WHAT IS GEOCACHING REALLY?

As we have already mentioned, geocaching is a form of a sport, rather experienced as an adventure game made to awake the adventurer in you. Your main goal in geocaching is to hide or find different “treasure chests” that are rather called “caches” in the spirit of the game’s name. The most amazing thing about it is that you can find caches or hide them anywhere in the world and someone else will try to find them.

Basically, you are playing the game with millions of people involved by solely using GPS device and your tracking skills. If you are great with orienting and following GPS routes besides from enjoying treasure hunting, you will love this game. Geocaching exists in its current form and under its current name for 15 years now and looking back on the history of the game, geocaching draws its roots from 160 years back. Sounds amazing, but only because it’s true.
