Explore-Share.com, the first online booking platform for mountain adventures worldwide, was founded in 2014 by Gauthier and Nicolas, two mountaineering and ski touring fans who found it difficult to find qualified mountain guides during their trips around the globe.
Whether it’s reaching a summit in Nepal, hiking off-the-beaten-path in the Alps or making turns on untouched powder snow in Japan, Explore-Share.com aims to help make your dreams a reality by connecting you with the right mountain guide. This online booking platform lists more than 5000 mountain trips in more than 70 countries, all of them led by over 1000 certified mountain guides.
Together with Tomás, Nicolás, Ryoko and Guadalupe, the Explore-Share team works in partnership with mountain guides and mountain leaders around the world in order to help them promote their services and find new clients.
At Explore-Share, we believe great outdoor activities enrich peoples’ lives. Our mission is to encourage users to get out there and fulfill their dreams!
At Explore-Share we hope to:
- Promote guided mountain activities as a great way to enjoy nature and the outdoors.
- Promote mountain safety by working with certified guides, raising awareness and offering guided courses.
- Use our expertise to promote less well-known areas and activities that we believe should receive more attention.

Gauthier most recent guided mountain trips include a Matterhorn ascent via the Lion’s ridge (Italian side) and a ski tour in Finnmark (Norway). In January 2018, Gauthier and some of his friends will go on a ski trip to Hokkaido, Japan, with Daisuke, a local IFMGA mountain guide.
At Explore-Share.com, he is in charge of business development and the product development team and strives to make the platform as user-friendly as possible for both users and guides. Feel free to contact him with suggestions for the site!
His last guided mountain trip was the Cerro Solo ascent, in El Chaltén (Argentina).
Tomás’ last guided trip was an ascent of the Domuyo Volcano in Patagonia.
Ryoko first contacted Explore & Share as a user and thought it would be great to introduce the platform to her home market in Japan. You can reach out to her to find out more about guided trips in Japan or anywhere else in the world! She works from Chamonix – the birth town of mountain guiding – where she is also developing her new interest in paragliding and speed riding.
Ryoko’s last guided trips were: a 3-day backcountry ski tour in Shirakawa and a tent-based backcountry ski trip on Teshiodake, Hokkaido. Both are well kept secret spots of Japanese powder skiing
