you get home, you can comment on your adventure and report on whether you have found the cache.

Geocaching lets you discover a region through a treasure hunt that will delight children, an ideal activity for families and groups of friends! It’s also a playful way of introducing novices to the pleasures of hiking.
