What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. Traditional geocaches contain small toys or other trade items and players are encouraged to leave an item of equal value for each item they take.

Geocaching is great way to find new places that are worth visiting!

All you need to get started is a smartphone and some trade items, like small toys, collectibles, or stickers. Keep in mind that whatever you leave in the box could be there for a long time and exposed to winter and summer temperatures, so no food items, no liquids, and nothing that will melt in the heat!
