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.

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.
