#6 Auvergne region
Published on Lonely Planet.com
Cast your eyes upon the Auvergne’s dramatic volcanic landscape and you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Iceland rather than the heart of France. And yet this region has been overlooked by visitors. No more, though – the Auvergne is reinventing itself with a series of ambitious art projects and a growing portfolio of wilderness adventures …– Loneley Planet Best in Travel 2016
The travel guide Lonely Planet placed the Auvergne in the world’s top 10 regions at #6 to visit, as one living in this region, knowing its beauty, I can say this nomination is well deserved !
This overlooked region has such a diversity in nature wilderness, a real (Nature) photographer’s candy box.
Also want to see with your own eyes why Lonely Planet put the Auvergne region in the world’s 10 regions to visit, join me in the field and photograph
its remarkable scenery with glacier-carved valleys and volcanic peaks, the Chaîne des Puys, (a 40km chain of craters and lava domes), volcano lakes, waterfalls and springs, the Tuscany the Auvergne and much more. Every season has its own beauty, that’s why I organize workshops and photo tours (in cooperation with Nordic Vision Photo tours) all year round.

What workshop-photo tour members are saying:
” This photo workshop was a great enrichment! Kristel not only showed me a different approach to photography but also one of the probably most impressive valleys of Auvergne” –Guillaume/France
“…We loved Auvergne – it was absolutely the most interesting and beautiful of the regions of France which we visited (including Paris and Dordogne) – and we intend to return as soon as possible, probably this time in autumn for fall colors. And we definitely will have a return engagement with Kristel! Highly recommended! ” – Steve / USA

New in 2016
one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. A season full with colors and atmosphere
During the 7 days we will explore this beautiful mysterious forest landscape and visit a couple of lakes in the middle of the forest. We will explore the high Chaumes du Forez with its wetlands and open landscapes. You will discover a beautifull old glacial valley, Vallée du Fossat. We strive to organize at least two photo discussions, focusing on how to create effective compositions (what works what does not) learning to look differently (eye for detail) and depending on the groups experience some basic image processing. The program includes short walks in nature to forests and lakes (depending on the weather conditions) and we will drive higher up in the mountains. This is not just a photo-tour but a workshop with professional guidance, where the group is kept small so that everyone gets personal attention and practical tips in the field.

Home again with the accomplishment of my first photo-tour for Nordic Vision in my backpack!
I can now look back at this very pleasant week and really enjoy my first group who was just great: we had fun and learned a lot from each-other!
As I wanted to give every participant the right amount of time and attention, I didn’t take a lot images myself but I’ve already seen some wonderful pictures they took then.
Thank you everyone for the enthusiastic participation and your good moods during the early morning sessions 😉
The summer tour will be back for sure next year. For new dates and other Auvergne photo-tours in 2016 (Winter & Autumn) keep an eye on the website of
Nordic Vision or here on Visions and Nature. I hope to promote the new tours online in a couple of weeks.
