Easy Hike to Lake Bled Viewpoint – the Most Photographed Attraction of the Slovenian Alps

Don’t let the size of Slovenia fool you. This small country, bordered by four neighbors (Croatia, Hungary, Austria, Italy) and the Adriatic Sea, packs a good punch when comparing the impact the wonders of nature have on people who decide to explore it. Take for example the little church in the middle of a small island on a lake surrounded by mountains. It looks even better than it sounds, and with the help of Mountain Moments, your can see for yourself.

Hike to Lac Noir in the Dauphine Alps – Take a Panoramic Tour and ejoy the best view on La Meije

Meije, a mountain in the French Alps so tall it’s second only to Barre des Écrins in the Écrins massif, is not a piece of cake as far as hiking difficulty goes, but it sure is worth every step. This backpacking route will also test your panorama-shooting techniques, from setting up the tripod to balancing the highlights and shadows, as you will want to make the most of the views in front of you. With Mountain Moments, this becomes much easier.

Your Light Rosengarten Backpacking – Photo Spot Wuhnleger Lake Mirrors Red Mountain Peaks

Beautiful Wuhnleger Pond, which belongs to Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park, is not beyond the photographer’s reach.

So choose your point of view, set the exposure point, set your focus on the water, shoot, and prepare for what’s about to come.

World’s Most Famous Mountain Hut and Lake Seealpsee – An impressive Photo-Hike at Schäfler Mountain in Alpstein

When the hut is one of the main focal points of a hike, you know you are not dealing with ordinary, everyday hikers’ shelter.

Just imagine being there and using it as a vantage point for your photography hike. Good news – with the help of Mountain Moments, you can!

The Best Photo Vantage Point in Switzerland? Backpack and Discover Saxer Lucke!

The catchphrase, “life was more simple back then” can probably be attributed to photography too, with way-back-when generations of cameras having a lot fewer buttons and editing opportunities. But with photo occasions that nature provides us with, we can’t be anything else than grateful for seemingly unlimited memory space and flexibility on our favorite time-freezer contraptions. Take the Swiss Alps for example, and the Saxer Lücke destination we cover here. If you are a photographer and a nature lover with experience in hiking, this is the place to be.

Heavenly Hike Towards Romantic Villnöss Chappel St.Ranui (St.John) in the Heart of Dolomites

The moment we separate from our daily digital lives to reconnect with nature is the moment we regain that old, familiar feeling of being one with the Earth.

The Villnöss Valley in the Dolomites is a beautiful example of that, which makes this 6-kilometer hiking route such a desirable expedition. Find out everything you need to know about your next outdoor adventure.

Pinch Me Moment! Take This Neuschwanstein Dreamlike Hike Around the Fairytale Castle

On a 20-kilometer medium-difficulty dream hike to a Neuschwanstein castle, it is good to have company.
