2023 Dolomites Photo Tour

The Dolomite Alps in the Fall

Join us for a Dolomites Photo Tour, where we will take you to the most breathtaking locations in the Dolomitic Alps. We will visit the most iconic spots, such as the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo, as well as some hidden gems that we have discovered over the years. We’ll also have the opportunity to capture our Milky Way galaxy in locations that are ideal for astrophotography and have minimal light pollution.

We run our Dolomites photo tours in October, the time of year when the alpine trees turn orange and red, and you can shoot a vertical Milky Way setting behind the mountains.

OVERVIEW

On this Dolomites fall photo tour, we will focus on capturing the most spectacular landscapes in northern Italy during the times of day with the best light.

From huge, rugged mountains, jagged peaks, and alpine hills to impressive blue lakes, picturesque churches, and dark, starry skies, The Dolomites in northern Italy is one of those breathtaking destinations you must visit at least once, especially in late October when the golden autumn colors are in all their fall glory!

We will spend eight magical days visiting iconic mountain views like Cinque Torri, Tre Cime, Alpe di Siusi, and Passo Gardena; photogenic blue lakes like Lago di Braies, Lago d’Antorno, Carezza, and Limides; and beautiful alpine valleys like Val di Funes.

We will personally help you capture the best possible images during our Dolomites photography workshop and show you the best techniques to shoot any type of subject in different light conditions: sunrise, sunset, midday, twilight, night, etc.

2023 Dolomites Autumn Photo Tour Itinerary

Our Dolomites photo tour itinerary will be flexible. We know the area very well, so our goal will be to photograph the Dolomitic landscapes under the best possible conditions depending on the weather forecast.

DAY 1: Dolomites Photo Tour

This Dolomites autumn photo tour will begin at the Venicegreen Agriresort hotel, where we’ll meet at 9:00 AM. This hotel is very close to Venice Marco Polo airport, and we’ll arrange a pick-up at 08:30 AM at the airport in case you don’t stay at the hotel the night before. After a meet and greet with the rest of the group, we will drive north towards the Dolomite mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which takes roughly 2 hours to reach.

Once in the mountains, we will visit the tour’s first location, Lake Carezza. There, we will photograph the sunset over one of the bluest lakes in the Dolomites, which is surrounded by beautiful pine trees and jagged peaks in the background.

After that, we will drive to our first hotel in Ortisei, where we will spend the next two days.

DAY 2: Dolomites Photo Tour

On the second day of our Dolomites fall photo tour, we will start the day by photographing the sunrise over Seceda. 

Seceda offers one of the most beautiful mountain experiences you can enjoy in the Dolomites. Everything in Seceda is a feast for the eyes, especially the impressive ridgeline that is surrounded by some of the most photogenic pointed peaks in the South Tyrol.

To enjoy the best conditions, we’ll take a private 4WD to be on the top of Seceda ready to photograph the sunrise. Photographing the sunrise at Seceda is a special experience; the cable car is still closed, so we’ll enjoy this spectacular location all to ourselves.

After breakfast in one of the local huts in Seceda, we will move to our next location: Val di Funes. In this famous alpine valley, we will photograph cozy little houses and picturesque churches, like St. Johann and St. Maddalena. We will spend the entire day there shooting from different perspectives and waiting for sunset. Hopefully, we’ll get to see the Odle Mountains turn red from the alpenglow.

If conditions are good for Astrophotography, we will shoot the Milky Way and do some astrophotography if conditions are clear.

DAY 3: Dolomites Photo Tour

On the third day of our Dolomites autumn photo adventure, we will photograph the sunrise at the beautiful Alpe di Siusi.

Alpe di Siusi is a vast plateau with many alpine hills, little huts, pines, and huge mountains in the background. It offers a lot of photography options for capturing different types of landscape images. If conditions are good, here you’ll photograph one of the most classic images of the Dolomites with the fog over the rolling hills and the mountain huts.

 

Then, we will move to our sunset location: Passo Gardena. This is the valley in the Dolomites par excellence and is surrounded by endless meadows and jagged peaks. Here, starting in September, you can enjoy a phenomenon that is also known as “Burning Dolomites,” a wonder of nature where the sun, just before setting, illuminates the most impressive peaks in the valley.

