Mount Olympus, 3-day guided hiking tour in Greece

Dimitris is an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable, reliable, flexible and very safe. He was quickly able to gauge our group’s skill level and adjust our group’s needs (pace, timing, routes, etc). I would definitely recommend him for any adventure you have in mind. Thanks Dimitris for such an amazing experience!

Hut-to-hut ‘Vues du Mont Blanc’ Trekking Tour

Ben was a great guide. I appreciated how straight forward he was, no sugar coating things. We really had a great time. Discussion of how what the hike really is (Tour des Muveran) and the level of difficulty required should be explained in the tour synopsis. As it is, I don’t think most people on the tour were ready for that level.

Most enjoyable stunning hike with Dave (the guide). We managed to summit 2 peaks which far exceeded my expectations that we could do it in the first place! The views were absolutely amazing! Dave was patient and informative - and never hurried us along - and was always encouraging and supportive throughout the whole hike in what we could achieve.

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

Mt Olympus was breathtaking. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Greece who is interested in outdoor adventures. But do not underestimate the difficulty as the climb was pretty steep. Akis was a wonderful guide. He was very kind and adaptive to our fitness and speed and made sure we felt comfortable with the pace of the hike. Was easy to communicate and coordinate.

This is a stunning hike with magnificent scenery and views throughout. Fabrice was a wonderful guide. He had expert knowledge about the area and throughout the hike pointed out numerous different types of wildlife, plants, rocks as well as explaining the history of the area. He was passionate and engaging. This was a great experience and one of the highlights of our holiday.

Excellent service from explore-share. I did the one-day option; was picked up from my hotel in Tokyo at 1 am and started the climb at 4 am. We were lucky with the weather and the hike was fantastic, but strenuous. My guide, Kan was super helpful and knowledgable. I recommend him to anyone who is looking to do the hike up Mount Fuji.

Ascent to “Cerro Uran” and “Cerro Chirripo”

The view was absolutely amazing. I recommend this route vs. just the climb to Chirripo, as the loop route give no overlap of trail plus it is about the same amount of time. I actually preferred the trail up to Urán as it was more scenic. The views from the top of the 2 peaks are worth the challange.

Cerro Chirripo guided ascent in 4 days

The initial contact via the internet portal explore share was somewhat unusual and automated. Certainly adapted to Zrit, but impersonal ä, especially if you were planning on the assumption of an individual trip. However, one was quickly in contact with Armin, the local travel organiser. From then on, the planning was perfect and very personal. Everything worked out perfectly. From the overnight stay in San José bus to the transfer or overnight stay at the starting point. Armin could not accompany us, instead Wilson a local led us up the Cerre Cirripó. He was an extraordinarily friendly guide with proven knowledge of flora and fauna, especially the local birdlife. All in all, an excellent trip with impressive scenery and unforgettable experiences.

4-day short Cordillera Huayhuash trek

Romer was amazing. He was very responsive and helpful. He always replied within a few hours (at the most), and was very accommodating when we needed to change things. He even went and paid a deposit at a local hotel to hold our reservation for us. I can't say enough good about Romer. The itinerary of the trip was a bit difficult. It started at a camp that was 13,700 above sea level, and the first day of trekking was 8 hours of hard terrain. Other treks I've done start lower and have a pace of 5-6 hours per day. Also, our guide Fredy was a bit inexperienced. He was a very kind person, but didn't provide much service to our small team.

Climbing Mount Olympus, 1 day ascent to the summit

What a great trip!! Akis is and was every inch the professional, collecting us right outside our hotel and transporting us to the start point, his advice and knowledge were excellent, I learned lots about life on the mountain from him, from the wild horses living the good life to the fit looking cattle and sheep the farmers keep, Olympus was the star of the show, at scala a scary, jaw dropping beauty confronted us, and with Akis’s steady hand we made it up and down with no dramas!! Loved it as did my partner Angie!!

