Breakfast Included

We know how hungry you'll be after such an early morning photography session, so we've included breakfast at the end of the tour!


The tracks are safe and easy, though a moderate level of fitness is required as we will be walking for an estimated 20-40 minutes to reach our shooting locations. We will travel at a slow pace and allow extra time to ensure we arrive on schedule.
