The Complete French Alps Tour
Ready to experience the Alps like you've never experienced them before? Come along as we do six hikes in seven days along some of the most beautiful Alpine terrain you will ever see. We'll hike deep into the Aravis, into the Trois Vallees ski area and Tignes, Bonneval-sur-Arc, Jarjatte Vallee, and Chichilliane. Want to see the most beautiful hidden section of the Alps? This is the place to be.
Learn from a passionate professional
Our photographers are both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and the area. We take you to all the good spots and let you enjoy the journey along the way. We capture as many sunrises and sunsets as weather and the small group will allow, and after shooting, we return to the hotel for a couple post-editing tutorials.
Group size & Options
Not everyone runs at the same pace, and our tours are built to accommodate everyone. We keep group sizes small, so everyone will have some one on one time with the pro. We also will offer different options for everyone. Perhaps someone wants to work on astrophotography late at night, maybe someone else really wants sunrises. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you don't feel like you have to do everything, but you can still get as most out of the experience as you want.

We head to the Vallon de la Jarjatte, some of the most striking peaks in the entire Alpine region. It's remote location ensures tranquility and a magnificient experience in the mountains. We are also very likely to see Chamois here.
