Introducing Wheel of Challenges

Tune in to the Wheel of Challenges each month to discover new geocaching challenges and earn souvenirs!

Step right up, geocachers, and get ready to have some good old geocaching fun with the Wheel of Challenges! Starting April 3, 2023, take on a new geocaching challenge every month for six months. Before the start of each month, we’ll spin the Wheel of Challenges to find out which challenge awaits. From seeing how many geocaches you can find in a month, to testing how long you can keep up a daily streak, you never know which challenge will be up next. Join the fun and watch as the Wheel of Challenges leads you to new souvenirs and sharper geocaching skills. Stay tuned to see the first spin of the Wheel of Challenges on March 28 and learn what challenge we’ll tackle in April.

You can find answers to some of our frequently asked questions below.

How do I find out which challenge is coming up next and how to earn souvenirs for it?
Geocachers must complete specific geocaching challenges each month in order to earn souvenirs for Wheel of Challenges. This means that the tasks to earn souvenirs will change month to month. In our newsletter, blog, and social media channels, we will reveal each month’s challenge and how to earn the related souvenirs on the Tuesday before the start of that month. Keep your eyes out for when we spin the wheel on March 28 and find out what April’s challenge will be, and how to earn new souvenirs.

When does each challenge start?
Each challenge will begin on the first Monday of the month. For challenges that involve the Leaderboard, those challenges will begin on the first Monday of the month at noon UTC (convert to your local time here). This means that challenges will begin on the following dates:

  • April 3, 2023
  • May 1, 2023
  • June 5, 2023
  • July 3, 2023
  • August 7, 2023
  • September 4, 2023

What are the souvenirs I can earn?
Each month of Wheel of Challenges will have two or three souvenirs available to earn. Players can earn the first souvenirs for challenges by completing an easier version of the challenge and earn subsequent souvenirs for challenges by completing more difficult levels of the challenge.

Where can I see my souvenirs?
Souvenirs appear on your profile on and in the Geocaching® app under the souvenir tab.

Geocaching® app: A page with information about Wheel of Challenges will be in the Geocaching® app at the beginning of the challenge on April 3, 2023. To see the page, go to your profile and tap on Wheel of Challenges to see your information about the challenge in the Geocaching® app.

Adventure Lab® app: The challenge and your souvenirs are not accessible in the Adventure Lab app at this time, however finding Adventure Locations will count toward earning souvenirs for the campaign.
