Leila and Florian are the cutest couple. They live just outside the city of Innsbruck and share their love of adventure and travel with the world via their Instagram account @me.and.leila. Florian is also a wedding videographer which is how we first connected, through the Tirol wedding community. When we spoke about doing an adventure session in the Austrian Alps together, there weren’t many places these two hadn’t already been, but thankfully I had a couple of suggestions up my sleeve – and I definitely think we picked a winner!
Adventure Session In The Austrian Alps – Leila & Florian
Just under one hour’s drive from Innsbruck, in a secluded valley near the Austrian-Italian border is a beautiful mountain lake. Reaching the lake it pretty easy. It’s a short but scenic hike to get up to the lake, through grassy alpine pastures with wild flowers and wooden huts. As the path flattens out at the top, you reach the start of the lake. Surrounded by dense forest, when you first glimpse the lake, you only see a small section of it, but you walk around the pathway that circles it, you soon find out how big it is. The water is crystal clear and very inviting (although it was a little to cold for us)! At the start of our session the sun was still extremely harsh and bright but as we walked around the lake, the bright rays started turning in to that magical evening glow that reached levels of epicness as we ended our session back in the meadows where we started.
