Slovenia has some of the most breathtaking views of the Alps region with untouched natural lakes, mountains and rivers. During winter these landscapes change dramatically, making Slovenia a winter wonderland.
The main focus of this photography workshop is Lake Bled and the picturesque Triglav National Park. Lake Bled is one of the most photogenic places in Europe and an ideal first location. Lake Bled during winter is something straight from a fairy tale with the 15th Century old church on Slovenia’s only natural island and a backdrop of 2000m+ tall mountains covered in a white sprinkle.
The Triglav National Park in Slovenia hosts many hidden wonders to explore. Shooting sunrise at one of almost 3000 churches in Slovenia, photographing waterfalls during the day or photographing a frozen alpine lake at sunset – the ultimate photographer's dream.
This tour will consist of great locations, memories, good food and beautiful photography. We cater for everyone’s photography needs, whether you are at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level, there is something for everyone.
Weather and what is needed
January is one of the coldest months in Slovenia. We can expect snow in the valleys as well as frozen lakes and waterfalls if the weather conditions have been cold enough.
You will need warm clothes, underlays (thermals), hat, gloves and over ankle hiking boots. Sometimes we will drive to a higher altitude in the national park, where multiple layers work much better than a heavy winter jacket. Light to moderate walking is to be expected during this workshop – shoe crampons or shoe chains are recommended (can be purchased in Slovenia).
