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 6.40am this time of the year we will be able to shoot sunrise and come back for breakfast at the 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 7.30pm. 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, given we have breakfast included makes it even better. This promises to be a tour not to be missed…

We will base oursleves at the beautiful and brilliantly located Mlino guest house, only 20 metres from the shore of Lake Bled. Each person will have their own room which is comfy, warm and spacious, the room also comes with a private en suite with towels and shower gel/shampoo included. Breakfast is also included with a wide range of food from, continental, eggs & bacon to cereal and juices.

I will arrive to Ljubljana Airport at 12.45pm on the 30th of March. Please be in Ljubljana Airport no later than 2pm. We will arrive back to the airport at 5am on April 5th.

Note: I have already stayed in this accommodation so I am basing the trip here on my own experience

Weather

The weather in Slovenia can be anything from mild, calm weather to cold, snowy weather, so prep is key, although in April 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.
