Geocaching

Geocaching is often described as a 'game of high-tech hide and seek'. Discover Banff National Park through geocaching. Fun for the entire family.

On January 10, we will be launching a five piece geocache circuit as an interactive way to discover extraordinary places within Banff National Park.  We're taking a closer look at the all important element of water, how it has ebb and flowed through the Park for centuries and how important it is to the ecosystems around us. After all, it is the main composition of snow and we're all about celebrating anything related to winter!  Test your skill by finding one or all of our geocaches! The first 100 people to find all 5 of the caches will be rewarded with a collectible coin.  

Up for a fun and engaging challenge?  Seek out all 5 SnowDays geocaches and reap the reward! Check back before January 10 to download a SnowDays geocaching "Passport" or pick up one up at the Banff Visitor Information Centre before your journey.  We'll provide the tools for you to etch/stamp a picture into your passport to indicate you found each cache. Once you've gone to all five geocache locations and stamped your passport, you've earned yourself a SnowDays collector coin.  Then stop by the Banff Lake Louise Tourism desk at the Banff Visitor Information Centre to collect your special coin.  Last step, give yourself a pat on the back for successfully seeking out all 5 geocaches!!  Way to go!
