More about our offer
With our excursion programme we like to guide you to the best locations for landscape photography, as well to those for flora and fauna.
Because we know the area well, we know what's possible in every week of the season.
In our practical workshops programme we can help you to be creative and effective with your camera and to improve the result of your photography.

For those who want to focus 6 days on nature photography, and don't want to waste time in seeking the best destinations, the optimum way is to choose the "Art in the Park" package or, special for bird lovers, a "BirdPicture" package, both include full-board accommodation and full day guided photographic opportunities.

Strong points of our workshops:
  • Good atmosphere.
  • Possibility to stay in one of our holiday apartments or a Casa Rural near to us.
  • For beginning as well as more experienced photographers.
  • Private coaching or very small groups, so everyone gets attention.
  • Our workshops are practical and hands-on and in the field. Also the possibility for getting experienced in hide-photography.
  • Enthusiastic team, excellent treatment.
