Unforgettable Sceneries

Being a bunch of adventurers, we are eager to discover the undiscovered locations, and find new vantage points of famous sights for you.

Landscape Photography Masterclass

As a tour participant, you will get exclusive access to our Premium Landscape Photography Masterclass channel.

Krizovy Vrch

For our after dinner mint, we will be taking in a beautiful 360° view of the landscape lying at the foot of Krizovy Vrch - a treeless hill standing in the middle of Bohemian Switzerland. There’s no such reward as having a sunset photoshoot for a dessert.

Zirkelstein

We’ll rise and shine to a dramatic view of the Kamenice River Valley, cliffs of Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland and Lusatian Mountains silently patrolling the landscape around only to be had from Zirkelstein, a small table mountain in Saxon Switzerland.

Bastei

Sunrise, sunrise… looks like morning in your lens... through which you will be capturing this awesome landmark. Towering 194 metres above the Elbe River, the jagged rock formation of Bastei is one of the most prominent lookout points of Saxon Switzerland that will treat you to an incredibly sweeping view of its surroundings.

Gorges of River Kamenice

During the day we’ll go on a field trip of the River Kamenice. Gorging on the views, we’ll be capturing the flow of its waters that run deep below the sandstone cliffs of Bohemian Switzerland.

Schrammsteine

The sunset will belong to another jagged rock formation towering high above the Elbe River in Saxon Switzerland - this time, the chain on rocks provides what are probably the most stunning views in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

Vileminina Stena

We’ll be catching the sunrise from this formation; a great vantage point offering one of the most breathtaking vistas of the village of Jetrichovice and the landmark of Ruzovsky hill (Rosy hill) in the background. Wilhelmina’s cliff is simply an each way bet and place fit for saying our last goodbyes to Bohemian Switzerland.

I had a good time and it’s interesting to get to know the people behind the shots. The guidance was excellent and Martin gave helpful hints about when and how to shoot each location we visited.

Any Questions First?

Digital camera (i.e. DSLR or mirrorless camera) with wide angle lenses and telephoto lenses - you will need at least 200mm focal length, anything “longer” than that will give you more options and flexibility on the visited locations. Sturdy and stable tripod is a MUST and a remote shutter release for tack sharp pictures. Neutral density and polarizer filters (if you have any) will come in handy, too.
We strongly recommend you pack up some good sturdy boots and a waterproof raincoat with you. It really can get freezing cold, especially early in the mornings.
Elbe Sandstone Mountains is a hilly terrain where the greatest photo spots require moderate hiking, but it’ll always be conditioned by the shape of the other attendees, but there are spots easily reachable from the car as well
The minimum number of attendees on this photo tour is 4.
The maximum number of attendees is 7 attendees per tour.
In that case, it’s up to us to decide whether we want to organize the photo tour anyways, and we’ll update you shortly. In case we decide to not go through with the tour, we’ll return you the money paid in the tour account asap.
