Photo tour Northern and Western Greece
From Thessaloniki to Corfu
Greek Macedonia and Epirus
Northern and Western Greece is a rugged and mountainous area. The Pindos Mountains, a vast mountain range with peaks of over 2600 meters, stretching from the border of Albania to the south, forms the natural border between the western province of Epirus and Greek Macedonia to the north and Thessaly further south. It is also called the backbone of Greece.
We have organized an active photo tour for you with many photo opportunities, where you are guided by our photographer.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and there learned a lot!.
Voor beginners en gevorderden
De reis is geschikt voor de enthousiaste amateurfotograaf, zowel beginner als gevorderde. Mede door de kleinschaligheid van onze reizen, wordt de begeleiding op de individuele kennis en ervaring van de deelnemers afgestemd.
We besteden veel aandacht aan de techniek van het fotograferen, maar ook aan het kijken, aan compositie en aan het verbeelden van dat wat je wilt laten zien.

We start this trip with two overnight stays in bustling Thessaloniki, the capital of Greek Macedonia. Leaving the city, our tour takes you past the imposing Mount Olympus, which rises from the sea, as it were. We are then on our way to Meteora, famous for its many monasteries, built on top of steep rock formations.
Via Kozani and the mountain town of Metsovo we drive to the area called Zagori. We visit beautiful mountain villages and the famous Vikos gorge with its many old stone bridges, still from the time of the Turkish occupation. Turkish influence can also be tasted in the extensive and very tasty cuisine. In the 1920s, a large group of ethnic Greeks were expelled from the cities on the east coast of Turkey and the Black Sea area. They mainly settled in Northern Greece and brought their culinary tradition with them.
Via Ioanina, located on the lake of the same name, we arrive in the port town of Igoumenitsa, from where we cross over to Corfu with its charming, originally Italian capital Kerkyra.
