The principle of a scavenger hunt

Discovering a city through an investigation?

During one ouf our scavenger hunts in Lyon, participants follow the indications provided in a road book. The road book guides them to tourist locations selected by a team specialised in creating activities for tourists. At these locations, participants discover tourism focal points and historical landmarks, where they receive information to enrich their journey.

Do you have to be a great connoisseur of the city?

It’s not necessary to know the city in order to participate in our scavenger hunts. We welcome many English speakers who are not familiar with the city. Besides, the locals – thinking they know their neighbourhood – often find themselves going in the wrong direction while non-local participants correctly follow the itinerary by simply reading the road book.

What is the goal of your scavenger hunts in Lyon?

In addition to a rewarding experience, our various scavenger hunts were created with the aim of discovering the city in an original and unique manner. They allow you to explore contemporary, historical, trendy or serene locations.
