Important information for our winter tours:
Instant photography involves a chemical process. Especially in winter the weather conditions have an impact on the pictures (cold, light conditions,etc.). You will receive the best advice on how to take the best possible pictures. Sometimes you will use black-and-white instead of color film. But that the uniqueness and unexpected outcome is part of the experience and that’s exactly what makes Polaroid pictures special and a one-of-a-kind souvenir.
