Canada 150+ Geocaching Adventure

We chose to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial by putting some skin in the game of geocaching – and we hope you enjoy every moment of the hunt. Celebrate the rich history of the region and get a little something to take home.

Download our Travel Diary, find at least one cache in each community, and use the stamp inside it to prove you were there. You can create a rubbing with the crayons or pencil provided or you can bring your own stamp pad or marker.

Each community (8 Townships, 2 First Nations, and the City of Peterborough) will have matching stamps within their caches. You only need to find one per community, or 11 unique stamps in total, to complete your Travel Diary and collect your limited edition Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism (PKT) trackable geocoin.
