Acadian Geocache Trail of Nova Scotia

The Conseil de développement économique de la Nouvelle-Écosse (CDÉNÉ) created the Acadian Geocache trail to encourage tourists / visitors / amateurs of the geocache game to stop and visit Acadian communities of Nova Scotia.

As of now, there are two (2) "caches" in each Acadian region for geocachers to discover. In addition to traveling to the Acadian regions of the province, geocachers can complete a passport to be awarded a prize (geocoin) if he finds at least four (4) out of the twelve caches belonging to our path (Argyle, Clare, Grand Pré, Pomquet, Isle-Madame, and Chéticamp). Geocoins are personalized with the Acadian flag and the map of Nova Scotia. The geocoins are equipped with tracking numbers to enable us to follow the promotion of Acadian tourism around the world when a participant decides to recycle his prize.

The passport, which must be used to win a geocoin, can be printed from our website by clicking here.

The participant must make a hole in his passport using the punch in the cache. Completed passports are to be sent to the project coordinator. As soon as the passport is validated with 4 holes, the geocoin is sent to the participant.
