Geocaching in Cyprus

A bridge too far?

We were recently introduced to the exciting and fun hobby of Geocaching.

Geocaching is a high tech form of treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers called caches. The hobby is worldwide with many caches being hidden on the beautiful Island of Cyprus.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and "treasure," usually toys or trinkets of little value. Seeking these caches is great fun and takes you to places you might otherwise never see.
In the short time we have been involved we have already found several caches and seen some hidden treasures such as quaint churches in the middle of nowhere that we would not have found in normal circumstances.
It is wise to make sure you wear sturdy footwear as you never know where your hunt for a cache might take you. A 4x4 vehicle is often advisable as some caches are down rough tracks not easily accessible with an ordinary saloon car. 
For a tutorial and other information on Geocaching go to

You will find a lot of useful information there and links to other useful sites.
I will update this post as we become more experienced in Geocaching ourselves.
The pictures are some of the places that Geocaching has taken us to.
