Geocaching is a world-wide, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location with the help of a few basic clues. Geocaching is an excellent activity for people of all ages; everyone loves a good treasure hunt!
We have a full Geocaching Kit available to rent, which includes a GPS unit with a huge assortment of caches (treasures) pre-programmed, as well as print outs of all 41 geocaches hidden in the area and helpful maps. We’ll teach you how to use the GPS unit, and what to do when you find your first geocache. We’ll also help you set up your own free geocaching account so you can log your finds and continue the treasure hunt when you return home from your vacation. There are geocaches all over the world, and there is even one aboard the International Space Station!
The local Geocaches are organized into five areas:
Corduroy Brook Pond Nature Reserve
Corduroy Brook Pond Nature Reserve is perfect for a family getaway any time of year. This pristine reserve is located in Grand Falls-Windsor just 20km east of the chalets, and is home to 15 separate geocaches!
TransCanada Highway/Trail Caches
If you’re looking for something to do on your way to or from town, why not try the TransCanada Highway/Trail caches? There are 6 caches hidden along the highway in some very unique and beautiful locations!
Exploits River Water Caches
If you’re looking to combine a great day on the river with a fun day of treasure hunting, you should consider trying the Exploits River water caches! There are 7 caches hidden on the remote shoreline or on the ruggedly beautiful islands along our self-guided canoe/kayak tour
In the little community of Badger just 10km west of us you can find 6 geocaches scattered throughout town and along the Exploits River. You could drive to Badger, take your quad/ATV, or rent one of our mountain bikes and make an adventure out of it!
