Perhaps you’ve already heard about geocaching or maybe you are an experienced pro?
Here at the Wilderness office in the Highlands, we’ve really been bitten by the geocaching bug! While the rest of the UK has been getting pelted with rain we’ve been out in the Wilderness navigating, seeking out and trading some pretty cool collectibles. Read on to learn more.
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching has been on-the-go for a while now, with some 5million geocachers worldwide it’s played individually or as part of a team in over 200 countries, across seven continents including Antarctica – it’s even being played on the International Space Station! Players use a Global Positioning System or GPS, and navigational techniques, to hide-and-seek small containers that have been specifically placed and located – otherwise known as geocaches! I suppose you could call it a high-tech, 21st century version of hide-and-seek.
