There are hundreds of geocaches hidden all around South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and 12 of them are ours!
Geocaching is a great way to get your friends and family out exploring. You just need a smart phone and a Geocaching App downloaded, or a GPS device, to take part. It’s modern day treasure hunting with all the benefits that being outdoors in a beautiful landscape brings!
A geocache or ‘cache’ is a small waterproof treasure box hidden outdoors. Geocachers seek out these hidden goodies guided by a GPS enabled device which uses coordinates, or ‘waypoints’.
Join the thousands of people in the Geocaching community. It is very easy to get started.
We have hidden 12 geocaches on rights of way all around the AONB. Find the full series here or search for 'Your South Devon AONB Landscape' on the Geocaching webiste. Our geocaches have been placed at a variety of locations along six established walks in the AONB, you can downloadable the guides from the right. Why not enjoy one of these whilst searching for a geocache, but be prepared to go off the beaten track to hunt for them!
A ‘travel bug’ is a trackable object which is placed in a geocache. When the bug is found, the cacher moves it onto a new location and logs the move on the Geocaching website. We have hidden an AONB travel bug in one of our boxes and will be tracking its progress to see how many of the 46 AONBs in the country it can find its way to!
