Geocaching is played in over 220 countries across the world and in all 7 continents (including Antarctica) and the activity was originally referred to as GPS stash hunt or gpsstashing.There are more than 10 different types of caches including a mystery/puzzle cache which requires a puzzle solving in order to find the cache.
The only things you need to enjoy it are a GPS, good maps and a sense of adventure.
There are close to 1 million geocaching treasures hidden in the world and around 1,000 of them are in Estonia.
Short distances, beautiful wild nature and easy access attract many treasure hunters to come to Estonia – do not be surprised, if your treasure turns out to be something from Ethiopia, Greece or something else untypical of Estonia.
Where can you enjoy geocaching in Estonia?

Geocaching Special Requirements:
- Geocache can be sometimes hidden in hard-to-reach places (such as under water or up a tree) which may require a good physical shape or special equipment.
- Caches are hidden in everywhere (city or country) – so you may need transport sometimes (car, boat, bicycle).
- You might need a (digital) camera to get “proof” you found the “treasure”.
