The Belluno Dolomites National Park / Dolomiti Bellunesi Parco Nazionale, ranks amongst the 10 most beautiful National Parks in Europe and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With a surface of 32.000 hectares, the Belluno Dolomites National Park is located approximately 70 miles North of Venice.

The Park remains largely wild and remote, with a rich biodiversity.

Explore one of the last great wilderness areas in Europe. Let nature inspire your creative self.

A minimum surface is occupied by streets and built-up areas, with no large tourist resorts or ski lifts crowding the landscape.

Diorama Days has partnered with the splendid four star Hotel Castel Pietra. Located in the picturesque town of Fiera di Primiero, with its enchanting views of the mountains, West of the National Park.

From Fiera di Primiero we will drive along mountain roads, taking in the landscape and stopping at pre-selected locations with breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains, valleys, lakes and forests.

In addition we will be dedicating time to post-processing the images. We will have ongoing one to one mentoring sessions aimed at nurturing your creativity and provide you with valuable insights into your practice.

There will be opportunity to absorb local culture, cuisine and home-made delicacies in the neighbouring villages. Participants might like to take advantage of free time to explore.

This Photography Retreat is limited to four participants, who will also enjoy a range of complimentary extras.
