Geocaching: Join us for our bank holiday treasure hunt
Satnav system
Use your satnav, GPS device or even a map for our geocaching hunt

BBC Cambridgeshire is launching its first ever geocaching event - a hi-tech GPS-led treasure hunt, and we want you to join in.

On 3 May we'll hide one of our presenters and boxes of treasure in the countryside and give out the co-ordinates.

You can use your satnav, maps or sleuthing skills to locate both.

You might even discover some new parts of your county. Find the presenter. Find the treasure. Find an adventure!

Geocache locations

BBC Cambridgeshire's hi-tech treasure hunt will get you out and about, exploring the remote and the rural and giving everyone the opportunity to get outside in the fresh air, discovering some parts of the county that you never knew existed. It's free, it's fun and it's for everyone.

Keep the bank holiday free and join us for a spot of geocaching on Monday 3 May.

We've hidden 10 geocaches across Cambridgeshire in the following places:

• Geo Stow Cum Quy
• Geo Ramsey
• Geo RAF Mepal
• Geo Pampisford
• Geo March
• Geo Kimbolton
• Geo Hinxton
• Geo Hauxton
• Geo Ely
• Geo Duxford

Our geocaches vary in size from teeny-tiny to the size of a large lunchbox.

One of our presenters is missing

In addition to our geocaches, we've also hidden one of our presenters. We've put her out to pasture in a field somewhere in Cambridgeshire!

To find the mystery presenter, listen for clues we'll be giving out on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire throughout bank holiday Monday between 10.30am and 5pm.

Trust us, you'll know when you've found her.

And if you need a little extra help, try this for size... N 52 16.234 - E 000 17.821

Listen in on 96FM, 95.7FM, 1026AM, DAB and online.

More about geocaching

Geocaching is a global phenomenon, a hi-tech treasure hunt for the adventurous, using GPS devices (Global Positioning Systems - the technology used in satnavs).

The idea is to locate containers, called geocaches, hidden somewhere in the great outdoors and then share your experiences online.

Indiana Jones

Think about it - when was the last time you got a little breathless? When did you last feel a tiny rush of adrenaline? When did you last ditch the remote control for the remote wilderness?

It's time for a little adventure. A little fun. A little action. It's time to let your inner Indiana Jones loose.

Thrillseeker

If you need a different kind of thrill then why not try a new adventure on the BBC Thrillseeker website?
