Approximately - Loading...

This is Light and Land’s fifth Slovenia photography tour and the trip will be led by Benjamin Graham. Slovenia is a beautiful and unspoilt country lying at the heart of Europe where the majestic Alps meet the Mediterranean Sea. Bordered by Austria to the north, Hungary to the east, Croatia to the south and Italy to the west, this tiny country is approximately half the size of Switzerland and is home to some of the most photogenic scenery to be found anywhere in Europe.

Largely mountainous, more than half the country is thickly forested, with a wealth of architectural and natural wonders to attract our attention. For this Slovenia photography tour we will be based just 34 miles to the north-west of the capital Ljubijana and only 22 miles from the international airport in the Julian Alps, where the landscape is wild and beautiful. The area is dominated by the precipitous peak of Mt. Triglav, the highest point in the country at over 9,000 feet. Mount Triglav is a cultural icon for Slovenes which features on the national flag and lends its name to Slovenia’s only National Park, a productive centre for our photographic exploration.

Slovenia Photography Tour - Slovenia Landscape Photography

The beautiful and unspoilt country of Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the majestic Alps meet the Mediterranean Sea. Bordered by Austria to the north, Hungary to the east, Croatia to the south and Italy to the west, this tiny country is approximately half the size of Switzerland and is home to some of the most photogenic scenery to be found anywhere in Europe.

Largely mountainous, more than half the country is thickly forested, with a wealth of architectural and natural wonders to attract our attention. For this Slovenia photography tour we will be based just 34 miles to the north-west of the capital Ljubijana and only 22 miles from the international airport in the Julian Alps, where the landscape is wild and beautiful. The area is dominated by the precipitous peak of Mt. Triglav, the highest point in the country at over 9,000 feet. Mount Triglav is a cultural icon for Slovenes which features on the national flag and lends its name to Slovenia’s only National Park, a productive centre for our photographic exploration.

Our hotel is close to the centre of the mountain village of Bled within a stone’s throw of the picturesque Lake Bled in the heart of the Julian Alps. In the centre of the emerald green lake, on Slovenia’s only island, lies an iconic 15th century church. Overlooked by its lofty neighbour Bled Castle, the “Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary” with its 170 foot tower simply begs to be photographed. Bled is recognised as the gateway to the best the area has to offer, with mountains, castles, churches and beautiful landscapes just a short drive from our hotel.

Slovenia covers just 20,000 square kilometres, yet it boasts over 10,000 kilometres of sign-posted hiking trails and over a third of the countryside is protected, which allows us uninhibited access to the best Alpine scenery of majestic mountains and lakes without the need for long drives. We will dedicate the daylight hours to exploring the very best that this little known country has to offer, at all times making the most of the prevailing weather conditions and time of day.

This is Light and Land’s fifth photography tour to this prosperous and exciting country, and Benjamin is excited to be visiting Slovenia while it is still relatively unknown. He would love you to join him on this photographic adventure where clichés aren’t a concern and an eclectic mix of exciting image making possibilities await your attention.

Two great tutors in Sue and Ben. It can be useful getting advice from two tutors even if they have diametrically opposed viewpoints on frequent occasions! Locations were great and in the main had been well-reconnoitred. Good accommodation and hospitality. Only criticism was that of the three full days, one was poorly balanced - was way too much driving time for the limited, and hurried shooting time. Strangely, we spent two hours getting to somewhere that had taken 15 minutes the day before?! Sue was attentive, helpful and delightful company.

Excellent organisation. It was clear that a lot of preparation had gone into planning the tour. The hotel was lovely. The leaders were highly skilled and knowledgeable, approachable and extremely helpful. Great locations for photography were chosen.

Good fun. Very informative. Lots of effort made by organizers to ensure smooth running of trip

For tours outside of the UK, we will select a recommended flight which will depart from a London airport to the destination. In most cases (unless stated otherwise), the tour leaders will greet you at the destination airport from this flight and return you to the airport at the end of the tour.

Please DO NOT book your flights until advised to do so by the office. Tours have to become viable before we select the recommended flight.

Once a tour has enough bookings to make it viable, you will receive an email to alert you that the recommended flights have been uploaded to your client area on the website.

You are welcome to make alternative travel arrangements. If doing so, please ensure you are at the destination airport for the arrival time of the recommended flight to ensure you can take the transfer to the hotel. Alternatively you can arrange your own transfers and meet the group at the hotel on the first night.
