Our swamp tour sold out so quickly in 2019 that we decided to keep it in our portfolio of trips. We have teamed up with Georg Popp, an award-winning photographer, who knows the swamp areas intimately. We’ve paddled with him in the past, and in 2018 he has already taken over a tour from us, with great success. More information about Georg can be found on his “about” page.

BRIEF TOUR DESCRIPTION
With so many photographers nowadays organizing photo tours, and so many of them shamelessly copying existing tours, we decided to set up something completely unique and different again. This tour was the world’s first serious photo tour into the swamps of Louisiana and Texas!

Our prime subject on this tour will be the photogenic Cypress trees. These magnificent trees can be found primarily in and around swamps, which means that we’ll have to use a kayak to move around. This not only is a lot of fun, it’s also a wonderful way to experience the beautiful swampscapes. We are convinced you will experience gliding through the water in such a fairytale and surreal scenerary as pure magic.

“Just want to let you know that travelling with Georg in the Swamps was a delight. Magical landscapes and incredible scenery that Georg knows inside out and shares with his knowledge, humor and big heart. Georg helped to lift my photography to the next level. Combine this with the high standards of Squiver… A trip of a lifetime!” -José Gieskes (NL)

We have made a digital brochure for you with more detailed information, and some cool images to whet your appetite. There’s also practical information in there on the specifics of kayaks and swamp photography, and on how to get around. Please read it carefully, because this tour is not for everyone.

“Georg Popp was a great trip leader! He’s a fantastic and well-traveled photographer, and he really knew the area. More importantly, he was great coaching people on photo (and kayak!) technique for the swamps and pointing out possible compositions. The evening image critiques were super helpful, ensuring that all of us came home with a collection of stunning images.” -Phil Sokol (USA)

It’s a great place to take amazing pictures. Georg won in the “Wildlife Photographer of the Year” competition with one of his Cypress tree pictures. And Marsel’s Cypress swamp pictures won him the overall title “Travel Photographer of the Year”. The scenery is simply breath taking..
