Geocaching in Jordan



Did you know that you can do geocaching in Jordan?

What is geocaching?

It's a modern, GPS-aided treasure hunting game played and enjoyed by adventure seeking people from all age groups and nations throughout the world.

Geocachers hide containers, called caches, in various places all around the globe
-in parks, outside of landmark buildings, alongside hiking trails, above and below ground, and even in local neighborhoods - for other members to find them.

There are more than 700,000 active geocaches around the world and their number keeps growing rapidly.

The location of all caches are published on the official geocaching website where members can learn the GPS coordinates of the hidden ’treasure boxes’ and log their experiences after they found them.

You’ll need a handheld GPS device to go geocaching.
