Itinerary

 

We’ll pick you up at the airport. Our photo tour starts with an amazing sunset over a typical Swiss village in the countryside of Unterschächen – Klaunsenpass. It is a dream! With flowered houses and a beautiful waterfall in the background. This location is almost a secret, a treasure known by few and outside the traditional tourist itineraries. Then, we have our photography workshop and the delivery of the Professional Landscape Photographer Certificate.

 

Sunrise on the incredible Steinsee lake with emerald waters, vegetation in orange, yellow and red tones, besides the beautiful mountains around. Afterwards, we visit a beautiful waterfall in Meiringen, one of our secret locations, known by few and off the beaten path by tourist guides. The sunset is over the beautiful alpine lake of Bachalpsee, surrounded by green meadows.

 

Amazing sunrise over the picturesque village of Lauterbrunnen, with a beautiful composition of waterfalls falling around the town. We’re going by train to Wengwald to photograph more “secret” locations. We visit exclusive locations in Moenchblick and Wengen, where we will have compositions of small peasant houses with a top-down view of the village of Lauterbrunnen. Sunset is in Lauterbrunnen, in a restaurant, for the record of an iconic composition.

 

Sunrise at the Blausee National Park, with numerous compositions for the emerald Lake Blausee. Train ride to Zermatt, where we will contemplate the beauties of a trip with fabulous landscapes. Sunset to contemplate the iconic mount Matterhorn, seen from the alpine town of Zermatt. The next day, the sunrise is over Lake Reffelsee, with composition for the magnificent Matterhorn. New sunset in Gornegrat, over the beautiful golden autumn forests, in orange tones.

 

Sunrise over the iconic Goms Bridges – Bellwald and sunset over the picturesque Gletsch Chapel. Other daytime locations will be chosen depending on weather conditions. The next day, we do night photography and long exposure at the iconic Hotel Belvédère, in addition to enjoying a sunset overlooking the green meadows of Furkapass.

 

Sunrise with a visit to Valle Verzasca, which has transparent emerald waters. We enjoy the day with several locations in the village of Lavertezzo. Sunset is over the beautiful Ponte Dei Salti. The next morning, sunrise is over the Chiesa di Santa Maria Degli Angeli.

 

This is departure day. Farewell to the group and to the new friends. We will transfer everyone to the airport. Each one will take with them the unforgettable memories and the new friendships made. We are sure that soon the group of friends will meet again on our other 4 photo tours: Patagonia, Northern Lights in Iceland, New Zealand and Italy.
