Cistes orienteering trail in Scaër

Similar to geocaching, the Tourist Office is offering routes around Scaër "in search of cists".

The game involves hiding boxes or other containers in the countryside, which can be found by answering a series of riddles. When someone discovers a cist, he or she retrieves the object hidden inside and replaces it with another object, leaving a message for the "hider".

This treasure hunt in Scaër is an opportunity to discover the region by going for a walk, but also by answering the questions asked.
