[dropcap]L[/dropcap]et us show you the masterpiece that is Bohinj. From a prehistoric glacial lake to the pride and joy of all Slovenes – Mt Triglav, you will capture images of a lifetime.
We will take you to lookout points, secret waterfalls and ancient gorges that not even the locals know their whereabouts. We will show you all the classic techniques in an unhurried way of learning.
Marvel at the unique Slovenian icon – the double hayrack, with Mt Studor as a powerful backdrop. Shoot it from angles that has taken us years to perfect.
In the evenings we dine in family run restaurants with real home cooking. Put your cameras down for an hour or so and enjoy genuine Slovene hospitality.
Stay in a welcoming home that is ideal to discuss and share photography ideas at the end of the day. Wake up recharged to splendid views of the Bohinj mountain range from the balcony, ready for your next adventure.
