Signal’s packing for Canada and he’s bringing…

A country souvenir for Canada!

Canada has many wonders: diverse landscapes, rich history, and abundance of adventures. Plus, plenty of geocaches near and far to show you every corner of this beautiful country—and now, Canada has the added bonus of being the latest addition to the geocaching country souvenir collection!

If you’ve already found a geocache in Canada, you’ll automatically receive the souvenir on your profile over the next few days. Souvenirs that are currently available can be found here. You can view which ones you’ve already earned by checking out your Souvenirs on Geocaching.com.

Don’t forget to attend any event this weekend July 1 or 2, 2017, to earn the Where’s Signal? Canada Day 2017 souvenir, too!

In celebration of Canada’s souvenir, we’re featuring the northern, southern, eastern, and western-most geocaches you can find in the land of the maple leaf.

Northernmost geocache: Williams Island in Nunavut (GC60BX6)

As the cache details page explains, “Taking a boat out in the summer, or hiking out over the ice in the early spring are the recommended ways to reach Williams Island (although helicopter rides in the early summer are possible too!).” This cache definitely earns its T5 rating for its remote location! Perhaps that’s why the FTF is still up for grabs…any takers?!

Southernmost geocache: Spitting South – No Offence, Eh? In Ontario Canada (GC4T9GJ)

Extending into Lake Erie from Ontario is Point Pelee, the southernmost point of Canada. Visit this EarthCache and you can learn how sand spits are formed, view migrating birds, and explore over 750 native plant species.

Easternmost geocache: NL – Tip of the Tip EC in Newfoundland/Labrador (GC4G4A5)

Located on the Avalon Peninsula, this EarthCache is the easternmost point in Canada. While you’re here, be sure to visit the Cape Spear Lighthouse cache (GCEE24) and Extreme East (GCWJZ3) to make it a trifecta of eastern Canada caching!

Westernmost geocache: Beaver Creek Rendezvous – Alaska Hwy Mile, Yukon Territory (GC2DPC4)


Beaver Creek is the most westerly community in Canada and about a 25 minute drive to the US/Canada border by way of the Alaska Highway. Although this is called Beaver Creek, it’s not uncommon for geocachers to see brown bears nearby!

    Thank you Geocaching HQ!

    hee hee, the country that has the 2nd largest amount of caches in the world finally makes the list. At least it is a really nice design.

  • Great Scott

    Hmm…The country with the largest amount of geocaches doesn’t yet have a souvenir.

  • Dave A.

    Well… They already have souvenirs for every province in Canada, so you would be getting two souvenirs the first time you geocache in the country. The US has the most geocaches, Great Scott.

  • Great Scott

    Right…the USA does have the most geocaches. But the USA doesn’t have a souvenir.

    Great article, I just wish that every someone mentions Canada, they don’t have to say, (or type,) eh. I think the rest of the world uses it more than Canadians do.

  • JimRKY

    …I can’t remember getting a USA Souvenir when I got my 1st cache…hmmm…AHA! I have it! That’s the Mary Hyde’s treasure: a USA Souvenir!!! (maybe?)

  • CBlake

    My family is from Upper Peninsula Michigan and they all say it. (Though many from that area are formerly from Canada)

    Exac

  • Dave A.

    (Sorry for the half-post) Exactly. The US has a souvenir for every state also, but not a country souvenir.
