Description

I propose you a 7 days and 6 nights trekking trip completed with a photo training, dazzling by the diversity of the proposed landscapes and the exceptional atmospheres but also so close to home (at two hours drive 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 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 penetrate these spaces in complete peace of mind, and to enjoy the comfortable weather and the striking lights.

In short, this is the perfect trip for hikers and photographers who are passionate about the great outdoors.

If you are interested in photo trips, why not let yourself be tempted by these stays in the countryside of Tuscany, in the Gran Paradiso National Park, in the sea and mountain atmosphere of Corsica, in the fjords and highlands of Iceland or the winter version in the Vercors?

Program

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

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

The rest of the week you will discover the different facets of the Bardenas desert, a unique place in Europe where you will become familiar with the environment and the atmosphere and obtain exceptional shots. You will also discover the troglodyte habitats, the herds, the Mediterranean birds...

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

The separation takes place the following Saturday at 11 am at the station of Saint-Jean-de-Luz.
