Romania Photo Tours - Steam train in Maramures

Group Photo Tours of Romania in 2024-25

All our photo tours of Romania are designed for travelers interested in culture, landscape, wildlife and photography by adjusting the pace at which we travel, the viewpoints from which to capture an attraction and the time to be in a place.

Our tours deliver a variety of unique cultural experiences that have a photographic appeal. We believe that in order to get the most of a shot one should first understand the culture that he is visiting and this is one of our priorities. Our tours take you behind the scenes, beyond the landscapes and the architecture. Our tours are about finding out and capturing the true essence of a country.

Our tour operator company specializes in organizing photo tours of Romania focused on people & culture, towns & castles, landscape, birds & wildlife.

Some of our tours are organized directly for photographers (see our private photo tours page) and we also plan group tours on set dates in partnerships with international companies and tour leaders or with a local tour photographer.

Below you will find the description of the tours that can be booked through us. Most of the above tours can be booked through our partners only so we haven’t included their description on our website.

So please contact us, tell us which tour/dates you are interested in and we’ll assist you in booking the tour either through us or provide you the information of our partners from abroad.
