Geocache Description:

This cache is the Headquarters for and has a unique cache type icon. Appointment necessary to log the cache.

Welcome to Geocaching HQ!


Please schedule a hosted visit to enter Geocaching HQ and log this geocache! Historically, geocachers were invited to log the HQ cache on Fridays only! You are now able to log the cache Monday through Friday by signing up for a hosted visit, typically scheduled in the afternoons. We kindly request that you email 48 hours in advance 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 HQ!

Geocaching HQ Hosted Visits

If we don't have a pre-scheduled time slot that fits your schedule, we'll do our best to find a date and time that works for you.

There will be no hosted visits scheduled Wednesday, August 12th through Friday, August 14th due to exclusive Block Party Tours. Please visit the HQ Tours page of the Geocaching Block Party website to view and register for full office tours during that.

What to expect during your HQ visit?
Once everyone arrives, you will be greeted by our staff and given a quick introduction to what we do at HQ. After a quick question and answer session, you are free to 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. Plan to spend 30 - 60 minutes with us. Before you visit us, we recommend finding the caches on the HQ GeoTour around our Fremont neighborhood.

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.
