Itinerary Details

Operated by: Sherlock's Challenge

An outdoor fantasy treasure hunt for the curious!

Our magical class will walk you through the Old Town streets identifying and learning all about the fantastic creatures that inhabit them.

You will need a team of 2-4 wizards, internet access on your phone, your eyes and legs! We will provide the kit. The game takes around 1.5 hours (more or less depending on the group). It covers a good portion of the historic Old Town and lots of folklore.

Your host will meet up with you to provide instructions and will be in touch via WhatsApp throughout. You will then explore the city following the clues that will take you from one spot to the next, unravelling the secrets behind the faerie folk.

By joining you are agreeing to take care of the kit and return it at the end. Come prepared to walk. It finishes a 10 minute walk from where it starts.
