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.
