Geocaching is a treasure hunt for the digital generation. It’s a fun outdoor activity
involving the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) devices to hide and seek containers called geocaches or ‘caches’, anywhere in the world.
A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook in which the
geocacher enters the date it was found and signs it with their established code name. Larger plastic storage containers or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little financial value. Once a cache is found and the log book signed, it should be returned to its original location.
There are many caches to be found across the Vale – see our downloadable flyers below for more details:
