What to Expect

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. We will shoot sunrise and sunset on all days while in Slovenia. Locations are all quite close so luckily we wont have to spend hours in the bus from place to place. As sunrise is around 7.30am this time of the year we will be able to shoot sunrise and come back for breakfast at the airbnb or guesthouse, have a few hours break to chill, then heading out for the remainder of the day from aboit midday until sunset, which is at 6pm. We are ideally located to shoot the absolute best of what Slovenia has to offer with amazing hill top churches, spectacular gorges and amazing mountains and waterfalls. Food and drink is NOT very expensive in Slovenia but the quality of it is amazing. This promises to be a tour not to be missed…

We will base ourselves close to Lake Bled. in either a guesthouse or an airbnb. Regardless of which accommodation is booked, each place booked will be single occupancy.

I will arrive to Ljubljana Airport at 11.15am on the 11th of October. Please be in Ljubljana Airport no later than 12 midday. We will arrive back to the airport at 10.30am on October 15th

This workshop is limited to just 4 places

Please Note: Should Covid 19 prevent this workshop from going ahead, we will either reschedule or you will be issued with an online voucher for the full amount paid, including the deposit to be used on any future workshop with Bernard Geraghty Landscape Tours. The voicher will have no expiry date.

Weather

The weather in Slovenia can be anything from mild, calm weather to cold, snowy weather, so prep is key, although in October it can be quite pleasant with highs of 16/17 degrees C. Warm clothes are a must here, as temperatures can drop suddenly when the sun goes down. 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 such an stunning part of the world. We hope to see you there.
