Toronto Airport

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We have a couple hours to kill in the airport and I was wondering if there were any caches we can hit; i've spent a bit of time trying to search the postal code of the airport, but only turned up surrounding area. Are there caches in the airport, or is there a security issue?

 

Any help/comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Perhaps you could specify which Toronto area airport you plan to visit...

Here are the most common:

 

Lester B Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

Address: 3111 Convair Drive Mississauga ON L5P 1B2

 

Toronto City Centre Airport (YTZ)

Address: 60 Harbour Street Toronto ON M5J 1B7

 

Toronto Buttonville Airport (YKZ)

Address: 2833 - 16th Ave Markham ON L3R 0P8

 

All of these do have caches in the general area...

You can use their postal codes to help your search.

 

If you're coming in to Pearson (YYZ) Try and visit GCH31J - Not the Airport Hilton if you're looking to move some Travel Bugs!

 

Hope this helps...

I don't have any mapping here at work but I would guess that most, if not all, caches in the area are outside the airport property. However if you only have two hours to kill then you won't really have time anyway. Between inside terminal walking distances, security line-ups, and customs if you are going U.S. bound, two hours is easily shot.

I agree with Olar that off airport caching requires a car and a lot more time, but the one cache mentioned, NOt the Airport Hilton, does not even require a lot of walking. The inter terminal shuttle buses STOP with 300 metres of it, making it readily available to all.
