  • Treasure Hunt with the family on an international geocaching vacation


    Planning a vacation for the whole family can be quite an exhausting endeavor for parents. Choosing an activity that everyone enjoys is an unenviable task, particularly with small children. For parents seeking a lively adventure that is sure to engage family members of all ages, an international geocaching excursion may be the perfect choice.

    Geocaching is an active outdoor sport that resembles a high-tech game of hide-and-seek. In the game, participants use a GPS receiver to track down containers or "geocaches" strategically hidden at locations around the world.

    These caches are typically small waterproof containers containing a logbook to document its latest discovery, though some have been known to contain toys or small treasures for the daring and fortunate travelers that find them.

    The activity combines high tech acumen with hiking and exploration, providing a unique outdoor experience for families seeking to enjoy the outdoors together.

    In recent years, geocaching has grown in popularity, bringing the total number of active geocaches located around the world to more than 950,000, according to Roughly 100 countries currently harbor a geocache, with at least one located on every continent including Antarctica.
