Geocaching HQ is where the tools for your geocaching adventures are created and maintained. From the wickedly smart developers, to our artistic geniuses, to the community and volunteer support teams, Geocaching HQ is where all the magic happens.
We’re excited (and frankly a little flattered) that you’re interested in coming to visit us. Stop by during drop-in hours if you're interested in entertaining yourself here at HQ’s Visitor Center. You can log the HQ geocache, shop in our gift shop, and even collect a new souvenir on your account!
A limited number of hosted visits are scheduled each week where we invite guests into our Visitor's Center for a look into what's buzzing around HQ. During these hour long visits you'll be hosted by a lackey in our Visitor's Center, learn about Geocaching, hear what new things we're working on, discover rare and unique trackables, shop at the HQ store, as well as log the official Geocaching HQ geocache. To get signed-up, register for a hosted visit.
Can't make a hosted visit or want to stop by quickly? Drop-in at HQ during the pre-scheduled drop-in hours. During drop-in hours visitors get to entertain themselves by finding the geocache, trading trackables, or shopping in the HQ store. Check out our upcoming drop-in hours.
Before your visit, we encourage you to check out our amazing neighborhood, Fremont, by completing the Geocaching HQ GeoTour. Print out your GeoTour passport at home, then stamp the spaces as you find each geocache. These nine geocaches will lead you to some of the best geocaches in the neighborhood as well as great shops, restaurants, and sights. The entire walking GeoTour takes 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. Once completed, bring your passport to your hosted visit and we’ll top it off with a gold stamp of completion.
To get started, schedule your visit.
