We often hear geocachers say they love the game because they get to experience new places like a local. We love this about geocaching too. One way to make sure you’re exploring the best your destination has to offer is to check for a GeoTour!
GeoTours are special collections of caches designed to take geocachers like you on a journey through interesting places such as a town or city, a park, or historic sites. Not only do GeoTours guide you through a fun destination, but they also take you to some pretty cool geocaches. In fact, on average GeoTour caches earn more Favorite points than other geocaches. Plus Premium and Basic members have access to GeoTour caches of all cache types and Difficulty/Terrain ratings in the Geocaching® app. Bonus: if you find all the caches in a GeoTour, you’ll earn a unique souvenir.
Here’s how it works:
- Locals pick out the best places to hide new geocaches, including historic sites, parks, cities and more.
- Geocachers use the Geocaching® app to search the GeoTour directory and discover GeoTours around the world.
- The GeoTour guides you through your destination, exploring cool sites and earning smileys along the way!
Over 50 GeoTours offer geocachers custom-crafted adventures in locations like Northern Denmark, the Azores Archipelago, or the Great Lakes region of Ontario, Canada. GeoTours help you travel like a local, and provide unforgettable experiences along the way.
The next time you’re planning a trip, check out the GeoTours directory (on either web or mobile) to uplevel your travel and help you discover new places. Stay tuned for a dozen more to launch in 2019. Where will geocaching take you this year? Share in the comments!
