Geocaching Journeys, Cache Away the Winter Blues!


Geocaching Journeys, a specialty group travel company owned by Conlin Travel is the brainchild of  Chris Conlin. An avid geocaching family, the Conlins decided to combine travel with geocaching and turn pleasure into business (Or is it the other way around?). To successfully match like-minded adventure seekers with all-inclusive trip itineraries is the goal of every Geocaching Journeys adventure.

January 22-29, 2011 is the next “geocaching journey.” Do you really need a better excuse to bop around the Hawaiian islands for seven days (round trip from Honolulu) aboard the Pride of America cruise ship? You’ll have nearly 100 hours of port time and unique itineraries on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii. The trip also includes enchanting nighttime sailing by Kilauea and cruising the breathtaking Napali Coast.

Key to the geocaching aspect of the adventure includes a designated Geocaching Journey tour leader and  a meet-and-greet group reception (Yes, muggles will also be on the cruise; you’ll probably be sun bathing all around them. You’ll need to know who is after pirate treasure and who is hunting travel bugs!). Attend special geocaching events with local island cachers, and don’t forget your exclusive Geocaching Journeys souvenirs.

If January in Hawaii doesn’t float your boat, consider the seven day Glacier Bay Alaska Cruise a little bit later on in the year (July 17-24, to be exact). Photos shown in this post were taken on the Alaska Geocaching Journey earlier this year. Visit the Geocaching Journeys website to read complete cruise details for both trips. Geocaching Journeys also offers other land-based adventures, including horseback geocaching in the wilds of Colorado. Rocky Mountain high, here we come!