1-Day Trek to Rysy from the Polish Side

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

Trip itself was fantastic, the view on Skala was better than expected. On the other hand Akis (our guide) was not what we expected - he was most of the time on his phone during the hike and was not very interested in making this trip nice for us. He barely spoke to us and was going around 100m ahead of us most of the time and since he was on his phone most of the time he didn't bother with us. We expected a friendly guide which will say few things about mountain and make this nice trip for us but we definitely didn't get this. My girlfriend had issue with ligament and he didn't even bother to ask how is she, he kept distance and didn't offer any help. We couldn't even get a 'good morning' from him which looked really weird to other hikers as well, since even they asked what is wrong with our guide and why does he act like that. The only reason i am giving him 2/5 stars is because he set good pace for us. Would not recommend hiring this guide - if you want a friendly person which will guide, help and make trip memorable for you - you won't get that with him

Climbing Mt. Fuji during this time was most definitely worth it. There were no crowds to contend with and the experience was very enriching. Cveto is an exceptionally amazing guide with decades of experience and was an absolute pleasure to be around. During the trip, my legs cramped up to the point of barely being able to walk. However, with Cveto's attentiveness and patience, we were able to make it to the top and back down without any issues. Having Cveto on this climb was highly vital for my trip and it would be a mistake to not have him accompany yours. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

For those who don't have the convenience of time or just want to avoid a crowd, would recommend this Mt. Fuji hike. No open amenities, but it also means no lines. My guide, Cvetko, was exceptionally knowledgeable - makes sense having done this hundreds of time - and extremely patient with this newbie hiker. I was worried I couldn't do it, but his gentle guidance made such a difference. I am proud to say I made it to the top. Definitely recommend!

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

Akis was phenomenal. He was very attentive and informative through the whole experience. He even gave me ideas of other areas to explore on my own in other parts of Greece during the rest of my trip. I appreciated that fact that he fed off of me in terms of conversation, rather than trying to lead unnecessary chit chat. I prefer to hike mostly in silence and really enjoy my surroundings. He did make sure that I was comfortable with the pace regularly and also made sure to make me stop for rest and hydration often, even when I didn’t think I needed it (trust me, you need it). It was a once in a lifetime experience, and Akis made sure that it was exceptional!

Trekking the “Huayhuash Circuit” in Peru in 10 days

We had such an amazing time on this Trek! From the beginning to the end we had wonderful service through “Wild Huayhuash - Tomas Operator”. It is an amazing, beautiful, take your breath away hike. The guides are knowledgeable, kind, and extremely helpful. We had guide/cook Rosmel, guide Angel, operators Edgar and Tomas. Rosmel made us food every day(breakfast, lunch, snacks (popcorn), and dinner), woke us up to a fresh cup of tea every morning in our tent, and guides us through the first few days of our hike. He was like Superman carrying our lunch on his back every day of the trek (think heavy food in pots, with juice). Angel was the guide the rest of the way through the trek and was also very kind and professional. He was funny, paced us well through the hard sections, and let us have breaks whenever we needed. Both Rosmel & Angel were always working to get us to the best viewpoints, and best camping spots first, before the other groups. They also both helped when I had an asthma attack during the trek. From the operator side, Tomas and Edgar were amazing. Going through all the information we would need, allowing us to leave extra things in their office, allowing us to rest and shower in one of their rooms at no extra charge when we got back from the trek, and Edgar helped us find a map of Huayhuash so we could document our journey when we got back (finding a map of Huayhuash in Huaraz was not easy). This was a well put together group, and always seemed to be one step ahead of the other Huayhuash trekking groups. I highly recommend!

Fabrice was a wonderful guide who was very knowledgable about the area - from geography, history to the animals and plants we saw on our hike, he had a story to tell for all of them! He was incredibly nice to drive us to the mountains and back our Airbnb (only around 1.5 hours into the mountain) and the hike that we settled on was perfect - we saw multiple groups of ibexes and chamois, took in the wonderful Alps scenery and ended our hike at a beautiful alpine lake. I can’t recommend the experience more since it added so much to our trip in the Riviera, it was a truly differentiated experience. Would definitely be back again.

He pointed out great photo opportunities, so we managed to take plenty of nicely-framed photos on our smartphones. Fabrice also introduced us to the game of pétanque and thanks to him, we were able to understand and appreciate the games as they were being played by the locals during our trip.

Alex is attentive to details and adjust route and speed to your conditions. If I go to mountains in Colombia again, it would be with Alex. Thanks for such amazing trip.

