Harvey - SOHA Geocaching

Join the hunt!

Start by choosing a jump on point below, grab your GPS and go!

Geocaching is a fun way to learn how to use a GPS. Small treasure boxes are at each spot, containing a log book, information about the area and small trinkets for young visitors. There are also stickers for you to collect if you are doing the big tour.

Please record your log and follow the instructions. If you take a trinket, leave something behind for the next visitor.

Each point will take you to choices for the next spot on the tour. There are many different types of experiences offered throughout the tour. Some of the spots may take you on a bit of a hike, but all sites are related to the history of the area.

No GPS? No problem! Visit any of the heritage sites on the map or one of our local Visitor's Info Centres and ask for the "SOHA Treasure Map" to help Harvey the Heritage Hound find the treasures hidden throughout the South Okanagan!
