How does a Foxtrail treasure hunt work?

Are you thinking of trying a Foxtrail? Wondering what our treasure hunts are like? Then this article is for you! Discover the answers to all your questions here.

Foxtrail : what is it? 

Foxtrail is an outdoor activity that gives you the opportunity to (re)discover Paris in a fun and interactive way. If you’re looking for an outdoor treasure hunt: you’ve come to the right place!

The scenario is simple: a clever little fox who likes having fun is hiding in the streets of Paris, and your mission is to find him by means of interactive clues, breaking codes, and hidden messages.

Each team is made up of 2 to 6 of your family, friends, or colleagues, but choose your team members carefully… only a sharp eye, listening skills, and teamwork will lead you to the cunning fox.

A self-guided treasure hunt that takes players on a journey solving clues through the streets of Paris, Foxtrail typically takes 2-3 hours along a designated route. To find out more about our concept :

How do we find the clues? 

Don’t worry! The fox sometimes leaves interactive puzzles for you to find, but you may also find one of his bright green signposts offering a hint. On every trail, he always has a surprise or two in store – but we cannot tell you much more without spoiling the fun!

And if you run into difficulties at any stage along the trail, you can call the Foxtrail Helpline, which will help get you back on course. If you have any further questions, please go to our FAQ!

Without giving too much away, this is what Foxtrail’s interactive clues look like…
