Geocaching at destination Brocéliande

© Anikakodydkova

A very modern adventure!

As its name suggests, geocaching is a cross between orienteering and searching for hidden objects located in a treasure cache. In other words, it’s a 21st century treasure hunt, or a sort of paper chase using geolocation. You have a sat nav or smartphone instead of paper clues, and you share the excitement of finding the treasure online. 

Choose your team!

 

At Brocéliande, families and groups of friends can go geocaching all year round, and it’s free. This is a great way to explore natural and historic sites whilst having fun and getting some exercise. For half an hour or several hours, the thrill of the chase keeps you going! Whether you’re at the foot of historic ramparts or out on the moors, this activity generates terrific excitement.

 

 

Now It’s your turn!

Step 1: download the key data from one of Brocéliande’s tourist websites or borrow a sat nav. Next, use the co-ordinates that you’ve been sent. It’s up to you to follow landmarks, collect clues and solve riddles to reach the end of your quest. On your way, you’ll come across hidden caches containing surprises and gadgets. Be chivalrous, swap one object for another, fill in the logbook and then put the treasure back where you found it.

A JOURNEY THROUGH PLACE AND TIME

There are a number of geocaches scattered around Brocéliande. Sometimes those mischievous korrigans (little Breton elves) have hidden odd little curios. A nature trail with a route that can be followed by bike or by car follows in Merlin’s footsteps. If you delve deep into the secrets of the little town of Montfort, the children will be especially delighted by a cache that consists of riddles. At Bédée, around the calvary at Les Iffs, you’ll pass a variety of châteaux and churches on your way to the treasure. So just pick the playground you prefer!
