The Iconic Day Challenge is a type of Challenge Cache.



The Iconic Day Challenge requires you to find a certain number of cache types all in one day. Usually, a geocacher would need to find six different cache types all in one day to complete the challenge.  Variations exist with both lower and higher requirements. 

A Super Iconic Day is a version of the challenge that typically involves finding ten caches types in one day.  Due to the infrequency that certain types are found, this can require significantly more planning to complete.

Specific rules can vary depending on the cacher who sets up the challenge.  Common rules include:

  • All cache types are allowed.
  • The challenge itself cannot be used to complete the challenge.
  • Benchmarks and Waymarks are not counted.
