Just arrived in the city and keen to explore?
Maybe you've lived here for years and looking for something a little different this weekend. Well we created Urban Hunt for exactly these reasons. Ditch the walking tours, mix up your weekends and challenge your mates to a cryptic scavenger hunt with us!
What's the deal?
Urban Hunt offers a variety of interactive scavenger hunt trails in cities around the world, with an aim to bring every aspect of the these urban jungles to life. Uncover hidden gems (even the locals miss!), take a unique look at local hotspots in ways you never imagined and uncover the history hidden in the shadows. The cryptic nature of our trails ensures you fully engage in these self-guided adventures and in no time at all you'll find yourself discovering exciting and unexpected aspects of a local area. Think you're a local eh? Born and bred? This ain't no walk in the park. We can guarantee you'll be amazed at the hidden details we find along our trails and be left wondering why you never knew they existed! Why not challenge your family and friends to see just how well you know your streets?
Learn something new
One of the most loved features are our 'Did you know' facts you receive on route. Thoroughly researched, short and interesting facts of the immediate area are sent to you after each clue including supporting photos, videos and even quality GIFs to ensure a fully immersive experience. Even locals who've lived in the city for decades have uncovered a world of knowledge right on their doorstep.
The perfect group event
Impress your friends with our secret cocktail bar adventure or strengthen employee relationships with a custom company trail, the options are endless! We make it easy for you to organise and run group events. You can go the whole hog and have your very own route, leaderboard, registration page and venue deals or pick from one of our popular trails and get started right away. No matter your budget, there's an adventure too be had.
