Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour


7 Hamlets, 150 Caches, Infinite Fun

RATED #1 IN CANADA!

The Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour is a collection of 150 fun to find caches. Spread out through the Municipality of Highlands East, these caches will take you along quiet hiking trails, beside beautiful lakes and to interesting historic sites and points of interest.  The GeoTour caches can be downloaded for your GPS in one handy file from geocaching.com or find it on your phone app by searching for GeoTour GT5D.

Some are whimsical, some are wacky.  Some will have you scratching your head, while others will double you over in laughter. Be sure to read the descriptions for each cache they often contain valuable instructions and information, such as the hours that Cache #83, Check It Out is available.

If you are new to the game we'll get you started. Drop by the Visitor Information Centre in Wilberforce (mid May to Thanksgiving) for a 15-minute GeoTour tutorial, a map showing all the cache locations, a binder listing the cache details and a GPS, preloaded with coordinates. (GPS rental is just $5/day!)
