About Letterboxing

A hand is grabbing a letterboxing from the roots of a tree

Letterboxing combines artistic ability with “treasure-hunting” in parks and forests that the whole family can enjoy. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues to their prize: a rubber stamp—often hand-carved—to stamp into one’s own personal logbook.

The basics are that simple, but you’ll find plenty of nuances to keep you busy on a rainy or snowy day (e.g. LTCs, postals or carving stamps and making logbooks for future use). Dig into some of the links below for more information.

Also consider picking up a copy of The Letterboxer’s Companion which has everything a budding letterboxer needs to know!
