Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game. You need to use GPS-enabled devices like smart phones or GPS sat navigation to find them.

We show you how to go geocaching.

Seekers use the clues on the geocache website to navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates. Then attempt to find the geocache’s container hidden at that location.

How is Geocaching played?

At its simplest level, geocaching requires you to do these 8 things:

  • Register for free.
  • Visit the “Hide & Seek a Cache” page on the geocache website.
  • Enter your postal code and click “search.”
  • Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name.
  • Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device.
  • Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache.
  • Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location.
  • Share your geocaching stories and photos online.

What are the rules of geocaching?

  • If you take something from the geocache (or “cache”), leave something of equal or greater value.
  • Write about your find in the cache logbook.
