The Swiss Lakes
One of our longest tours, the full journey isn't for the faint of heart with hikes to Trift, Oeschinen, and Caumasee, but for those who are up to it, this tour yields awe-inspiring treasures. That being said, because of the length and distance, it can be better to jump in and enjoy a segment or two at Lake Como and Valle Verzasca or Trift and Oeschinen.
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.

Oct 18-23, 2017
The first day we pick you up at the airport or train station in Milan and head north to beautiful lake Como. You can drop off your bags and relax and walk around the town, and we'll head out for pictures at sunset.
The next day we head north past Luganot to Locarno, and Valle Verzasca, one of the most beautiful hidden treasures in all of Switzerland. This idyllic valley is crossed by an old stone bridge and is a true site to behold.
The third day we head east to Caumasee, one of the real gems of the Eastern side of Switzerland. Here you're in the heart of German Switzerland.
We head back west to Interlaken, where we'll relax a little by the lake and then head into the mountains to Trift Glacier and lake, and walk across the huge suspension bridge over the lake. An experience you won't soon forget.
We head to Kandersteg to begin the short hike to the last and what the Swiss Germans call the most beautiful lake in the Alps - Oeschinen. The final day is spent in this beautiful area enjoying the crystal clear blue glacial waters.
We check out of our hotels and drop you off at the Interlaken train station with a ticket to Geneva, Zurich, or Lugano and say goodbye.
All of the hikes on the journey are relatively easy walks, with well groomed trails, hikes under 4 miles, and elevation gains of less than 1,000 ft at a time. Our guides are also aspirant mountain guides in the Alps (it's a thing) and can help pack photography materials when needed, but please let us know beforehand if you there is anything we should be aware of like a heart condition, etc.
You will arrive in Italy in Milan. We will pick you up and take you to the hotel surrounding Lake Como
After checkout from the hotel in Interlaken, we'll take you to the train station and give you a ticket to either Geneva, Lugano, or Zurich.
We will stay at three and four star hotels in Como, Locarno, Caumasee, and Interlaken.
Meals will be provided for you and will consist of breakfast lunch and dinner. If you have any health concerns or diet restrictions please let us know beforehand, so we can accommodate you the best that we can.
