Discover our outdoor treasure trails
Uncover the hidden history of Northumberland National Park, with an exciting outdoor adventure fit for the digital era, offering hours of fun for treasure hunters of all ages.
We have several Historic Heritage Geocaching Trails to help introduce more people to the popular treasure-hunting sport of geocaching and the history and heritage of the magical county of Northumberland. All you need to get started is a handheld GPS device or suitable mobile phone.
Simply input the coordinates specified for each location into your device or GPS smartphone* app and let it guide you to eight ‘caches’ hidden in unique locations across all corners of the National Park, from the south-west corner at Thirlwall Castle to the northerly point of Ad Gefrin near Wooler.
These waterproof treasure boxes are filled with hidden goodies such as trinkets and a logbook, which you can leave your own message in.
