What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played around the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Anyone can use coordinates found on to locate caches.

Who geocaches?

People of all ages! Each geocache listing has a difficulty and terrain rating. A 1/1 is easiest, a 5/5 the hardest. This allows you to seek a geocache suitable for their ability and fitness level.

What do you need to go geocaching?

A GPS device or GPS-enabled mobile phone and internet access through a computer or a mobile device. In addition, a free or premium membership with is recommended.
