The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Geocaching has all you need to know to go from a total newbie to expert geocacher!
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which players use GPS technology to search for geocaches.
These are hidden or camouflaged containers placed all over the world by other members of the geocaching community – usually filled with knick-knacks and small items.
Geocachers obtain the coordinates for caches and log their findings – a bit like a modern day, high-tech treasure hunt.
While we will go into more detail about the specifics of geocaching later on in this guide, the basic premise as follows.
Players register on Geocaching.com, the most popular geocaching website, enter their postcode and obtain coordinates for geocaches around them.
