A CLOSER LOOK
There is a reason why we keep going back in this part of the world in September: it is rice harvest time in the mountains of North Vietnam. Be in awe in front of the stunning rice fields, meet the ethnic minorities in their local markets and villages, and enjoy the local delicacies and wine. This is the photography tour that never disappoints.
Driving through the mountains, taking photos when the opportunities arise, having a lot of fun and food while improving your photography skills: this is our mission.
About North Vietnam
What makes the north so special? Why do we keep coming back year after year?
You could say the scenery. it is pretty special. Like nowhere else in Vietnam.
You could say it's the weather. it's nice to feel the cool wind at night.
But really it's the people you meet and the opportunities that present themselves. The ones that make you feel like you have stepped back in time 100 years and are the first person to discover an untouched area. Soaring mountain peaks and lush green valleys full of minority people bursting with smiles and friendly faces. As curious about you as you are about them. It is an experience that cannot be matched. And that's why we return. Year after year. It is always a journey of discovery. Nothing is ever the same. and yet it always feels familiar.

YOU WILL LEARN
01. What's Included
In all our tours we strive to make things easy so everyone can focus entirely on photography. This is the reason why our rates include everything during the tour: accommodation, transportation, all meals, and even tips to local people. What is not included is your international flight, visa, travel insurance, and souvenir purchase.
02. Group Size
Like in all our tours led by two photographers we limit the number of participants to 8, for better and more personalized coaching. As it is the case in my tours, we will mostly focus on people and ways to take their photos, in travel or street photography style. As we are doing photo critiques and Lightroom tutorials, make sure to take your laptop / iPad.
03. Accomodation & Transportation
Because of how remote some of the places we go to are, we will be staying in a few homestays. These homestay are comfortable, and all participants will have their own room. For all other nights we will stay in city hotels.
