Geocaching

About

Geocaching is a family friendly activity and a great way of seeing more of the great outdoors. The Isle of Man is an extremely attractive destination for geocaching due to its extensive countryside and rural location.

The basic idea of geocaching, is that adventure seekers (equipped with GPS devices) hunt for containers that have been hidden by other geocachers. The GPS co-ordinates can be found on the official geocaching website, where you can also find information on how to get started. It's free to create an account so that you will be able to view the GPS co-ordinates of all the geocaches, including those hidden in the Isle of Man. Then put your walking boots on and start exploring!

Once a geocache has been found the seeker signs the logbook contained inside and returns the cache to its original position ready to be found by the next seeker. You should also log your find online and tell everyone a little about the experience. Walking one of the geocaching trails is an excellent way to enjoy the great outdoors and even gets the children be.

If you're a keen walker, why not try finding the 46 geocaches hidden along the Millennium Way, which was established in 1979 to celebrate the Millennium year of Tynwald, the oldest continuous parliament in the world. At a distance of 28 miles (45 kilometres) the Millennium Way runs from Ramsey in the north to Castletown in the south and can be completed over 1, 2 or 3 days.

In each geocache you will find a unique code on the log sheets to uncover a riddle. For the first 200 completed passports received, the commemorative geocoin will be free of charge. You can keep in your collection or release to travel from cache to cache spreading the word about the Millennium Way. To take part, download the passport on this page.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a bigger challenge, why not attempt to discover the 230 geocaches hidden along the prestigious Raad ny Foillan coastal route. At almost 100 miles long, this is not for the faint hearted! To find our more, click here.
