PTTK Quests – Explorer Expeditions Badge
If completing a Quest in the app, the Quest will be added to your User Account automatically.
The national PTTK Quests – Explorer Expeditions Badge was introduced pursuant to a co-operation memorandum entered into with the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society (PTTK) in November 2019. Any tourist with a User Account registered on the www.questy.org.pl website who has met all requirements listed in the respective Rules and Regulations shall have the right to apply for a Badge.
HOW DO I EARN A BADGE?
To earn your right to a Badge, you will need to complete a specific number of Quests within a given area – by using a Quest Card or mobile smartphone app in the field, or completing a virtual Quest. Completing a Quest means that the player has travelled the full length of the Quest route in the field (with a Quest Card or Quests – Explorer Expeditions mobile app); used the commemorative seal to stamp the Quest Card, Explorer’s Passport, or another paper item; and made a respective entry, including the completion date and User name, in the Quest Ledger to confirm that the “Treasure” (end-of-trail Box) has been found.
Should the “Treasure” (end-of-trail Box) or its contents be missing, the player shall document his/her presence on the Quest route by taking a “selfie” at the final location (facial images are not required). In order to verify a player’s actual presence on a Quest route, the Quests – Explorer Expeditions team may request that he/she provide an image of the seal imprint, and/or photographs from the Quest route. Exceptions to the above shall include completing Quests marked as “virtual”, and Quests completed with the use of the mobile app.
Add completed Quests to your results
Any user who has completed a Quest in the field using a Quest Card, or a virtual Quest (by reaching and discovering the final answer), can add said Quest to his/her User Account. To find out how to add Quests to your User Account, go to the MANUAL.

Once you have completed enough Quests to qualify for a given Badge, a SHOW CODE button will be displayed in a window on the right-hand side of your User Account screen.
