Geocaching is a great way to explore the outdoors in Twillingate.
It is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. where players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online.
Currently, there are almost 50 caches, or hidden treasures, logged in Twillingate on the official Geocaching website. To participate, the first step, of course, is to visit Twillingate!

Generally a cache is a weatherproof container that is hidden that contains a logbook, pen or pencil and items of small value that are traded.

At its simplest level, simply look up online where the caches are, take a backpack, camera, pack a picnic and set out to explore. Like all games though, it gets more fun when participating with others and “following the rules”… but that is only for those with a bit of a competitive spirit!
