Day 1 – 4:
We will pick you up at the airport of Munich no later than 12pm. After hugging each other (we're all huggers here) it is time to start the drive to the Dolomites. After a 4 hour drive through 3 countries we will arrive at our first hotel, in the charming village of Cortina. This will be our home for the first 3 nights.
From our base in Cortina we will photograph numerous amazing places within a short drive from our hotel. All the famous spots; Lago di Braies, Tre Cime, Cenque Torri, Passo Giau as well as several unknown gems in this area. We will also visit the amazing rock pyramids of Ritten. This place is a must see!
We move on to our next base close to Passo Rolle. Passo Rolle is a fantastic location with its small reflection in front of some of the most impressive peaks of the Dolomites.
Day 6 & 7:
The last 2 nights we are staying in Ortisei, one of the most charming villages in the Dolomites. Here we have a short drive to make it up to the legendary Alpe di Siusi mountain plateu. This area needs no introduction and is easily one of the most picturesque places in Europe. With a majestic backdrop, the peaks of Langkofel and Platkofel, there are endless possibilities for amazing shots!
After breakfast it is time to drive everyone to the airport in Munich. Prepare for more hugs at this point.
