Photo Tour Slovenia – capture Slovenia at its most colourful

Discover Slovenia’s Julian Alps in the most beautiful season. You can leave it to us to get you to the best locations to capture autumn colours at their finest. The focus of this tour is spectacular landscape scenes as we follow nature’s colours around the unspoilt Alps, valleys, lakes and rivers of Slovenia.

You’ll explore Lake Bled and its iconic church on Bled island, starting with sunrise at the shore and ending with sunset from a stunning vantage point. You’ll also discover the more tranquil but equally inspiring Lake Bohinj in the heart of the Julian Alps. Together we’ll try creative long exposures to capture fast-flowing rivers and waterfalls at Soča river valley. We’ll visit some of Slovenia’s most picturesque villages to shoot hilltop churches, traditional hayracks and document a slower pace of life. You’ll discover the charming capital, Ljubljana, with its contrasting architecture, café culture, bustling riverbank and markets.

The one-week photo tour will be led by the Slovenian Dan Briski. The renowned landscape and outdoor photographer knows the region of the Julian Alps and Lake Bled like no other. Dan worked as a photographer for the Triglav National Park for several years.

What our clients say

Madeleine

This was my 2nd trip with Amazing Views and I enjoyed again very much. Jenny and Dan were very dedicated photo tour guides who showed us the beauties of Slovenia and always supported us to capture them with our cameras. It was a great week with nice people.

Thomas

As an auditor / organizer I have been trained for over 20 years to find problems / errors / weaknesses, and there was absolutely NOTHING to complain! Organisation and individual support were top. A special big praise to the guide Dan for the choice of the locations and the consideration of the upcoming weather conditions. When even the photo guides Dan and Jennifer unpack their lenses, it means something.
