Munich to Salzburg Walking & Hiking Tour
The hills are alive with the sound of music, indeed. Hiking through the Bavarian Alps throws you into the impossibly beautiful set of the classic movie, the Sound of Music. Breathe in the fresh air and snap some close-ups of the wildflower-lined trails or the crystal-blue lakes with Germany’s Alps as the backdrop. And get prepared for a shot of the most iconic castle in all of Europe!
Myanmar Bike Tour
The Burmese people have only recently come in contact with the outside world and their story is a fascinating one. Ask for permission and these warm-hearted people will let you photograph their genuine smiles that push through any language barrier. And he architecture of the pagodas and temples stretching across the horizon are a site to behold and make for incredible photo opportunities – especially from a hot air balloon!
Canadian Rockies Bike Tour
This awe-inspiring mountain range will take your breath away in more ways than one. Take a moment to snap a photo of wandering mountain goats, snow-capped peaks or the iconic turquoise lakes found in this alpine paradise. The land here is so rich in resources and minerals that emerald, jade, sapphire and indigo colors fill the lakes and rivers and your camera’s lens. It’s truly a photographer’s paradise out here.
Norway Walking & Hiking Tour
With over 20 hours of daylight in the summer, there’s no shortage of photo opportunities in Norway. The famous fjords are one of the most photogenic landscapes in the world, but you may just find yourself spending extra time behind the lens to perfectly capture the vibrant blues of the glaciers or the twinkling lights from the waterside villages. Point your camera in any direction and you’ll capture something worthwhile.
Cinque Terre Walking & Hiking Tour
Quite possibly the most photogenic series of villages on the entire Mediterranean, Italy’s Cinque Terre, or “five towns,” are almost overwhelming for a photographer. Whether you’re taking photos from the vineyard-lined trails above, of the fishermen’s boats bobbing in the harbors, or of the pastel-colored houses jumbled together on the cliffs, this is one place where you can’t snap the photos fast enough.
Yosemite Walking & Hiking Tour
One of the three “Crown Jewels” of the National Parks, Yosemite. It’s the place that made Ansel Adams famous, the home of the iconic granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome, as well as some of the tallest waterfalls in America. And did we mention the towering Sequoia Trees, standing 300 feet tall?
Peru Walking & Hiking Tour
Peru is a living rainbow. The combination of llamas, indigenous ruins (Machu Pichu anyone?), glaciers, mountains and traditionally dressed locals create a dynamic opportunity for photographers. The light is consistent and the colors are vibrant. The people are just as bright with their friendly demeanor - and they love having their pictures taken.
Yes, the buffalo roam here, but just don’t get too close! This incredible trip doubles up the photographic opportunities by visiting two of the most iconic and photogenic national parks in the West. Snap pictures of bison, elk, bald eagles and bears with backdrops of uniquely beautiful geology. Capture the bright patches of orange, red, pink and white coloring in the cliffs that line the “Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone,” as well as the iconic western landscapes that fill the horizon beside the jagged Tetons.
Croatia & Montenegro Multi-Adventure Tour
As if Croatia’s amazing island-spotted Dalmatian Coast wasn’t enough, with its crystal-clear water and sandy beach coves, it also happens to be lined with medieval villages, stone forts and towers that offer a traveling photographer endless subjects to fill their lens, all the way to Montenegro’s stunning Bay of Kotor. What’s more, Croatian food and drink play a big part of the local culture, and there’s no shortage of fresh seafood, farm-fresh veggies, wines and olive oils to photograph and make any foodie’s mouth water.
Bryce, Zion & Grand Canyon Multi-Adventure
Follow your lens through three different national parks and you may never again be able to top this epic photographer’s journey. Astounding rock formations, river-carved canyons, sheer cliffs and curious hoodoos are photographed with ease in the gorgeous light of sunrise, sunset and everything in between. There’s no other landscape in the world that comes close to capturing the unique magic of this red rock world of the Southwest.
