The Grisons

The Grisons is situated in Switzerland’s southeast. Here you will find 615 lakes, around 1000 mountain summits and 150 valleys.

This region is packed with wonderful scenery as far as your lens will see. You will get to photograph majestic mountains reflected in tranquil lakes.

Beautiful Alpine Sunrises

The most prominent lake is Silsersee near St Moritz. However, all offer wonderful reflections and the chance to capture them during the pre sunrise alpen glow as the first light of the rising sun falls upon the peaks. The perfect way to begin your day of photography.

Lush Green Valleys

Our tour will take you through some of the greenest valleys. One-fifth of the Grisons is forested with over 150 high-altitude valleys. The region’s highest peak, Bernina, reaches a staggering 4,049 metres (13,284ft).

Engadine valley is one of Switzerland’s most photogenic places. Its sunny climate, beautiful lakes and rivers, and a stunning alpine backdrop all provide numerous photo opportunities.

Classic Swiss Trains & Viaducts

The most iconic views in this region are of the massive red trains of Bernina Express and scenic Glacier Express crossing viaducts and emerging from mountain tunnels. The Rhaetian Railway transalpine route was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. There are many great viewpoints where you can photograph them from above.

Mountain passes & Light trails

The workshop will feature some stunning mountain passes, including Albula, Bernina, Fluela, Julier, and Maloja. These passes offer unrivalled views of the surrounding peaks. At some of the hairpin bends we’ll be able to capture car light trails at dusk during our long exposure sessions too.

Explore the Grisons with us

I live here in Switzerland, so I am fortunate that I can travel and photograph the Grisons on a regular basis. I look forward to showing you all the beautiful places I have discovered, some known, some not so well known.

Join Melvin and I for an unforgettable five-day Switzerland photo tour and workshop where you will not only learn a lot about photography, but come away with some beautiful photos and memories too.
