What is geocaching?
Geocaching is a type of sport where people find hidden containers at various GPS points around the world. Participants download an app on their phone and then use their GPS to find or place a container.


These containers are called geocaches and usually contain something; a gift, instructions on where to find the next one, toys etc. The general rule is that if you locate a geocache and take something from it, then you need place something in the box as an exchange.


It is getting more and more popular over the years and there are millions of people currently registered in the GEO caching datatbase.


Geocaching in Farsund
Farsund is a perfect place to go geocache treasure hunting as there are many little islands and areas where they can be found.


You can use a boat to find them on various islands dotted around the coastline including one at the Katland lighthouse. If you do not have a boat, you can rent one from Farsund Båt and Motor.


They are also placed on land and some involve some hiking to get there. It is fun for the whole family.


You can find more information on the geocaching website where the app is downloadable.


Hiking
A large part of geocaching is hiking and Farsund has an array of hiking trips for people of all levels of fitness and expertise.


There are hiking possibilities at Bøensbakken, Lista and other areas. For example, next to the Lista Lighthouse is a forest line with old bunkers built by the Germans during World War 2. That is a nice hike where visitors can experience some history as well as enjoying the local scenery.
