DAY 2 to 4 – Lake Bled and Julian Alps

We’ll have three full days to explore the beautiful Gorenjska region starting with a sunrise shoot at the shore of Lake Bled. From Bled Castle perched up on the clifftop, we’ll capture superb panoramas of the lake with its island and Baroque church. We will visit the spectacular Vintgar Gorge—the perfect location to experiment with capturing fast-flowing water and try out some long exposures. Our second glacial lake is Bohinj that has a very different feel. Here we’ll take time to hone our composition skills at the lakeshore and capture creative reflections. A short drive takes us to the surrounding picturesque villages where you’ll have the opportunity to capture traditional agricultural architecture, including the landmark hayracks of Slovenia, as well as scenes of rural village life. We will cap off the evenings with a lakeside sunset shoot.

DAY 5 and 6 – Soča River Valley and Triglav National Park

We travel down to the Soča River Valley to explore more of the Triglav National Park. Once there, we will capture the incredible emerald waters of the Soča, and discover gorges and waterfalls as we hike along the riverbanks. In addition to capturing stunning landscapes, we may be lucky with some wildlife photography and will also take the opportunity to photograph the historical World War I remnants along the trail. Our route will take us on an exciting tour of some of the highest mountains in Slovenia, offering incredible views across the country and into Italy.

DAY 7 – Ljubljana

We leave the Alps and head to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and a gem of a city. We’ll wander the charming streets of the old city, camera in hand, and capture the highlights of Ljubljana including baroque churches, diverse architectural details, and the castle. We will also try our hand at some street photography and candid portraits in Ljubljana’s bustling marketplace and along the café-strewn riverbanks.
