What are Geocaching Souvenirs? Souvenirs are virtual pieces of art that can be collected and displayed on your profile. They are generally awarded for caching in a particular location, on a particular date, or for one of Geocaching HQ’s souvenir challenges like the current Signal’s Labyrinth challenge.
Some souvenirs are awarded for logging a particular cache type during a specific time period. For example, you may earn a souvenir for attending or hosting a Geocaching International Film Festival event during GIFF week.
