Celebrate a year of medieval heritage with the Treasure of the Temple Knights GeoTour

Celebrating a year of adventures along Spain’s first GeoTour.

In the valleys of Saja and Nansa in western Cantabria, Spain, 148 geocaches await you on the Treasure of Temple Knights GeoTour (GT8C). In celebration of the one-year anniversary of Spain’s first GeoTour, the hosts have planned a weekend full of events. This is your opportunity to find caches in an array of terrains, from the sea to the mountains, that  make this GeoTour an unforgettable experience. Spanning an area of 1,000 square kilometers, this GeoTour was developed with the cultural and environmental heritage of the region in mind. There are even specific locations designed for kids based on mythological creatures!

What does the celebration weekend include?

The anniversary weekend is full of activities revolving around caching and outdoor exploration! Join the guided tours along the medieval route of the Templar Knights to reach some of the most complicated and hard-to-reach places of the 148 geocaching treasures.
