Geocaching is a fun and rewarding outdoor adventure that combines hiking and treasure hunting. Given the latitudinal and longitudinal co-ordinates, participants use their GPS (Global Positioning System) unit to locate the hidden "cache", a small box with a logbook to record their visit. Geocaching is a great family activity that provides excitement, exercise, and fresh air.

Geocaching provides you with an opportunity to learn about the unique natural and cultural heritage of the national park at your own pace. The geocaches in Pukaskwa National Park tell the story of how this land was formed and how it has changed over time. Whether this is your first visit or you have been to the park many times, this challenging adventure will make you see Pukaskwa in a brand new light and confirm it as one of Canada’s national treasures.

A GeoTour is a series of related geocaches along a route or in a region that tell a story. Find out how you can participate in Parks Canada's Heritage Hide'n'Seek GeoTour in northern Ontario.
