First Light

Set off on an exclusive First Light nature walk and discover the magic of a new day with Belmond and Leica Sport Optics

Break of dawn. A gentle light steals over the landscape, grass glistens and lakes, sea and rivers twinkle in the first rays of sun. This time of day is exceptionally mesmerising at Belmond, for our hotels, trains and cruises are surrounded by some of the world’s most breathtaking natural wonders and heritage sites—some exclusively accessed at dawn.

So we’re thrilled to have partnered with Leica Sport Optics to create a series of dawn walks and experiences for you. Join a Leica photography or wildlife expert or head off on a self-guided walk, using powerful binoculars to spot flora, fauna along the way.
