Turn on your flashlight and discover the beautiful and strange underground world of the Azores.

Go Underground tour is different from the others adventures I offer. When you are in an environment without any natural light, our primary focus will be light painting photography. Photographing inside caves (lava tubes) is a lot of trial and error. There is some practice involved using flashlights and headlamps to achieve the effects you desire, but don’t worry, we have plenty of time to master this technique. Small hikes are involved moving from one cave to another, and I will prepare a picnic in the forest or inside the cave, so you can relax and enjoy nature.

If the weather is poor, going underground is a fantastic way to photograph, with the bonus of being protected by outside elements.

This tour is not just for photographers, but also for all people who want to embark on a great adventure. Suitable for all levels of photographic knowledge, whether you are a beginner, a hobbyist, or a skilled photographer, this tour will encourage you to question and experiment with different techniques, taking into account that the Azores always have something new and unpredictable to offer.

We promise you that you will come home with the best possible images of the Azores, and therefore be able to share all the fantastic experiences and memories with your family and friends personally and via social media.

Although we have a specific itinerary planned, we also allow some flexibility to take advantage of photographic opportunities we encounter along the day.
