Provence Paradise | 6 Day Photo Tour in France
Beginning around July and running until August is summer in picturesque Provence. 'Tis the season where the landscape is painted with the rich colors and soothing aroma of lavender. And that's just the beginning of what Provence can offer, as we take you on a tour of the region's small castle-like towns, cozy alleys, olive copses and beautiful landscapes that stretch from one horizon to another.
We will follow in the footsteps of the masters such as Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, who were entranced by Provence's natural beauty and were inspired to create many of their masterpieces here. Of particular note are the region's Valensole plateau, with its blue lavender blooms, lone trees in the vast fields, towns and villages, where will get a taste of the elements that inspired these two timeless artists.
While photographers will surely enjoy the tour, there is also much to be had and experienced for amateurs and beginners as well — Provence is the kind of place whose beauty manages to touch and inspire everyone. You'll learn to maximize the tools you have on hand to compose images in order to capture the area's magnificent landscapes, as well as process your photos. There are also a myriad of subjects to photograph as we stroll through the towns and villages, which will be filled with unique architecture and colorful people, and whose character changes as we move from daytime to nighttime.

We highly recommend that you get a travel and medical insurance. Your own domestic medical insurance and private health scheme will not cover you whilst you are overseas.
The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.