Cerro Chirripo guided ascent in 4 days

This whole experience was one of ease and adventure. Armin kept great communication through the booking/permit process. Once at the Hotel Pelicano, I was well taken care of. The accommodations were amazing and the food, delicious!! I feel extremely grateful for my guide, Wilson, who grew up and lives here. His knowledge of the area added a great value to my experience. He seems to have a passion for birds and continuously stopped to listen and identify the bird song and then educate me. I enjoyed this very much. I came to love the sound of the black-faced solitaire. Often, my head was down, watching my feet and if not for Wilson pointing things out I may have missed a lot. What an adventure! I highly recommend this trek!! Thank you so much Armin & Wilson❤️

Cerro Chirripo guided ascent in 4 days

This was by far the most strenuous trek I have ever attempted, but thanks to Armin’s leadership and encouragement I was able to rise to the challenge. Make no mistake, this one is hard - especially the 2nd day (12 hour hike from Paso de los Indios to Uran, Chirripo and ending at Crestones base camp). The day starts out in the dark and freezing cold and there are limited opportunities to replenish food and water. This is not a problem as long as you are prepared (read the itinerary closely and ask as many questions in advance as you need to understand what to expect). In spite of any technical difficulty and physical discomfort, I 100% recommend this hike. The scenery was breathtaking and the opportunity to hike in peace and solitude amongst the highest points of land was truly amazing. Thank you Armin and Explore-Share for making this happen.

Nevado de Colima National Park day hike in Mexico

I am a 65-year-old woman traveling alone this year and I would not have been able to do this hike without a guide ... if nothing else, only his 4WD truck was going to get me to the start (a long dirt road that has its issues). I live at sea level, so just hiking to the ridge (12,000) was enough for me. I very much enjoyed Juan's passion for the park and conserving it. On our way back down the hike, I was happy to join in picking up trash.

Ascent to “Cerro Uran” and “Cerro Chirripo”

The Tour with Armin to the peaks of Uran and Chirripo was quite unique. A wonderful experience that I will never forget. The view from Uran and Chirripo was fantastic and made you forget all the efforts needed for the ascent. If you like the mountains and hiking, you will love it. Armin is a perfect tour guide. He has a lot of experience and many interesting stories. Armin was always there, when I needed help. The communication and organization was also really good. All in all, I can definitely recommend the tour with Armin.

Malinche, Iztaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba, Climb the 3 highest peaks in Mexico, 8 days

The guides on Malinche and Orizaba were very good. But there was a big problem on Iztaccihuatl. I said to each of the guides that I had there that I wasn't bothered about seeing the sunrise from the top, and would it be possible to start a bit later than the usual 1am? They both agreed that it was, one saying that the reason for leaving so early was that normally they needed to take clients back to Mexico City after the climb, and in my case that wasn't necessary as I would stay at the visitor's centre. So in the end we left the visitor's centre at 4:30am. When we got to a foresummit of Iztaccihuatl at 11am, my guide said that we had left very late, and would have to turn back. So we never reached the top, to my great annoyance. In retrospect the best option would have been to have spent one night at the refuge at 4700m before going to the top, but this was never really offered as a possibility.

Cerro Uran Ascent in the Chirripó National Park

Overall fantastic trip. We actually went up Cerro Uran because Cerro Chirripo was fully booked during the Dec / Jan season. I appreciated that Armin made this suggestion to switch, so we were able to get a similar experience despite booking late (2-3 weeks in advance). His pre-departure instructions were pretty clear and comprehensive, so we had appropriate cold weather clothing. We could have used a little more clarity on the accommodations. The link says only 1 stay at the base camp shelter, but it actually also included the night before in Herradura. So I didn’t need to book the hotel at Pelicano the night before (but Pelicano gave us a 50% refund). I also would have appreciated if he let us know he would not be our guide. I liked our guide Veronika, but was surprised by it when we arrived. So ask in advance, if you care who your specific guide is. Veronika was lovely, was flexible on pace (so we ascended to the summit the first day to see the sunset, while all her precious groups waited until the next day to see the sunrise). Only thing to note is that her English is not strong, so we didn’t have much conversation and it wasn’t clear what the morning plan was (we would have liked to ascend again in the morning for sunrise but we ended up going straight down). The hike itself was beautiful, great weather and surprisingly comfortable shelter (porcelain toilet, thin mattresses, slippers to walk around the shelter with, shower but no hot water so we did not partake).

The accomodations both at the base at the pelican and the hut exceeded my expectations. The food at the pelican is amazing and features farm products from the property.

