Geocaching is quite simply explained: by using GPS coordinates you search for hidden treasure boxes known as geocaches. The digital paperchase has become very popular around the globe. Even in the scenic Ötztal mountains you can indulge into this very special leisure time activity. In Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, treasure hunters equipped only with a printed map - even without GPS device - set out to explore the varied terrain. An exciting alternative or a good addition to the "hiking adventures" within the region.
Active guests receive a treasure hunting map in the local information office of Ötztal Tourismus. The 3 kilometer long route shown on the map leads about 1.5 to 2 hours through the Stone Pine Forest in Obergurgl, past several locations with hidden treasure boxes. Every single one contains a riddle, if you solve it and write the letters on the map you get the solution word. And what's best - your own little treasure is waiting to be picked up at the information office. For all those who are part of the online community: Of course, their find can also be logged at geocaching.com.
