Approximately - Loading...

The traffic-free village of Wengen in the Swiss Alps is our base to explore one of Europe’s most picturesque landscapes. This late June trip is timed to coincide with the sight of carpets of colourful wildflowers. This is a trip that explores alpine life, from birds to butterflies, but that focuses on the flower-filled landscapes and mountains, with the mighty peaks of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau the backdrop to the alpine meadows.  We will hope to photograph many species of alpine flowers including orchids, violets and gentians.  As well as the flowers we come across during our gentle walks, we will take photographs in the world famous Alpine Botanic Garden at Schynige Platte, home to 600 local plant species.  There will be no road journeys, as the trip will explore the meadows and spruce forests of the Bernese Oberland on foot or by train and cable car.

Alongside the colourful wildflowers on offer, the tour will also offer the opportunity to photograph the incredible landscapes. Of course landscapes are Charlie's speciality and he will be on hand to guide you to the best places and 'see' the landscapes through your lens.

The traffic-free village of Wengen in the Swiss Alps is our base to explore one of Europe’s most picturesque landscapes. This late June trip is timed to coincide with the sight of carpets of colourful wildflowers. This is a trip that explores alpine life, from birds to butterflies, but that focuses on the flower-filled landscapes and mountains, with the mighty peaks of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau the backdrop to the alpine meadows.  We will hope to photograph many species of alpine flowers including orchids, violets and gentians.  As well as the flowers we come across during our gentle walks, we will take photographs in the world famous Alpine Botanic Garden at Schynige Platte, home to 600 local plant species.  There will be no road journeys, as the trip will explore the meadows and spruce forests of the Bernese Oberland on foot or by train and cable car.

Alongside the colourful wildflowers on offer, the tour will also offer the opportunity to photograph the incredible landscapes. Of course landscapes are Charlie's speciality and he will be on hand to assist those photographers who enjoy photographing the big mountain landscape. His particular passion is establishing relationships within a large landscape setting often found to be too overwhelming for some photographers. Charlie enjoys ‘reading the landscape’ and along with Sue will help unravel the process of seeing this thrilling mountain landscape.

This tour is a last minute addition to our 2018 tours calender and is a rare chance to travel with Charlie and Sue, the founders of Light and Land. The price reflects the exclusivity of this tour, which is also limited to seven participants. 

Each participant will also receive all these extra benefits:

A signed copy of Charlie’s book “Arc and Line”

A signed copy of Sue’s book “Colour Light & Composition”

An A3 boxed print of one of Charlie’s images

An A3 boxed print of one of Sue’s images

A post tour critique session by skype with Charlie or Sue

This tour really is totally unique!

Sue and Charlie will arrive in Wengen a few days before the tour for a final recce of the best flower locations, and will then decide on the day to day itinerary according to the weather conditions.
