Geocache Description:

This cache IS the Geocaching Headquarters, home of and has a unique cache type icon. Appointment necessary to log the cache.

Welcome to Geocaching HQ!


Note: Please email at least 48 hours in advance to make an appointment to visit or log the cache. We are open by appointment time only. We are a working office and unfortunately, we do not provide full office tours.


We love having members of the geocaching community come and visit us in our awesome lobby! We kindly ask that you do not just "drop in" but rather, please email to schedule your visit in advance via Tell us the date you'd like to visit, how many cachers (or muggles) to expect and their respective geocaching usernames, where you're visiting us from and any other fun facts about you.

Historically, geocachers were able to log the HQ cache only on Fridays! You are now able to log the cache Tuesday through Friday by appointment, typically scheduled in the afternoons. We kindly request that you email to schedule your visit to ensure we have enough space to accommodate all our visitors and are in fact open.

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.
