Want to have a go at being Indiana Jones?
In Pays du Ternois, we can make it happen!
Bring a hiking GPS a road map and ... let the adventures begin!
Géomuche is a free game that was created by Pays du Ternois in collaboration with the ADTNT association (developing tourism using new technologies).
From Géocaching to Géomuche
A clever mix between a treasure hunt and a paper chase, Geocaching is a "high-tech" hike, that you can enjoy with a portable GPS and a few riddles to solve, for a tourist adventure unlike any other.
The activity consists in finding a "treasure" known as a "cache" using its geographic coordinates (GPS coordinates) during a walk in a natural environment, in town, alone or with family.
Whether you're an experienced hiker or simply a nature-lover, a high-tech geek or a total novice ready to give it a go, the Géocaching is for you.
It is first and foremost an open air activity to exercise both your legs and your head, bringing together new technologies (internet and portable GPS) and walks in the great outdoors, to enable you to enjoy the hidden 'treasures" of the world!
... to Géomuche
Geomuche is the result of a meeting between two big children, rocked by "Indiana Jones" and "The Mysterious Cities of Gold". The Association for the Development of Tourism via New Technologies (ADTNT) was created in 2005. The concept is Simple: inspired by Geocaching and transposed to the beauty of Ternois landscapes. On this site you can find a series of caches, renamed for this occasion "Muches" (hiding place in the local dialect) !
How to play Géomuche ?
Géomuche is a walking/hiking adventure course. You will need:
-> A hiking GPS. If you don't have one we can rent you one (check where the rental points are)
€5 per day or €10€ per weekend + deposit
-> Bring all of the equipment you will need for a short family hike
- comfortable walking shoes
- protection for your head like a cap
- some water
- a backpack
- your clue and a local map if possible
- don't forget your powers of observation and insight!
-> View the "muches" (cache) map
-> Print the road book for the "muche" that interests you
-> Head out into the terrain using your GPS while enjoying the beautiful landscape.
-> Once you've found it, let us know what you think!
When you've found the "muche", it is customary to leave a small object and take one of the others in the box. Don't forget to share your impressions in the visitors' book. Lastly, leave the "muche" exactly as you found it.
Keep a low profile, the survival of the "muche" depends on it...
