Trip Info

The journey starts with a lovely ride through the beautiful Lake Lucerne towards Vitznau. Switch to Europe’s first ever mountain railway up to Rigi-Kulm (6000ft / 1800m). You will be overwhelmed by the incredible panoramic view over the Swiss-Midland, the Alps and the lakes around you. Hike to the top or just enjoy the beauty of this unique scenery.

Then take the cogwheel train down to Rigi Kaltbad and change to the regular Cable-car to Weggis from where a relaxing boat cruise (1 hour) will take you back to Lucerne.

You will discover some of the most remarkable landscapes in Central Switzerland. Prepare to be amazed at unbelievable vistas, rugged mountain peaks and dramatic skies. Mount Rigi is a dreamer’s destination for adventurers, it will capture your senses and amaze you. At times, you will put down your camera and just take the drama in. We will most definitely cover all the iconic locations for photography at the right times of day with the best light, but we will also enjoy the culture of the region. We have traveled the region countless times, and will discuss it’s history and idiosyncrasies, as well as it’s great food, and we will enjoy the finest local meals.

This adventure is designed so you can mentally visualize a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.

In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country. Our time together will include discussions for inspiring ideas and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than in the Swiss Alps!
