What to Expect

Join us on one of our best and favourite places to run a photo tour, The Dolomites in North East Italy. This tour will consist of 5 nights single occupancy hotel stay at Hotel Aquila (including breakfast) right in the heart of The Dolomites in the town of Cortina D’ampezzo.

There will be NO SET itinerary for this trip as I prefer to keep a close eye on weather forecasts throughout the tour to determine our destination and make sure we have the best possible weather that may suit a specific place. I have just returned from spending one week in The Dolomites and we took one day at a time as we were keeping tabs on the weather forecast and it worked a treat. We got some epic conditions including amazing sunrises and sunsets everyday.

Fitness level
This trip requires no great fitness level, although one of our locations, Tre Cime, does have a one hour hike along a mountain path to our shooting location. All other places are within easy walking distance of our bus.

Transportation

You will be transported throughout the tour in a comfortable, spacious 9 seater bus starting and finishing at Milan Bergamo airport.

Weather

The weather in The Dolomites in Autumn can be anything from mild, calm weather to cold, snowy weather, so prep is key! Warm clothes are a must here, as temperatures can drop suddenly when the sun goes down. It is also very possible we will experience some clear night skies so there is a good chance of some astrophotography in some of the worlds darkest skies whilst witnessing the Milky Way in all its glory. A hat, scarf and gloves wouldn’t be a bad idea either just to be sure. This promises to be an amazing week of photography in a truly picture perfect part of the world. We hope to see you there…
