While Geocaching isn't a competitive game as such, many people who play it enjoy beating their personal-bests, completing various stats-based challenges, pushing themselves to solve difficult puzzle caches and difficult physical challenges too. To reflect this aspect of Geocaching, the Geolympix team is setting-up a selection of caches and series to give visitors the opportunity to achieve their geocaching goals.
  • AlphaBet You Can't Challenge - Find 26 caches, starting A-Z, in a day.
  • Icon Challenge - You may struggle to get 11 again, but see what you can do!
  • Size Matters Challenge - Find a Micro, Small, Regular, Large & Other.
  • D/T Grid Fillers - From a humble 1/1 to vicious, tricky 5/5. Find them all?
Take a look at the Challenges page for more details.