Malinche, Iztaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba, Climb the 3 highest peaks in Mexico, 8 days

The incredible human being known as Bernardo aka Bernie will be your guide for this once in a lifetime experience and I promise you it will be one of the best decisions you ever make! Myself and 2 other friends did this 8 day hiking tour and Bernie was the perfect guide - not only did he sort out 100% of the logistics for this trip (food, lodging, extra equipment that we didn't have, driving to and from each mountain, etc) he was extremely flexible when a couple of us got food poisoning (not his fault) and had to re-arrange certain dates. He knows the area really well and obviously can climb these mountains in his sleep so he was able to help us navigate any headaches or high altitude issues and he even ran to the store for us to pick up some paracetamol and pepto bismol one day. The mountains are difficult but the itinerary that Bernie has provided means you have the best possible chance at summiting all 3 peaks. Highly recommend this tour and thank you Bernie for an excellent experience in Mexico!

Mount Olympus, 3-day guided hiking tour in Greece

First off, wow. Words can't describe the experience that I had on that mountain. Dimitris literally changed my life. I've been an avid hiker for many years, but when I travel to a new country I like to have a guide at first to teach me the lay of the land. He went above and beyond to teach me. I learned how to use pulls, this alone is going to change my life. Ha I can't believe I've been hiking all this time and never used them. Secondly, I was very bummed that we couldn't summit due to weather, but he made it OK, with showing me more hikes and showing me trails that weren't crowded with tourists. I love local trails. Finally, I truly feel like I made a friend at the end of all this! He didn't make me feel like a paying customer, I had a grand time drinking at the refuge and hiking on that mountain. I will definitely come back to bag that peak in the summer time soon to come. Thank you!!!

Our guide communicated poorly. He requested to meet the day before the trek and then gave us no information and did not respond to our messages for the entire day (12 hours). When he finally responded late the night before the trek we were told to meet with another random person in a public square. The next morning we learned that we had a different guide and that we were on an 8 person tour, not the 2 person tour we had booked and paid extra for. The tour did not have enough food to feed all 8 of us. Our tents leaked in the rain. There were countless other issues. We contacted explore share with our complaints and received no response. This was easily the worst organized tour I have been on in my entire life.

The scenery is definitely worth the hike and Fabrice is a great guide and a pleasure to be with.

I trust him and I had the best experience of my life, hence I can highly recommend him.

The hike itself was spectacular- beautiful and diverse scenery with fields of wildflowers and thick forests and then alpine terrain. The communication before the trip and during was excellent. Domen adjusted the hike for our capacity and wishes, staying aware of how we were doing and thinking about alternatives. He knew every trail so well and shared his knowledge about nature and Slovenia. We learned a ton from him. He was such a wonderful guide and nice to hang out with. Thank you for a unforgettable start of our fantastic Slovenian holiday.

Salkantay, 4 Day Alternative Trek to Machu Picchu

We cannot begin to express our thanks for organizing our trip to Salkantay and Machu Picchu.  The trip was perfect.  Every transfer and tour went without a problem.  The hike was great and we even got perfect sunshine in Machu Picchu.  We are extremely tired from our hike to Machu Picchu but were very happy we got the chance to do that rather than HP based on what we heard from others along the way. You not only gave me what I asked for but also what I didn't know to ask for - including a lovely spot for lunch on the Sacred Valley tour and seats on the correct side of the train, when we traveled during daylight.  Thank you. And as for the trip, based on the famous words of our very enthusiastic tour guide at Machu Picchu.  Incredible, Fantastic, Gorgeous!

Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, 4 Day Guided Trek

I booked the 4 day Inca trail trek with this company. All round it was a pretty great experience. Food on the trip was simply amazing and our guide did everything he could to make our trip comfortable and enjoyable. Our group was 5, smaller than other companies, which was great on the trail. There were a couple of miscommunications between the office, but these were solved in the end and didn't create any major issues. I would book again with this company.

This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’

Inca trail, Machu Picchu, with an official operator in 2 days

We just returned home from a great holiday in Peru. The team of South America Planet has made this trip a big success. We have done the tour with 4 friends. Together with South America Planet we have set-up a tour where there was enough balance between visiting all the highlights in Peru and time to relax and visiting nice cities on our own pace. All agreed tours were delivered as planned with very experienced guides. On top of this we had a 24H emergency number from South America planet that we could call or reach via WhatsApp whenever it was needed. Thanks Warry for you support! Next to this we had regularly contact with Dirk who wanted to know if everything was OK. A dream holiday where we had the feeling there was really taken care about us. Our 2 Days incatrail trekking we never forget, amazing to see Machu Picchu from the sungate .We recommend South America Planet to everyone who wants to travel through South-America If there are people who wants to know more about this great trip, they can always contact us.

