Stop in to log the official HQ geocache, grab any last minute gifts, and start the week with a merry good time!

Geocaching HQ Hosted Visits

Looking for more information about what we do here at HQ? Join a hosted visit where we close the lobby except to you: our VIP guests! Sign up for one of our special hosted visits scheduled on Monday, December 22nd, Tuesday, December 23rd, or Wednesday, December 24th. Please email us at to inquire about afternoon time slots and to reserve a spot as space is extremely limited. Please include the number of guests we should expect and your geocaching username(s). You'll receive an email confirmation of your hosted visit date and time.

Historically, geocachers were able to log the HQ cache only on Fridays! You are now able to log the cache Tuesday through Friday by signing up for a hosted visit, typically scheduled in the afternoons. We kindly request that you email to schedule your hosted visit to ensure we have enough space to accommodate all our visitors and are in fact open. We apologize but we do not allow "drop ins" at the HQ lobby.

What to expect during your HQ visit?
While you’re here, you can log the Geocaching HQ geocache, meet Geocaching HQ employees and other geocachers, shop at the store, trade trackables and take photos in our photo booth. We recommend finding the caches on the HQ GeoTour around our Fremont neighborhood. We can’t wait to meet you!

Are there any exclusive items you sell at headquarters only?
Great question! Yes, we have a small shop that sells geocaching supplies. Included are three exclusive items you can only get here: Geocaching HQ "Been There Logged That" T-Shirt, Signal Cafe Mug, and our HQ GeoTour Achievement Coin.
