2026 - Final Dates TBD

Join Natural Exposures on a 10-night photo adventure in the awe-inspiring Italian Dolomites! We’ll start in old-town Venice, exploring this city of waterways and color before continuing to the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Dolomites form part of the Southern Limestone Alps in northeastern Italy and are regarded as one of the most attractive alpine landscapes in the world. Eighteen peaks rise over 9,800 feet (3,000 meters). The dramatic pinnacles, spires, and steeples of these mountains offer a striking contrast to the colorful meadows, tranquil forests, and gentle foothills below. The towering, light-colored rocky cliffs and pristine lakes reflect mesmerizing rose-tinted hues for unforgettable sunsets. Rivers meander through valleys dotted with small, peaceful villages. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to capture vibrant photos in the majestic Dolomites!
