Description

Go for this 7 days / 6 nights hiking stay, completed with a photo training, for a dazzling trip by the diversity of the proposed landscapes and exceptional atmospheres but also so close to home (two hours from France).

After a first day in the limestone gorges of the southern Pyrenees under the incessant flight of griffon vultures, the stay continues in a star shape in the unique site of the Bardenas Desert, in the middle of breathtaking landscapes.

The choice of the date may seem surprising but it is the best period to be able to enter these spaces in complete peace and quiet, and to enjoy the comfortable weather and striking lights.

Program

We will meet in Saint-Jean-de-Luz and we will take the road to Spain together (about 2 hours) to arrive at a hotel at the foot of the Pyrenees on the first evening.

The next day we will take the time to photograph the round of griffon vultures and other birds in the colourful limestone gorges.

The rest of the week you will discover the different aspects of the Bardenas Desert, a unique place in Europe where you will take the time to get acquainted and get exceptional pictures. You will also discover the troglodyte habitats, the herds, the Mediterranean birds...

It will also be an opportunity to strengthen your skills in landscape or bird photography and to work on black and white views which are very rewarding for these subjects.
