Outdoor Photography Course in the Slovenian Alps
Grab your camera and immerse yourself in the stunning and remote Slovenian Alps. 3 days. 1 day off work.
Discover the quiet wonder of the Triglav National Park. Be inspired by its serrated peaks, roaring rivers and ancient mountain culture. Whether you're an established photographer looking for their next conquest or an amateur hoping to hone their hobby, you'll be amazed by the landscape and grow stylistically, thanks to expert guidance from a professional local photographer.
Day 1: Arrival and Travel to Bohinj
You’ll be met by your guides at Ljubljana Airport and be driven to the delightful town of Bohinj, checked in and left to your own devices until dinner. You can spend this time exploring the village, unwind in the hotel room or take a dip in the lake or grab a beer. Head back to base for a yummy dinner and get to know your hosts and fellow travellers.
(1hr 15m driving)
Day 2: Photograph Zajamniki
Wake up to the Slovenian sunrise and tuck into a tasty continental breakfast. Then it’s time to find your lenses, pack the van and head to Zajamniki. You’ll be met by a roaring fire, freshly brewed coffee and the sight of your mountain hut accommodation for the night.
After lunch, you’ll participate in a workshop centred on landscape and architectural photography. Then you’ll put your skills into action and visit the city. After an afternoon ambling around Zajamniki, you’ll stop for some dinner.
At sunset, you’ll learn all about how to capitalise on contrasts and colour and will learn extra skills like utilising lens flare. Then you can either turn in for the night or try your hand at some night photography.
Day 3: Photograph Mt Triglav
Wake up bright and early, grab your camera and photograph the orange-hued Mt. Triglav, Slovenia’s highest peak. Then it’s back to the hut for breakfast and some free time, before packing your bags and driving to Bohinj.
But it’s not over yet; once there, you’ll have lunch and even get a chance to try Slovenian delicacies like Carniolan sausages and Žlikrofi (dumplings), before finishing off with a slice of Gibanica cake. If you’re lucky, you may be able to sneak in some time at the sauna (entry fee not included) before leaving for the airport.
All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
On your first night, you'll stay in a cosy 3-star hotel or apartment in the centre of Bohinj. You'll stay in double rooms, but double and single rooms are available on request.
Your second night will be spent experiencing traditional Slovenian mountain culture. You'll stay in a typical mountain hut; built using the area's long-utilised methods, the huts are comfortable and contain single beds. You'll reconnect with nature and get an opportunity to detox digitally, as there is no hot water or electricity in the huts.
While Slovenia shares a land border with Italy and boasts many of the same features - beautiful sea and mountainscapes, an enviable climate and a rich culture - it comes with none of the crowds. More than 60% of this small European country is covered by forests and mountains, making it an unmissable destination for travellers longing to detach from the chaos of the city and reconnect with Mother Nature.
You'll escape off into the Northwest's famous Triglav National Park; known for its emerald green peaks, cascading waterfalls and dense, pine forests, it's secreted away from the tourist trail and defined by its photogenic panoramas. The park is home to vibrant ecosystems, gorgeous glacial lakes like Bohinj, the beautiful forest of Pokljuka and a range of mountain villages.
