Geocaching in Nova Scotia Parks – Passport Program

Geocaching in Nova Scotia provincial parks is a fun, outdoor pursuit that the whole family can enjoy. Fifteen geocaches are distributed across Nova Scotia, encouraging new and experienced Geocachers alike to discover and explore locations they may have never been before.

You can choose to either complete the passport by theme or by region. As you visit each geocache, punch the appropriate location on the passport. You can submit the passport as you complete each region to receive the corresponding geocoin, or by theme to receive the geocoin for each theme.

Geocachers who complete all fifteen caches will receive a total of six geocoins – three region and three theme geocoins.
