Join Glenn Mckimmin and Rod Thomas and explore the breathtaking snow-capped panoramas and unique landscapes of this beautiful country on the Slovenia Winter Fairytale Photo Tour 2020.
If you’ve ever dreamed of traveling to a Winter wonderland that provides some of the most incredible and breathtaking photographic opportunities you could imagine, with no one around, then this untouched paradise is for you. Situated in the heart of Europe, Slovenia is a country nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea.
Fotoworkshops is the exclusive Australian operator of this tour. As with all Fotoworkshops new offerings, the Slovenia Winter Fairytale Photo Tour offers you an all-inclusive luxury accommodation and cuisine inspired journey through one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. You will experience Slovenia with our expert photographic guides along with local guides providing insight and knowledge into Slovenian culture. Accommodation and restaurants have been handpicked to combine a rustic local touch mixed with the finest luxuries Slovenia has to offer.
Snow-capped peaks, rugged mountain ranges, glacial lakes and turquoise rivers, coupled with its natural features and breathtaking architecture, make Slovenia a true photographers paradise. Not far from Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana is Bled. Set on a glacial lake fed by thermal springs, the town of Bled contains a church-topped islet and a cliffside medieval castle and is quite possibly one of Slovenia’s most famous attractions and our welcome dinner in this castle perched high above the lake is sure to be a highlight.
Join Glenn Mckimmin and Rod Thomas on this once-in-a-lifetime photographic tour through one of the world’s most interesting, beautiful and unique places.

Day 1 –Arrival to Slovenia
Arrive in Ljubljana and transfer to Bled. The workshop starts with an evening shoot to capture ‘blue hour’ at iconic lake Bled. Welcome dinner at one of Lake Bled’s fine restaurants.
Day 2-5 – Lake Bled & Julian Alps
We have three full days to explore and photograph Lake Bled and the amazing Julian Alps. Our subjects will vary from lakes and rivers, frozen waterfalls to hilltop churches and alpenglow on the highest peaks of Triglav National Park. We might even drive across the border into Italy or Austria in search for perfect winter conditions. If weather allows, we will take a hot-air balloon over Julian Alps – a once-in-a-lifetime adventure! As a reward for braving winter conditions we will be spoilt by some of the best food and wine the region has to offer. And nothing better than hopping into a pool of thermal healing water at the end of the day!
Day 6-7 – Ljubljana and around
Next stop is Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. A small and charming town with beautiful architecture and pedestrian only old town. During the next 2 days we’ll explore the hidden corners of the old city, with its baroque churches, diverse architectural details and castle with views across the capital. Weather permitting, we drive to one of Slovenia’s iconic hilltop churches for a sunrise. And again, foodies will be spoilt by Ljubljana’s amazing food – we might even take a food walk to sample best that the city has to offer!
