Geocaching

Placing geocaches in and around the village will put Pentati on the worldwide treasure hunt map and encourage people to visit. Our geocaches will be listed at the bottom of this page as & when they are launched.

What is Geocaching?

This is probably best explained on www.geocaching.com but in short it is a global treasure hunt with 2,640,401 active Geocaches and over 6 million Geocache hunters (members) worldwide. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the Geocache (container) hidden at that location. The container can be of any size and would normally contain a guestbook for people to sign, some also contain an item for exchange. Once found the Geocache hunter logs this on the Geocaching website.

There are several different types of Geocache which can be seen here: https://www.geocaching.com/about/cache_types.aspx.