2-day Guided ascent of Mt. Fuji, Round trip from Tokyo (private)

This was a trip that was planned at the last minute -- I sent requests on a Friday morning of a long weekend for a climb on Saturday in the off-season. Yusuke was prompt in responding and then helped throughout in planning the trip from renting gear, to picking me up, to the actual climb, the meals in between, and finally the drop-off. He is friendly, a good communicator and very experienced. While allowing short breaks to take pictures he maintained a strong pace to stay on schedule. Overall, it was a great experience. I would recommend Yusuke to anyone thinking of a Mt. Fuji climb, even off-season. I was lucky to have this unplanned climb come together on such short notice, which was largely due to Yusuke responding and guiding me through the planning and climb. Explore-share is a good service, but should allow sharing of phone numbers on their platform before payment esp to be able to plan last-minute trips and so the customer can get comfortable with their guide and gain the confidence necessary before paying.

Scrambling in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park, Day trip from Madrid

Our guide was not Gabriel, but a subcontractor names Luis. He was great! (very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) and should have gotten 5 stars except that he arrived late to pick us up, and he said he would send pictures but didn't. Our scramble at La Pedriza was awesome! Explore Share should maybe get 3 1/2 stars, I found their description of this adventure not accurate. It said we would climb La Pedriza and Penalara (not possible in one day) and no experience was necessary. A beginner hiker would find this challenging, would have to turn back before the real adventure begins, and be disappointed. Scrambling requires an intermediate fitness level. And the picture shown with the advertisement isn't what we saw, no jagged peaks, no helmets, no ropes. All things considered it was still a great experience!

1-day Hiking Fenestre Lake and Pass in Mercantour National Park

We had an amazing trip, we wanted to explore the Mercantour region, reconnect with nature, and spend quality time as a couple. Fabrice understood the brief, was clear in his guidelines to prepare the trip, proposed different options, and, ultimately, adapted the hikes on a day to day basis based on the weather. For example, instead of having us hike all day in the mountains in pouring rain on the first day, he adapted the program and took us for a hike all around Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat along the riviera coast. The hikes were stunning, especially at this time of the year (fall) with amazing lights and colors. We highly recommend Fabrice as a guide, he is very knowledgeable on the fauna&flora, local history, on wolves. He also initiated us to some key principles of Nordic walking and mindful walking. Thanks Explore & Share team for connecting us. We definitely will do it again and recommend to friends.

Pyrenees day hike from Barcelona

I was a bit hesitate to book with explore-share as I have never heard of it and am a women traveling alone looking for a hike to do in another country. I am elated I booked with Pere on a full day hike in the Pyreneess. Pere was very nice, funny and professional- he had lots of info on history, culture and of course everything mountainside. He brought snacks and bought coffee which was unexpected but very appreciated- he provided transportation & had lots of extra gear too! He was very good at judging my skill level and pushed me just enough as far as pacing and trail difficulty. I am so lucky to have chosen Pere as a guide! Internally it was a physically and mentally challenging hike; I would not of made it to the top if I was alone. If anyone is hesitating on which guide to pick I would say to look no further and go with Pere. It was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona and will remember it for years to come when looking for extra motivation & momentum on my next hikes.

Mount Olympus, Greece 3 Day Guided Hiking Tour

I think that Zhivko is absolutely brilliant in his role: always providing professional insight and mental support. I am sure I would have never made it to the top had I not been assisted by an experienced guide. Zhivko was very mindful throughout the entire duration of the challenge - e.g. advising on proper way of stepping, breathing, clothing etc. I would like to emphasise not only his great knowledge of practicalities related to hiking and climbing, but also fantastic psychological and social skills, showing respect to both: the environment and fellow hikers/ climbers. I've received a feedback following the completion of my 'mission' which will surely help me in the future. It's apparent that Zhivko loves what he is doing for living and he does what he loves rather than simply earning money. Absolutely fabulous experience!

