Geocaching is a type of “treasure hunt” which is, meanwhile, known worldwide. So-called caches are hidden at some of the world’s most stunning spots – by cachers for cachers. Once you register on the official geocaching website and have downloaded the app nothing need stand in the way of an exciting treasure hunt! Simply choose the region in which you are to see which caches are hidden near you. The GPS devices which used to be used for the navigation have now been replaced by a navigation system integrated in the app. Geocaching in Saalbach Hinterglemm is great fun thanks not only to the many hidden caches but the breathtaking mountain setting is an added plus and makes the whole geocaching adventure even more of a special experience.
From trend to lasting popularityThe first official geocache was hidden in 2000 although the idea of hiding and then searching for “treasures” has occupied us much longer. Many really enjoy hiding and searching for treasures of various kinds, sizes and types and then sharing this enthusiasm with the community.
Saalbach was one of the first holiday destinations to pick up on this trend and created many geocaching power trails. In the past few years, a wide range of geocaching hikes have developed alongside these. Many caches are hidden in the mountains waiting to be found!
Geocaching in the Home of LässigThe beautiful nature in the Glemmtal valley makes this popular recreational activity even more of a special experience. Clever kinds of containers, which only reveal themselves as such after a painstaking search, are hidden on the mountain, in the valley and on secluded mountain peaks. And surprisingly genuine looking roots and pine cones prove to be something very different on closer inspection!
Once the treasures have been found the cachers enter their names in the logbook (online or offline), leave a little something behind / or exchange the treasures and share their success with others from the geocaching community.
