In 2021 we are living in the age of sustainability, and the pandemic has increased our desire for authenticity, proximity to nature and considerate consumption. No other destination meets this need quite like Switzerland does. We have always taken care to strike a balance between the needs of our guests, the needs of the local population and the needs of the environment.
We prepared a holiday experience for you that has a minimal burden on the environment and a positive impact on people, culture and nature. We offer you the chance to experience the region of Flims Laax Falera and to delve deeper, to experience all the region has to offer with the themes sustainability, active lifestyle and photography at the core of the week.
This adventure brings you the unique combination between experiencing and capturing: we will teach you how to elevate your photography to a new level to capture all those fun experiences in an even better way! Intertwined with hiking, biking and all the other outdoor activities we will focus on composition, lighting and take time to enjoy the best moments of the day for photography.
On this specially curated 7 days trip, with a maximum group size of 10 guests we aim to show off everything that the region has to offer. You will delve deeper in the community and experience unforgettable activities such as sleeping in a mountain lodge within the UNESCO World Heritage site, guided hikes in the mountains, experiencing a breathtaking Via Ferrata, sunset photography sessions, river rafting on the Rhine and brunch at a mountain hut. The base of the trip will be the Riders Hotel that offers a stunning vegetarian restaurant.
The trip will be led by photographer Chris König. Chris is an outdoor lifestyle photographer working internationally for various brands, focussing on authenticity, adventure and connection. Coming from a psychology background he combines his passion for coaching with photography by guiding photography tours and workshops to different places, including Iceland and Switzerland.
As the description of this package suggests, this will be an adventurous experience. We will sleep a night in a mountain hut and go on various hikes throughout the week. Locations aren't difficult to reach, but it is encouraged to be able to walk a few hours in mountainous terrain. Also some of the activities will bring us to heights (the Via Ferrata) and narrow ledges (although 100% safe and secured under guidance of professional guides).
The package is suitable for everyone interested in the combination of the outdoors and photography. Whether you are a beginner and just want to learn the basics or if you are a more advanced photographer and want to improve your skills: the program offers something for everyone. There is plenty of room to ask questions and receive individual feedback to help everyone in their personal progression.
