Walking Holidays in Slovenia

As a photographer I can tell you that the best way to explore a landscape and photograph it is to travel slowly. This way you can be alert for the many photographic opportunities that present themselves when you least expect it. Slovenia is small, so walking is the best way to get around, as it will take you slowly through the landscape so you can take your time to look for photographic opportunities, and stop wherever you want to take a photo. For this reason I have selected the Helia Tourist Agency in Bled, who offer a superb range of walking holidays in Slovenia. By walking you can get off the beaten track and be ready at a moment's notice to take your shot. I especially recommend these walking holidays because they will take you through the heart of the Slovenian alpine region, along trails that a car cannot go. And, walking is good for you and for the environment.

The Helia tours are mostly self-guided. This means that the holidaymakers walk on their own, without a tour guide. Helia make all the necessary hotel reservations and organize luggage transport between your hotels. All you need to do is pack your camera equipment and lunch and off you go. During the welcome meeting on the day of arrival guests get a detailed tour description with complementary maps. All tours offer shared accommodation, where you will be paired up with another guest of the same sex, or you can choose to pay a supplement for a single room.

There are some advantages to a self-guided tour:

  • You can choose to leave whenever you want (subject to accommodation availability)
  • You can walk at your own pace and stop where you want to take photos without being rushed on by a strict itinerary
  • You can start and finish each day at a time that suits you (ideal for photography as you will want to be out for the sunrise and sunset

You can buy a holiday with or without a workshop, or even for the family and just book one family member on the workshop.
