Location

View map

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.

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.

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.
