11.5. Tourism Initiatives
Geocaching Tourism is the perfect combination of travel and geocaching. Explore a new location by searching for geocaches that locals have hidden in places of general interest, historical importance and great natural beauty!
What better way to see the Greek Island of Naxos than to find the caches hidden by Yiannisp & E.X. that take you from the island's most famous monument, The Portara, to the summit of its highest mountain, Zas, and beyond?
You are in Africa, not Greece? What about finding the cache Sailors' Star at the Cape of Good Hope and learning from the cache page that, according to legend, the "pirate ship the "Flying Dutchman" haunts the waters around the cape? Most people probably would not know that fun fact without the tip from the local cache owner.
In addition to all of the great caches hidden by geocachers, several cities, parks and other locations have created geocaching programs to introduce geocachers to their area. This is a great way for them to attract more tourists, while geocachers benefit from the well-thought-out geocaches (and can sometimes even receive prizes).
See below for a list of Geocaching Tourism programs. If we failed to list a program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the program, its general location and the program URL. Thank you!
