Get Yours

The Visit Utah GeoTour features five geocaches in each of Utah's 29 counties. That’s 145 caches in all, which makes it one of the largest geotours in the world. Utah tourism professionals worked alongside some of Utah’s most passionate geocachers to select locations characterized by extraordinary scenic beauty and cultural significance. You won’t want to miss any of them! It’s a perfect way to discover Utah’s lesser-known, but incredibly scenic and interesting locations throughout the state.

Found inside each geocache is a code card with a unique code and instructions to redeem GeoTour awards. After you’ve found three of any county’s five caches, go to the survey link found on any GeoTour cache page to claim a beautifully designed patch representative of that county  — so don’t forget to write down each geocache’s unique code once you’ve found it. After you’ve earned 10 patches, claim your Official Visit Utah Geocoin. If you’re ambitious enough to earn all 29 patches, claim your Utah GeoAmbassador Jacket!
