Visit the forest areas of the South, where you can experience divine nature. The forests which cover 80% of this region are so well preserved that some areas are recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. This area is perfect for macro and wildlife photography. Three of Europe's large carnivore species (bear, lynx and wolf) live in the area. Explore it with the locals and find amazing viewpoints above the Kolpa river canyon.

This photography workshop was awarded with a bear friendly label, which is given to the practices that promote coexistence between bears and humans. The bear friendly label highlights the connection between bears and local communities, which are deeply intertwined in the northern Dinaric region and in the Alps.


590 EUR per person (790 EUR with bear spotting)
The South of Slovenia is special. Far away from the main routes of tourists, away from the crowd and full of divine, green forests, the Kočevska region is the most forested area in the country. The high plateaus of the Dinaric Alps, the deep canyon of the Kolpa river and rich wildlife are perfect spots for our wildlife and macro workshop. You will be guided by a master of macro photography Vasja Marinč, a local photographer from Kočevje, who will take you to the next level of macro, wildlife and landscape photography.
** = the last chance to book your place for Brown Bear spotting and photography is 2 weeks before the workshop start date


Workshop dates:
