Practical details for participation
What equipment is required to participate?
All accessories required for a scavenger hunt in Geneva to run smoothly are supplied at the start location of the scavenger hunt. Other than your cheerfulness, you don’t need to bring anything!
During which period do the scavenger hunts run?
The public scavenger hunts are held on Saturdays from April to November. To take part in our scavenger hunts in Geneva on another day, at another time or in another scenario, it is possible to privatise a Geneva scavenger hunt all year round!
What outfit is required to carry out an investigation?
To participate in the Geneva scavenger hunts of Quiveutpister Geneva, we advise you to wear comfortable shoes and an outfit to match the weather conditions. The start and arrival locations of each scavenger hunt in Geneva are located outdoor.
How long does a scavenger hunt last?
On average, our Geneva scavenger hunts take 2 hours 30 minutes, which includes 15 minutes for debriefing, 1 hour 30 minutes searching for clues, 30 minutes for brainstorming and 15 minutes for debriefing. This duration is merely an average and can vary depending on how dynamic and perceptive each participant is.
What are the prizes for the best hunters?
Each team is ranked according to points obtained based on correctly discovering clues, correctly solving the investigation and time taken to complete the trail. The best among them wins a prize consisting of a bottle of wine and/or an unusual guide. The bottle of wine is often a major incentive but it’s well worth fighting for the unusual guide!
What happens in case of bad weather?
A crime in the rain is a perfect crime! Bad weather does not affect the appeal of our scavenger hunts in Geneva. An umbrella + appropriate attire, and off you go for an exceptional adventure!
What is the minimum rate per person?
The rate for participating in a public session of a Quiveutpister scavenger hunt is 20CHF per participant. Some event-based scavenger hunts may involve different pricing. The price for privatisation is available upon request.
The principle of a scavenger hunt
Discovering a city through an investigation?
During a Geneva scavenger hunt by Quiveutpister Geneva, participants follow the indications of a road book. The road book leads them to tourism locations selected by a team specialised in creating activities for tourists. Tourism focal points and historical points are then presented to inform them about the locations they journey through.
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 receive very many French speakers and English speakers who are not from 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 addition to a rewarding experience, our various scavenger hunts were created with the aim of discovering the city in an original and different manner. They allow you to navigate through contemporary, historical, trendy or serene locations.

Scavenger hunts for kids?
Our Geneva scavenger hunts are not suitable for children below age 12, but they can still accompany their parents.