After sunset, we will drive to our hotel near Lago di Braies.

DAY 4: Dolomites Photo Tour

The next morning of our Dolomites photo workshop, we will wake up early to enjoy the sunrise at Lago di Braies. This is arguably one of Italy’s most photogenic locations and the most beautiful of the Dolomitic lakes, with its emerald waters and the striking natural landscapes that surround it.

Our next stop will be another location where we will photograph the  “Piramidi di Terra” (Earth Pyramids); a group of natural hoodoos that is one of the best hidden gems in the Dolomites. Here we will photograph the hodoos from different viewpoints before lunch. 

After lunch, we will arrive arrive in Cortina D’Ampezzo, probably the most classic area in the Italian Dolomites, where we will spend the next three nights. 

We will check-in our hotel and go for a sunset session at the majestic Passo Giau, where we’ll photograph the sunset in an open valley overlooking some of the most imposing peaks in the Dolomites such as Marmolada, Tofane, or Cristallo. If conditions allow, we will do a Milky Way session from Passo Giau

DAY 5: Dolomites Photo Tour

On the fifth day of this Dolomites photo adventure, we will wake up early to capture the sunrise over the breathtaking Cinque Torri, five massive rock formations located in the heart of the Dolomites. This is an ideal location to capture the sunstar and the nice pinky clouds of the sunrise with endless photo opportunities. 

After our morning shoot and a break in the hotel, we will continue on our Dolomites photo trip to the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Here, we will embark on a 1.5-hour scenic hike to this imposing spot, where we will photograph the most iconic peaks in the Dolomite Mountains. Our plan will be to photograph the sunset as well as the Milky Way if the skies cooperate. 

This is one of the best places for astrophotography in the trip, so we might change the date of this plan according to the weather conditions so we can maximize the chances of clear skies and a succesful Milky Way session.

DAY 6: Dolomites Photo Tour

The next day, we will drive up to two of the most iconic lakes in the Dolomites, Lago di Misurina and Lago Antorno. We will enjoy the sunrise and capture some long exposures during the golden morning light. These lakes are especially photogenic during the fall, when the pine trees around the lakes turn gold.

During midday, we will do a photo editing session so we can work on the images taken during the trip. We will show you how to edit different type of images, from basic edits to more advanced techniques and also night photography shots.

In the evening, we will take a short hike up to Lago di Limides, a small, beautiful lake with outstanding views of the impressive Tofana di Rozes mountain range. We will explore the area and wait for the sunset light.

DAY 7: Dolomites Photo Tour

On the seventh day of our Dolomites photography trip, we will take a private 4WD taxi to Lago Federa. This lake is one of the most spectacular locations in the Dolomites during the fall, with endless larches and a lake surrounded by the distinctive mountains of Croda da Lago. Getting there requires a considerable hike, so we will take 4WD private transportation so we can be there in time for sunrise. 

After this, we’ll leave Cortina D’Ampezzo and drive through Selva di Cadore, where we will photograph some picturesque churches with the fall colors, and Allegue, a small population by the Allegue Lake considered one of the most beautiful villages in the Dolomites. 

Later, we will drive southwest on a spectacular road to Passo Rolle, where we will take the road to Refugio Baita Segantini, a quiet place that is ideal for capturing the sunset over a small lake with marvelous views. After the sunset session, we’ll do a last group dinner close to Passo Rolle.

DAY 8: Dolomites Photo Tour

On the final day of this Dolomitic Alps photo tour, we will capture the sunrise in Passo Rolle and the surrounding area.

After breakfast, we will pack up and drive you to Venice Airport so you can catch your flight back home. Expect to be at Venice Airport no earlier than 2:00 PM, so you can take flights that leave at 5:00 PM or later.

What makes this Dolomites Photo Tour unique?

Immersive

Our workshops are completely centered on photography: finding the best moments of light during and creating an intensive experience that is conducive to learning and taking the best images.

Intimate

Our workshops are limited to small groups with a ratio of no more than five students per instructor. This is also an important factor for providing the attentive instruction you need during the tour.

