A short photo holiday in combination with a great learning experience
Located in the very heart of France, Auvergne is in the centre of the Massif Central area.
The region has four departments, Allier, Puy de Dôme, Cantal and Haute Loire.
Auvergne is a unique area and displays its own personality and beauty of nature in each and every part. Auvergne is an untouched region of mountains, volcanoes and rocky gorges, with Clermont-Ferrand as the capital city. It is also a popular holiday destination from the French and not yet discovered by mass tourism. This makes this region pure in all essence.
The best of Auvergne Photo tour will focus on the Puy de Dôme area, maybe the best known in the region.
What to expect during this 7-day photography workshop: we will explore Puy de Dôme ‘ hot spots’ , its diverse hillside landscape scenery, sunflowers and wine fields, which make it the so-called Tuscany of Auvergne. We will look at how the spectacular and unique light conditions play on the dramatic Massif Central mountains and volcano chains. Explore the Billom area and its picturesque villages, through the maze of small hillside roads and small hiking trails, in the later afternoon light. On the way you will discover one of Auvergne’s most beautiful valleys, National Reserve, Vallée de Chaudefour and get some fresh sparks at the many local waterfalls.
