Geocoaching for Children & Adults: A great family activity!

With geocoaching you get started with a GPS device. Using various coordination points, you will be looking for the hidden treasure or object. Geocoaching is exciting, adventurous and a nice way to be occupied in nature.


At its most basic level, geocaching is a game where players use GPS receivers to track down a container, or cache. Caches may contain any number of small items, or they may only contain a logbook for players to sign to mark their find.

Before the cache can be found, a route must be walked and sometimes a puzzle has to be solved to get the next coordinates.

We offer geocaching hikes for children and also for adults.
