Some views of our tour:
This experience is specifically for anyone who enjoys photographing the mountain landscape. If you are already a hiker and are looking for the best trails and views, then this is the perfect trip for you. It won’t be a strenuous experience in terms of walking but it will be a bit challenging, so pack your essentials and let’s go to explore the beauty
All hotels are included in the price, half-board meals are also included (so lunches in case we shoot the sunset, and vice versa)
We will spend a night or two at most at each location, the overnight stays will be close to the shooting spots, we will have breakfast before or after sunrise depending on the season, all nights are in a hotel in a shared double room with private bathroom
Any photographic journey is definitely not a holiday, it will be quite tiring; our hikes will not be very stressful actually, however, some physical fitness is required to face each walk with serenity…
Nothing special, each photographer will have to bring his or her own camera equipment which is recommended to be very light, clothing is classic for mountains, so several thermal Layers, from T-shirts to a down jacket for the night with shell and waterproof pants.
No particular level of experience is required, however a minimum of practice with the camera is required, Alex remains available to photographers should there be any need
The transfers and nights in the hotel, half board food and the car/vans driven by our guides (gasoline included)
