#TravelCaching Resource - Pin

Being travelers who love to Geocache, we have found GeoTours and GeoTrails to be a really fun way to explore a destination…and go Geocaching!  But we realized that there was no solid place online to find a comprehensive list of GeoTours & GeoTrails that was organized by destination.  So we set out to create one. Introducing “TravelCaching” – a new resource on our website for GeoTours, GeoTrails, and vacation planning!

Now Geocachers can save time searching for GeoTours and GeoTrails (or planning their trips), which means more time for discovering caches!

Find GeoTours & Trails Easily on our Website

We have created a sub-page on our “Geocaching” section of our website for TravelCaching.  All the information is broken down by region, making it easy for you to search for GeoTours & Trails for your destination.

In addition to official GeoTours, we wanted to include GeoTrails that may not be deemed “official” but do have the backing by an official organization, such as a tourism board.

Some of the bigger tours actually link to a “tour” page on our site, which gives you more details about the tour and the organization who sponsors it.  Others will take you directly to a bookmark of caches on Geocaching.com.

What is a GeoTour or GeoTrail?

GeoTours (or GeoTrails) are a “Tour” of a destination through a series of geocaches that are set up by an organization or individual.

There are a wide variety of tours all over the world, and especially in the USA.  In fact, many state and local tourism boards have discovered how Geocaching can enhance a tourist’s experience though GeoTours or GeoTrails.

Each GeoTour or GeoTrail is unique, and often provides an entertaining and deeper understanding of the destination.  Some will have specific themes, while others will have prizes at the end for finishing the entire tour.

Let Us Know if We Missed Any!

Gathering this information was a big undertaking, so it’s possible that we have missed some great tours out there.  Please click on the “contact us” button below (or add in the comments) if we missed one.

** NOTE: Currently we are ONLY listing official (Permanent) GeoTours or GeoTrails that have the backing of an organization, such as a tourism board.  We also require that they either have their own website for the trail, and / or they provide some kind of reward for completing the tour.  Sorry, the line had to be drawn somewhere.  Thanks!
