What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an activity similar to a treasure hunt, is done outdoors and requires a GPS.
There are many versions of geocashing and we will use the version called multi-caches, where the first cache contains the coordinate to the next cache. Also, we took the concept of EarthCache and used a type of cache where the geocasher learns something unique on different aspects of the planet.
Geocaching activity on the Escapade Eskimo domain (Autumn season only)
Come and take a breath of fresh air on our magnificent trails while having fun! In autumn you will be amazed by the splendid colours of the leaves. In winter, you will have a chance to see animal tracks! The challenge is to find six different hidden boxes in the forest using a GPS. In each box you will find the GPS coordinate for the next point and a questionnaire on the trees in Quebec. For this activity, we can accept a group of twelve persons. No experience is required since we will provide training on how to use GPS. The trail used for this activity will vary between 2 to 3 km and the level of difficulty will vary from easy to medium.