Exclusive

During this workshop, we will photograph the famous locations in the Dolomites as well as some hidden gems that we have discovered while exploring in the past that are rarely visited or photographed.

Dedicated

We will discuss your goals before the tour so we can create a dedicated instruction plan for you. It doesn’t matter your age or skills; we will design your plan and provide you with materials before, during, and after the workshop so the learning process is not limited to just the tour.

Proven

We have spent years designing national and international photo tours with successful results, helping photographers with everything from the simple task of getting off Auto to the ambitious goal of capturing complex images. Dan’s online courses have also helped more than 400 photographers over the last few years.

Unforgettable

Beyond the photography, our photography workshops help build strong bonds that last forever. After our trip, you’ll feel like you have been with a group of friends rather than on a standard tour. We are thankful to have plenty of repeat clients who keep traveling and learning with us.

Frequent questions about our Dolomites Photo Tour

Whether you are experienced or just starting out in photography, you are welcome to join us, and I am convinced that you will progress very fast. Together, we will get you back home with a greater and deeper knowledge of many photography topics.

Once you sign up for the workshop, we will discuss your skills and goals for this tour, and I’ll organize a teaching plan so you can make the most of this experience. You’ll also receive access to Dan’s Capture the Milky Way course so you can start preparing your astrophotography before the trip.

Most locations are a relatively short walk from the parking lot. The longest hike we will take is Tre Cime, which is a 1.5-hour scenic and easy walk from the parking lot and another 1.5-hour hike to get back. Some other locations, such as Lago di Limides, require hikes of just about 30 minutes. All hikes are easy and the terrain will be mostly flat.

We will be driving, walking, and shooting a lot during the tour, so we recommend being in good physical shape to be able to enjoy this experience.

There is no age limit. This trip is perfect for anyone over 18 years old who wants to photograph the Dolomites with us.

Capture the Atlas is drone-friendly. Both Dan and David are experienced drone pilots and can help you with your drone photography.

We will advise you on the areas where you are allowed to fly and show you the best aerial photography techniques. The Dolomites are a paradise for flying drones and we highly recommend bringing your drone if you like aerial photography.

Our Happy Students!

The Capture the Atlas Dolomites photo tour was excellent. Dan and David made adjustments to the itinerary based on changing weather conditions. Group size was also great with five participates per guide. In between photo sessions we had several helpful classes from David and Dan on composition, photo techniques and Milky Way. What we learned was reinforced during the photo shoots. I highly recommend Capture the Atlas if you want to take photos in amazing places with people that know what they are doing.

I went on the 2022 Dolomites trip last October. It was my first trip with Capture the Atlas and it was truly one of the great experiences of my lifetime. Dan Zafra and David Aguilar were just the best hosts and teachers you could have. The advance planning was meticulous down to the finest details: hotels, meals, timing of shoots, locations of shoots, etc. The scenery and locations there are spectacular. They keep you busy all day and into the night so you can experience all that these great mountains have to offer.

The tour was well organized with constant attention to making sure we were at the right place at the right time for the best photos. The highlight of the week was obviously the amazing scenery. Throughout the trip, Dan and David provided excellent tips and instruction for getting the best photos of the subjects. This was my second tour with Capture the Atlas, and both have been amazing experiences.

I recently participated in the Swiss and French Alps tour and was blown away. Dan and David were incredibly attentive to each participant and both were overflowing with their knowledge of photography as well as the locations we visited. They safely got us to each location and all the accommodations, transportation etc. were very comfortable. The places we visited were exactly what was advertised in the marketing materials which was spectacular because the images were what drew me into signing up for the workshop! Best of all were the other participants which made the workshop 10 stars, but unfortunately, I am only limited to giving 5 stars!

Dan and David are excellent instructors, navigators, and planners! I was on the Swiss & French Alps Tour. The seasonal timing of this trip was perfect. David knows this area very well and is an expert photographer and guide. If you didn't know how to compose your shot or weren't sure which camera setting would be right, or perhaps you're not sure how to bracket or use focus stacking, David or Dan would show you. This is a very professional photo tour with a lot of beautiful views, education, and a lot of smiles. Dan and David make it fun.
