It’s not just the majestic coastlines and Victor Hugo that make Guernsey a great place to explore; there are plenty of treasures to be found all around the Island, some more hidden than others. Now we have put together a scavenger hunt of our own! Find one of the 3 caches that we’ve hidden across Guernsey and get 50% off day trips as well as a chance to win free travel with Condor Ferries. See if you can guess the locations where they are concealed from the clues opposite.

Our scavenger hunt was inspired by Geocaching, a game in which you have to find hidden packages that have been put in the most unlikely of places, yet quite often in plain sight. There are millions of geocaches hidden around the world - there are probably some near you right now.

 

 

Guernsey is home to over 400 of these small stashes, which look like anything from large green ammunition boxes to small hollowed out pebbles. The player-base is huge and the people who play the game keep track of their findings on the official Geocaching website.

 

 

Geocaching is a well-known activity around the Island, and as we went about hiding our own caches, we came across some avid hunters who told us the best places to go searching for them. One local, Jane, has tracked and logged over 90% of the geocaches in Guernsey by making the hunt a weekend hobby. “The community is very welcoming over here, all you need is a good pair of boots and a phone, and you’re set! Jane showed us a few pictures of her recent explorations, including a find that was half way up a cliff face. “Some are very simple to find, but others I’ve spent all day looking for and had to come back the next day to start all over again.”

 

 

CONDOR FERRIES SCAVENGER HUNT

In the spirit of exploration, we’ve hidden 3 of our own boxes around Guernsey that contain prizes and treats! See if you can find each of them with the descriptions below. Remember to put them back as you found them for the game to continue! GOOD LUCK!

 

 

1 Away with the Fairies:

Known to the locals as The Cave of the Fairies, Le Creux és Faies is an ancient burial tomb dating back to the Neolithic period. As you venture inside this spooky passage, the dark grey support stones should point you in the right direction.

A. THE VIEW
(N 49° 26.111 W 002° 40.332)

Difficulty: 1 out of 5

Terrain: 1 out of 5

Size: Medium

Contents:

• Log book and pen

• Something to start a fire

• Something to light your way

• Something that might come in handy

• Something collectable

B. PORT SOIF series
(N 49° 29.356 W 002° 34.825)

One for the more determined hunters out there, this geocache is off trail and some climbing of rocks is required. It’s a nano cache so remember to bring your pen as there is only enough room for a log book strip. Tweezers would also be useful. Please re-hide securely and exactly as you find it.
