Join certified guide and professional photographer François on this photography and hiking weekend in the most beautiful spots in the Alps.


2 Days

Jun - Sep



Join me on this amazing photography and hiking weekend in Val de Bagnes, in the Swiss Alps.

I’m a mountain guide and professional photographer and we’ll be happy to take you to all my favorite spots. You”ll go back home with the most incredible images!

Photograph the sunset behind Mont Blanc as a full moon appears on the Matterhorn. Or capture the afternoon light on one of the most picturesque cabins in the Swiss Alps.

I’ll give you all the best tips for you to learn to take amazing photographs in a mountain environment. Speed, diaphragm and also depth of field…I’ll go over all of this with you!

And all this while hiking in the most beautiful valleys in the Swiss Alps. We’ll spend the night in the Igloo des Pantalons Blancs and then spend the next day walking back down.

These two hiking days are technically easy and open to beginner hikers and mountaineers with an interest in photography. You do need, however, a reasonable fitness level to be able to walk for around 5 hours a day.

Sounds like a fun weekend? It is! So put together a group and join me on this photography and hiking weekend in beautiful Val de Bagnes.

About the guide

Guide profile image


Mountain Guide

I was born on a freezing day in January, 1956, and that day’s sub-zero temperatures would serve as on omen for my professional life, dedicated to the mountains.

In college, I majored in Engineering and Natural Sciences (glaciology and geophysics), with the goal of understanding the mysterious forces that have sculpted the Earth’s mountains. After graduation, my passion for photography and writing led me to become a reporter specialized on issues related to the mountains.

A father of two, I have relentlessly roamed the vast horizons…of my native Valais, in Switzerland, from the plains to the high summits — always with my camera in hand and my notepad in my pocket. I currently alternate between my work as a journalist and my job as a mountain guide, which provides a delicate balance between body and mind that is essential to my well-being.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
