    Our 5 tips for apprentice geocachers:
    1 – Prepare yourself: choose your boxes before leaving, mark your route and the location of the cache. If you are new to Geocaching, do not hesitate to explore the application before looking for your first cache. Good preparation will prevent you from returning empty-handed.
    2- Keep your eyes opened: you will find the boxes within approximately 5 meters of the coordinates indicated. The clue mentioned will help you guess its location. Use your powers of observation and your senses to find the boxes!
    3 – Show discretion: be discreet when discovering a box, their location must remain secret in order to guarantee their preservation and the pleasure of the next geocacher.
    4- Play the game: sign the logbook and leave it in the box to allow the game to run smoothly. It is also essential to put the box back in the exact place where you discovered it.
    The box may sometimes contain items dropped by the cache owner or other geocachers. If you want to take one, you must leave something in exchange of equal value (excluding food). Please note, if the object bears an inscription followed by a number, it is a travel object carrying a mission (to find out about the mission, go to on the magnifying glass then the travel object tab and enter the tracking number of the object). If you don't want to complete the mission, leave it in the box.
    5- Share the adventure: geocaching is based on kindness and sharing between geocachers. Your comments and shared experiences when validating a box will be visible to other participants. Good practice by all will allow everyone to benefit from the experience.
