Tour Dates 24th May - 4th June 2019
The Spring Tour takes in the highlights and introduces you to the many facets of Bulgaria. This pared-down, 8 day tour is designed for photographers with diverse interests and not a lot of time. From bizarre rock formations and deep gorges to dancing waterfalls and ancient Thracian historical sites; sleepy villages, bustling markets, a mountain train ride, stunning mountain panoramas and fields of roses…perhaps even a little wine tasting.
It will be a breath-taking, wild ride!
The tour is designed for the beginner and experienced photographer alike. You will need to have a DSLR camera (you don’t need to be an expert with it), a tripod, and laptop with Photoshop or Lightroom software. You will be taught by our multi-talented photographers offering their expert tuition to ensure you come away from the two weeks with images you can’t believe are your own and, even better, with the knowledge to ensure you continue taking great photos.
Evo Danchev is an award winning photographer and photographer for National Geographic, Bulgaria.
Phil Sheil is a professor of art and design at the American University of Sharjah.
Between the two of them you will receive a very in-depth, well-rounded perspective of the art of photography and the intricacies of editing your images for maximum impact.
How Much: 1900euro (all inclusive)
The tour is all-inclusive meaning all meals, accommodation, tuition, excursions and travel within Bulgaria are included in the fee. You will only be required to arrange and pay for your flight to the country, any required visa and spending money and snacks while on the tour.
You will not believe how well you will eat on this tour! The food is fresh, it is wholesome and tasty and quite simply wonderful! Sadly, a tomato will never taste as flavourful again, or a pepper as sweet when you return home. Then there are the hearty pots of sizzling meats, the cheese and more cheese in every dish—even the French fries–and the fresh baked flat breads. And of course the home-grown wines to accompany the meals and the famous, home-brewed Brandy, known as Rakia, to finish everything off.
You will travel from one charming guesthouse to another to allow you the closest proximity to prime sunrise and sunset locations. Some accommodations offer greater charm and more amenities than others, but in all cases they are clean and well-kept with private shower facilities and free wi-fi. The high mountain huts are more primitive in their facilities, but do offer immediate access to stunning panoramas on your doorstep. So clean, comfortable and strategically located pretty much sums it up.
