Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunt that combines being outdoors, exercise and technology. We have created the South Downs GeoTour to help you to discover the hidden gems in the National Park.
Anyone can play. Using the Geocaching smartphone app, GPS or paper map, you seek out secret caches hidden by other players – there are now more than two million stashed around the world. Sign up for a free account at geocaching.com and start playing today.
- A geocacher hides a geocache (never buried), lists it on geocaching.com and challenges you to find it using the Geocaching app or a GPS device.
- The geocaches will contain logbook for finders to sign. Once you’ve found it you log your experience online at geocaching.com or on a Geocaching App.
- Sometimes people will also leave small trinkets for trade in the cache. If you take something you should always replace it with something of equal or greater value.
- You then return the geocaches to the spot where you found it.
