It is no coincidence that “Slovenia” has L-O-V-E in its name, because you will fall in love with Slovenia too once you explore the storybook landscapes of pristine wilderness often referred to as “the sunny side of the Alps”. The focus of this tour is to capture this stunning landscape when the autumn colours are at its finest
Surrounded by Austria, Hungary, Italy and Croatia plus a stunning but short stretch of the Adriatic coast, Slovenia is best described as small corner of Europe, that brings together a picturesque blend of Alpine, Mediterranean, Karst and Pannonian worlds. As we photograph our way around Slovenia we come across spectacular lakes, majestic mountains, roaring waterfalls, alpine meadows and picture perfect villages, topped by fairytale castles overlooking this ridiculously pretty landscape.
Our tour first takes us to Lake Bled and its iconic Church of the Assumption on Bled Island, arguably the most photographed location in the whole country. With a backdrop of Julian Alps, we can indulge ourselves in creative compositions to photograph Lake Bohinj and the dainty Church of St. John. We shoot long exposures to smooth out the fast flowing waters of Soca river and waterfalls Vintar Gorge. Finally, we visit the historic capital Ljubljana (Lub-l-ana). From Roman ruins to baroque palaces, the walking only town center has many pretty compositions with the famous pink Church and the hilltop Ljublana castle overlooking the capital city. From Ljublana we include a day trip to the famous Postjana Caves and the Postjana castle cut out of a mountain.
