Geocaching is an entertaining outdoor treasure hunting game for all ages played throughout the year by walkers, hikers and adventure seekers. Combining hiking with treasure hunting, all you need is a map and a GPS unit (global positioning).
The longitude and latitude coordinates for each cache – a waterproof box of different sizes containing a logbook, paper and assorted trinkets – are shared on the internet. Geocachers use their GPS device to search for these caches hidden at various points along hiking trails or in other locations.
Geocaching is enjoyed by people with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.
Geocaching perfectly fits to Amorgos’ wonderful walking and hiking opportunities and will give you an additional experience whilst exploring the islands amazing landscape.
Meanwhile a number of geocaches have been located on the island. They are situated in a variety of locations; some will take you to beaches, some will test your urban stealth skills, and yet others will take you to areas of rugged beauty where people are very rarely seen!
