We’ll be meeting at Bilbao airport at the beginning of the Spain Photo Tour. During the first two days that we will spend in this area, we will visit the beautiful city of Bilbao. There we’ll photograph the incredible Guggenheim Museum.
In addition to the capital, we will visit the amazing nature around Barrika Beach, with its incredible flysch and rocky formations. Moreover, to complete the day, we will visit the beautiful forest of Gorbeia where we can photograph ancient beech trees and some waterfalls.
It is time to drive to the region of Asturias, full of wild, stunning beaches and impressive cliffs. We will capture places such as ‘El Castro de las Gaviotas’ or Gueirua Beach and El Silencio or Portizuelo Beaches. Some of the most incredible locations for landscape and seascape photography in the whole country and probably Europe.
Luarca and Cudillero have been important fishing ports throughout history and still have fresh seafood and delicious restaurants. Lots of large jagged rock formations and many variations in compositions will be on offer for other key locations like Playa de Toro, and many other hidden gems.
During the day time, we’ll be able to visit these famous villages in the region and others like Llanes, Ribadesella, Cudillero and Lastres. These villages will bring us a photography opportunity, but also enjoy the local life and food, including the delicious seafood in the area.
Picos de Europa (optional for Milky Way)
After all the seascapes, a change of pace and scenery will take us up into the mountain range. For the next day, we will be visiting the spectacular mountain of Picos de Europa National Park. And for the first time on this trip, we will photograph the sunset, of course, but also, we will do a night photography session by Covadonga Lakes. A great opportunity to capture the milky way.
It’s time to go down to the coast again, to photograph the outstanding scenery of Cantabria, where we will stay for the next two days. We will be focusing on seascapes, photographing some of the most beautiful beaches, cliffs and rock formations of this incredible coast.
We are going to visit locations during sunrise and sunset, such as Arnia Beach, La Costa Quebrada, or Los Urros. During the day, we will visit and photograph some of the villages in the region, such as Comillas, Suances, or San Vicente de la Barquera.
Today, we’ll drive back to Bilbao, where this Spain Photo Tour will come to the end. During our drive and if we have time, we will be able to stop in some other locations to make the trip more enjoyable. Do you know the series Game of Thrones? Sure, you do, just keep that in mind

Some views of our tour:
You will learn all the workflow from two professional photographer, from equipment to planning, shooting and editing single shots and panoramas like mine. We’ll have a critical session where we’ll analyze each photographer’s works and study how to improve them.
Passionate about photography since my trip to Iceland in 2017, I am captivated by nature’s beauty and the way photography allows me to connect with it. Living between Bali and Koh Lipe, I find peace in these serene locations. Although I am not a competitive photographer, I specialize in landscape and night photography, constantly striving for perfection. I now teach photography, editing, and lead tours to share my love for capturing emotions through the lens.
This experience is for lovers of Seascape and Mountainscape, it perfectly combines these two avenues of landscape fine art photography, it is incredibly diverse and the places you will see will be exclusive and very immersive, you will capture the lights typical of these extraordinary places, without compromise.
