"The City of Richmond GeoTour is the first Official GeoTour of a Canadian City on geocaching.com."
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game that uses a smartphone or GPS device. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates to find the prize - a hidden geocache container. Did you know that there are over 7 million geocachers worldwide and 3 million active geocaches?
The Richmond GeoTour: “Canada 150 Series” features 20 geocaches in locations throughout Richmond along with a new passport. Log all 20 new caches with their secret words, and submit your passport to earn a trackable Geo-Coin or Geo-Tag.
*NEW* Adventure Labs
Check out the two new Adventure Labs in Richmond!
The Geocaching Adventure Lab is an app that allows users to compete in engaging scavenger hunts. Adventure Labs differ from traditional geocaching in that they don't feature physical cache containers, just pure virtual exploration, problem-solving and fun. Some creators (like us) will add on a physical bonus cache with clues on how to find it.
What is the Richmond GeoTour
The Richmond GeoTour is a series of 50 hidden geocaches in parks, on trails, and at community facilities. On quests, explore the Island city and discover Richmond's unique natural and cultural heritage. Find all caches in each of the series to receive a prize.
