A Spectacular Sunrise and A Magnificent Early Morning Walk on Victoria Peak
The sunrise view from Victoria Peak is quite simply spectacular. It is a must go destination for travel, city and nature photographers from around the globe.
Of course, the local photographic community is acutely aware that this is a unique visual treasure all year round. The views differ depending on the time of year, cloud formations and weather. One day can be crystal clear with enthralling cloud formations, another with low fog creeping though Victoria Harbor and between the towering skyline.
Getting to the best spot will require an early rise to be there well before technical sunrise. If you are up at 4AM, anyone who has experienced jet lag knows why, then what better way to kick off your day? You will enjoy a fabulous golden hour nature walk, a spectacular sunrise photo-op as the city slowly awakens and a well informed presentation of the history of the "Hill District" on Victoria Peak.
I am the guide who is happy to make all of this happen for you! And I am happy to provide photographic guidance.
I will meet you at your hotel in time to make our way to the Peak via taxi. We will then walk to the best place to view and photograph sunrise. Return will be via the Peak tram or taxi, whichever you prefer.
I you would like to continue with a memorable walk around the entirety of Victoria Peak (very popular among locals), this can be arranged by request.
