Trekking Photo Tour
21st-25th September 2017
Join Vagabond Trails and myself on a landscape photography and hiking tour in Val de Bagnes, Switzerland. This is a great opportunity to explore the Pennine Alps and photograph beautiful and wild alpine landscapes.
The trek follows the Tour Val de Bagnes, an iconic hike with majestic mountains like the Grand Combin, Vélan and Mont Blanc in the background. The focus of this tour is to enjoy both hiking and landscape photography – two activities that goes beautifully well together, creates memories for life, and brings together likeminded people.
We will be trekking by day and shooting in the evenings and mornings. Our accommodation will be different each night as we hike from one mountain hut to the next. Each hut will provide evening meals, breakfast and a packed lunch. There is also the option to purchase beer and wine, which will be much deserved after a long and rewarding hike. The sleeping arrangements in these mountain huts are dormitory style.
The lodgings are situated in incredibly scenic locations, making photography an absolute pleasure with amazing compositions only a stones throw from the warm shelter of the mountain hut. We will have the opportunity to photograph a semi-pro trail runner on location, making for some excellent mountain sports action photography.
This tour does not venture above 2900 meters in altitude, therefore there is no technical skill needed to enjoy this trek. We will be enduring long days of hiking and although we will be taking it nice and easy, we will still be covering distances of up to 17 kilometres in a day and we will all be responsible for carrying our own photography gear, drinking water and other items needed to be safe in the mountains. A good level of fitness is essential for this tour.
This tour has sold out, however there will be more Alps Trekking tours in 2018.
