The ultimate high-tech treasure hunt!! Geocaching is a great outdoor activity where you search for hidden containers using only a handheld GPS with geographical coordinates such as an iPhone. It is enjoyed throughout the world by people of all ages, and is a fantastic way to explore places that you have never been before. Kids particularly enjoy the idea of finding a treasure at the end of a hunt!
Most geocaches contain a log book to record all of the visitors and some small trinkets. When geocaching the etiquette is to replace any trinkets you take with one of your own so that the treasure will always be replenished. There are over 850,000 geocaches hidden around the world.
Make this a fun family activity while enjoying cottage country!
