Go on a treasure hunt

A treasure hunts don’t have to involve real gold. Geocaching involves hunting for hidden containers called ‘geocaches’ near your location, using the free Geocaching app or GPS. After finding the geocache, players sign and date the logbook and return it to its hiding place. With over three million geocaches around the world, you’re sure to find some near you – and it will make your Boxing Day walk all the more fun. [Photo: Flickr/Robert Todd]

Ellie Ross

Christmas Day is all about staying indoors – eating your fill of turkey with all the trimmings, unwrapping presents and watching a festive film or two with a glass of mulled wine in hand.

And the good news is that this can be completely free.

So, whether you’re looking for fireworks, a workout or even Santa’s reindeer – we have the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve all wrapped up.
