All about scavenger hunts

What is a scavenger hunt?

A scavenger hunt is an activity in which you follow a trail marked out by clues. Thanks to the clues you collect by solving riddles, you'll reach the end of a trail strewn with pitfalls. Clues can be a treasure map, a roadmap, a puzzle, keywords or a scroll.

The different types of scavenger hunt: everything you need to know to choose the right adventure.

Today's scavenger hunts have evolved considerably, and there are many different types of treasure hunt:

  • Classic trails: you'll be given a paper trail, a pencil and a map. Once you've set the scene, you follow the instructions to investigate and solve the challenges step by step. There's a starting point and a finishing line, usually the conclusion of the puzzle. The terrain can cover a neighborhood, or even an entire city. So bring good shoes!
  • Outdoor escape games: taking part in an escape game means trying to solve a riddle as a team in order to get out of the place in which you're trapped. A scavenger hunt alternates physical challenges and questions. In both cases, fun is guaranteed.
  • Geocaching : with your GPS, usually on your smartphone, you have to find caches all over the world. These boxes are full of little scavenger, usually worthless trinkets!
  • Digital tre asure hunts: for some time now, digital enigmas have been making their appearance. The growing use of smartphones has led to the development of a new type of fun game. Using a QR code, a web page or similar, you can locate clues to solve the investigation. There are no animators here, just a cell phone to guide you and help you find the solution to the enigma!
  • Treasure hunts: this fun, group activity is particularly popular with children.
  • Murder parties: the aim here is to solve an investigation and find the culprit behind a crime. Popular with companies and birthday parties alike, Murder Parties were made famous by the game Cluedo. Here, you'll have to conduct the investigation like a real detective.

A free or paid scavenger hunt? Don't overlook quality!

Would you like to play for free? It's possible! There are two solutions. Either opt for a free online version to download or print out. Alternatively, you can create riddles for the children to think about in order to discover the treasure.

Paid games, however, are generally of much higher quality. The challenges and puzzles to be solved are more elaborate, and the treasures more rewarding.

If you're organizing a scavenger hunt in Paris, we highly recommend Qui Veut Pister's "Crime à Saint-Germain" scavenger hunt. You can solve an investigation in the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Or opt for a treasure hunt in Montmartre, one of Funbooker's biggest successes. Le Complot de l'Oeillet in the Marais is also a must with great historical anecdotes.
