Tour Code: GBR55

A 4-day photography holiday based in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, focusing on landscape photography, plus a little astrophotography is conditions are clear.

4 days from £695(flights not included) Land Only Price: £695 SRS: £130


From our comfortable hotel in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, we will enjoy a full programme of photographic excursions from early morning until after sunset. The high granite tors, little-known valley of Tavy Cleave, Wistman's Wood, medieval clapper bridges and prehistoric stone formations all make superb subjects. Our holiday is timed to coincide with early autumn colour and the possibility of early morning autumn mist in Dartmoor’s valleys. Dartmoor benefits from some of the darkest skies in southern England and, if the skies are clear, we will use one of the most spectacular and accessible tors as a foreground, to make images of the stars, Milky Way and star trails.

The tour included a good selection of photographic locations, accessible from a central base. There was flexibility in the itinerary to swap things around to suit the weather/ time conditions.

Excellent leader- very good photographic tuition & excellent knowledge of Dartmoor. I came away feeling I'd learnt a lot both about photography & about Dartmoor.

Venues visited were superbly researched and journeys to them well organised. A lot was covered in the few days. A fabulous trip. The tour leader was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. He clearly knew his stuff; had clearly researched locations and was generous in sharing his knowledge. His quality of leading the tour was excellent. I'd travel with him again.
