About this tour

Discover the magic of autumn on this 7-day photography workshop into the heart of Slovenia and Croatia!

During this tour, you’ll experience some of the most beautiful fall foliage across the two countries as you travel between the breathtaking Julian Alps and the extraordinary Plitvice Lake. Autumn is when the region is at its most photogenic, with the landscapes tinged in earthen hues around charming villages, forests, rivers and valleys. The unique weather conditions in this part of Europe often result in an enchanting atmosphere with layers of mist and fog creating surreal and fairytale-like moments. The serene ambience and captivating scenery is made all the more exquisite by the rich local history, culture and gastronomical delights.

For the duration of this tour, you’ll be guided by two award-winning professional photographers, who will take you to the most astonishing locations to capture the jewels of Slovenia and Croatia as you chase the golden autumn light. They’ll share their breadth of knowledge with you both in-field and out so that you can improve your photography skills and take your creativity to the next level.

This workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, you can expect to experience the very best that Slovenia and Croatia have to offer in terms of landscape photography.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive at Lake Bled

On the first day of our Slovenia photography tour, the group will meet at the airport of Ljubljana at 2 p.m. If you arrive earlier or a day before we can also meet at the lobby of our hotel at lake Bled at 2:45-3 p.m. upon check in. We don’t want to waste any time, so we will immediately head north towards one of the country’s most iconic sights, Lake Bled. The emerald lake is arguably Slovenia’s most popular tourist spot, and after a few minutes, walking around you’ll quickly understand why. The water shines with dazzling green and blue tones, a charming church rests on a tiny island in the centre, and the imposing peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke offer the perfect backdrop for photography shoots.

 

We are sure that it will be a magnificent start to our six-day adventure. In the evening we will gather together for food, spend some time getting to know each other and discuss the trip to come..

 

You'll arrive at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport in Slovenia, where you will meet with your photography guides and your fellow travellers at 2pm. If you happen to arrive a day or two early, then feel free to explore the city at your own leisure and to make your way on this day to the lobby of our hotel at Lake Bled, where you'll be able to meet the group upon check-in at around 2:45 to 3pm. Once the group has settled in, we'll make our way to the stunning Lake Bled, where picture-perfect scenes await. Here, you will find a 17th-century church seemingly adrift upon the water, making for a truly breathtaking sight. Surrounding us will be some of the highest peaks in the Julian Alps, which are iconic in their own right. We'll spend our time strolling around the lake in search of wonderful compositions to make the most of the warm afternoon light as the sun sets upon the horizon. Thereafter, we'll return to our hotel where there will be some time to freshen up, before we meet again for our welcome dinner in the evening. This will be a good opportunity for you to get to know everyone a little better as you taste some of the delicious food and wine that is on offer. Your guides will go over the itinerary for the days ahead, so it's a great time to ask any questions that you may have.

Day 2-4: Lake Bled and Julian Alps

Over the next 4 days during this photography tour, we will be exploring the Gorenjska region, including the area close to Lake Bled and the nearby Julian Alps. There will be sunrise shoots on the shores of lake Bled, a trip up to the castle that overlooks the water, and plenty of time spent shooting the spectacular church in the middle of the lake.

 

We will also spend time at one of Slovenia’s hidden gems, the Vintgar Gorge. This 1.6km trench cuts through the Hom and Bort hills, and there are is a variety of waterfalls, rivers, and rapids to capture with our cameras. We will certainly make time for some long exposure shots.

 

We will also spend some time exploring the local culture through our lenses. There are plenty of charming villages close to the lake, where we will capture traditional agricultural architecture and the famous hayracks of Slovenia. Rural village life offers a wonderful contrast to the epic natural scenes that will dominate our sunset shoots.

 

True gems of Slovenia are amazing churches! We photograph iconic Jamnik and St Tomaz churches, St John at Bohinj lake – with stunning mountains backdrop.

Day 5

Today we are enjoying our final sunrise at lake Bled – and moving forward to Plitvice lakes national park. It is a dream destination for many photographers. You can capture hundreds of cascades and waterfalls framed by autumn foliage. With turquoise waters beneath and gentle autumn light your photos will look like medieval paintings.

Day 6

We spend one full day at Plitvice NP exploring and enjoying autumn splendour.

Departure day. We will photograph our final sunrise at the park – and head to Zagreb international airport. We plan to be at the airport around 12 to 1 p.m. So please feel free to book your flights after 3 p.m.
