J'ai passé un très agréable moment à visiter et à prendre en photo le centre de Nerja sous l'oeil avisé d'un... photographe professionnel, j'ai nommé Jeroen. J'ai pu voir la ville autrement, et j'ai pu même découvrir une magnifique vue sur la plage de Burriana que je ne connaissais pas et qui vaut vraiment le déplacement. Cette visite est vraiment à recommander à tout le more

A very relaxing way to capture the town of Nerja. You are encouraged to think out of the box and take different images.... Well worth the more

I can absolutely recommend "Not a Treasure Hunt". We got to know Nerja from a different side and we took time for... details that we had previously rushed past. It's a creative challenge. The concept is great, very inviting. You notice that a lot of effort is put into making this tour a great experience. It' s beautiful presented and well put together. And you can do it even without a special camera or special photography knowledge. Thank you. We loved more

Spanje, vakantie, wandelen, foto's maken. Yeah!Echt een aanrader voor wie in de buurt van Nerja in het zuiden van... Spanje is.Je krijgt een set 'opdrachten' opgestuurd met een kaart en routebeschrijving en dan kun je op eigen tempo op pad. Je hoeft echt geen superfotograaf met dure apparatuur te zijn, gewoon met je smartphone gaat ook prima. Je wordt uitgedaagd om eens anders naar dingen te kijken en zo andere foto's te maken.Bijkomend voordeel is dat je de stad leert kennen als je, zoals wij, er nog niet eerder geweest more

You can take photos like these too!

All of our photo hunts are created by professional photographers with great admiration for the Andalusian cities. Their tips and ideas will inspire you to create city photos like you’ve never done before!

You do not need to be a photographer or own a professional camera, this is for everybody! Just take out your phone or camera and let us teach you how to take creative and more interesting photos.

The Experience

Not A Treasure Hunt is all about fun and creativity. We challenge you to capture the city in a different way (Look up!! Go closer! Yes…even closer!!).

Our self-guided walk is a package that you order online. This contains a map of Málaga with a route, an information booklet and photo challenge cards. You can do this walk without a guide and whenever you want. Take your time, follow the instructions and try a few variations or ideas of your own as well. You will notice how quickly you can achieve a surprising result!

Take a break for coffee or a bite whenever you feel like it. One package can be used by up to 5 people, so this is ideal for couples, families or small groups of friends. So if you are a larger group of, we advice you to order multiple packages. That way everyone can participate in the experience of looking at the map and reading the photo challenges!

We can send the self-guided tour package to your home address (it’s small and light so easily fits in your suitcase!) or you can pick it up at one of our pickup locations.

We regularly organise guided walks as well. During these walks a photographer will join the participants and show you in a fun way how to create different kinds of photos in a city.

For larger groups, company trips or incentives we organise customised walks. These will always be about fun, creativity and photography. On top of that, here we can add specific wishes, themes or locations.


A detailed map with directions will guide you through the city.


Learn how to look at objects and buildings in a more creative way.


Our photography challenges will make you take original photos from different perspectives.


Select your best photos and share them on social media. Use #notatreasurehunt so we can see your results!

About us

We are Kassandra and Jeroen, a Dutch couple living in Andalusia since 2014. We moved to a small village on the coast, about 45 minutes from Malaga and 10 minutes from Nerja. We love the surroundings, the people and the way of life in this part of the world.

Jeroen has over 25 years of experience as a filmmaker and photographer and has organised many workshops and courses. Kassandra has been working in the travel industry and Not A Treasure Hunt combines the best of both worlds. Many of our experiences and interests are combined in this project.

With our photo walks our mission is to show participants they can take much more interesting photos than the ‘standard’ tourist photos. And while doing so, they can have fun and feel creative. Or as our tagline says…’enjoy the city through creativity’!
