Our Explorer-Guide

  • "I am an hiking guide, mountain bike monitor, from a small valley not too touristic in Haute Savoie (yes, yes, it does exist). I had the chance to travel to different destinations, for myslef or to guide groups but it is definitely in the Nordic countries that I have most whacked these last 8 years.

    I definitely prefer the word "trip" to "expedition". For me the fitness performance is not an objective in itself, it is juts a way. Large landscapes quest, immensity, sense of distance, autonomy, homelessness are my main motivations, and I love sharing them all with my groups.

    I spend my free time in different passions, fishing for trout in the mountains, renovating an old Savoyard farm, market gardening, photographing, and above all, picking crystals in the Mont-Blanc massif.

    See you soon on the way! "
