Teresa Kaufman Discovery Walks & Mini-Photoshoot

Discover, taste & photograph an authentic Chamonix and its surroundings

by Teresa Kaufman featured in Guides & tours

An opportunity to get in the picture with Teresa Kaufman as your personal photographer, guide and story teller. This is the perfect activity accessible to everyone; children, adults, grandparents - easy walking, incredible scenery, a moment to share. Non-skiers will love it in the winter. An activity to experience with loved ones or to give as a gift.

Created and led by author-photographer Teresa Kaufman since 2011, the Discovery Walks propose unique & confidential itineraries for world-travellers and photo & smartphone buffs to observe & capture scenes of the traditional Chamonix nature, scenery and life-style.

INCLUDED on all the Discovery Walks is a Mini-Photoshoot where Teresa’s talent is at your service to photograph or film you – with your smartphone during the experience

A large selection of itineraries - in both summer and winter - will allow you to uncover some of the valleys most beautiful and photogenic locations. On occasion, you will be crossing paths with the locals who also frequent these hidden paths. Originally designed to satisfy the curious photographer, Teresa has now adapted the walks to also satisfy smartphone and video artists as well as people who just want to soak up the atmosphere and better understand the valley in a more personal manner. And to come home with a selection of telling images to share.

Teresa is always finding new ideas and themes for her Walks. For full details check out her website where you'll see that she also offers a Discovery Walk with your Dog & Mini-Photoshoot. Even better, give her a call and she will tell you what is new for this season.

Duration of the walks: these walks last around 3 hours, depending on the itinerary, but this is flexible and full-day outings can be organised on request.

Useful Info: you'll be walking on small village roads and grassy paths in summer which turn to snowy country paths in the winter. So weather-appropriate shoes with good soles are advisable. If you like using walking poles, feel free to bring them along. In the event of very poor weather a replacement date will be proposed.

Transportation to the rendez-vous point: private car, local train (free with the carte d'hôtes) or by car-pool

Booking: please contact Teresa directly via the links on this page to book your walk