3-day hut-to-hut hike in the Julian Alps

We (me, my husband and two teenage sons) went on the 3-day hut to hut hike. The whole experience was exceptional. When planning our trip communication with Domen and Anja was always, prompt, friendly and informative. Our guide was Aljaz. He made sure we were comfortable and informed and having a great time. He was always positive and interesting and did a fantastic job of being there when we needed him and giving us space for family time too. He went out of his way to connect with my son, which made it an especially memorable experience for him. A certain level of fitness is required, they say this in the description - I wouldn't disregard this. I sort of thought I was fit but I had to push myself. That wasn't really hard though, because for inspiration all you have to do is look around; it's always beautiful - always, everywhere - from the time you step out of the van. And of course the challenge makes you feel like you've accomplished something. If you are considering this adventure, don't let anything stop you.

2-day Guided ascent of Mt. Fuji, Round trip from Tokyo (private)

I am not going to talk about summiting Mount Fuji, I 'll let you experience this first hand, but I'll tell you that it was an amazing experience which will stick in my memory forever. I will however praise Yuske, the guide, who is one of the most professional guides I have ever met. We agreed and did a one day preparation before on Komagatake where I learned to perform self arrest, practiced climbing with an ice axe and crampons and he has also a lot of other tips about the equipment. The climb was amazing and he always put safety first but in the same time being a very pleasant companion. He could easily become my friend if we where to live in the same country. He has a lot of years of experience and he knows Mount Fuji very well and would find the way probably in his sleep. I am saying this because we had performed the descent in a very dense fog (clouds) and we could barely see a few meters in front of us but he always knew the way. Climbing with him was a real pleasure and we talked a lot and he is a very interesting person. I would follow him on any mountain on this planet because I know he has a lot of experience, he is very professional and know a lot of secrets and not the least he is a very nice companion which you can trust. He also helped me with a lot of tips about my travel to Japan. I highly recommend him as your guide in Japan.

I have had an opportunity to take advantage of an brief weather opening to SkiMo Mt Fuji with Yusuke and enjoy some very skiable powder on the way down in spring snow conditions quite typical for the Alps. The pre-trip communication were spot on and Yusuke proved very efficient in monitoring the rapidly changing forecast to make the call whether we SkiMo up or just do an Alpine ascent. Even though the ascent doesn't present any technical challenges the rapidly changing weather might dictate that the 2000+ vm trip is taken in one day and thus a good pre-trip aclima would be essential. The first part thru the forest along the old pilgrims' trail is a regular approach hike, however upon entry of the high alpine terrain the gradient stiffens and good kick turns and crampon skills are essential to enjoy the amazing landscapes. The guide's choice to switch to bootpacking would generally appears a bit too early for European skiers as terrain could yield itself for at least 400 vm more of skins switchbacks but there was reason for the choice, and is generally down to personal preference. The way down if VERY varied snow conditions and requires a versatile skill set and appropriate speed management. During our trip there was no significant avalanche traps, however some of exposed terrain is prone to rock falls and thus should be negotiated at a prompt pace. Night over in a traditional Japanese mountain hut is a fantastic experience in its own right and not to be missed. If one ski toured in France, the hut would appear a luxury accommodation but is slightly below the comparables in Austria and Switzerland. Dinner and b'fast are served as traditional meals and provide more then sufficient cals of warm homemade food. A visit to the local shrine followed by a relaxing session at a near by Onsen is the cherry on the cake for the trip and is definitely recommended as a supplement to the trip. If I come to Ski Tour in Japan again would surely contact Yusuke for his availability.

Julian Alps and Triglav National Park 1-to-3-day treks

Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.

Trekking to Aconcagua “Confluencia” Base Camp, Day trip from Mendoza

I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Joaquin is an excellent guide, and will not only take you to you destination, but also teach you a lot about the geography and history around Aconcagua and the area around. The view of Aconcagua is better by the entrance to the park, but the trip up to Confluencia is worth the trouble if you are staying in Mendoza (or nearby, I travelled from Chile just for this hike). Depending on your fitness level, Joaquin can find a hike that will suit you and give you an experience of the Andes mountains that you wont get anywhere else.

Ascent to Cerro Toco – San Pedro de Atacama

The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.

Climbing Ben Nevis via the Ledge Route in a day, Scotland

I contacted Kirkhope mountaineering looking for a guide to take me along a more adventurous route up Ben Nevis. Scott responded to my voicemail very quickly and was able to talk me through the various options and offer guidance on difficulty, exposure etc and on the required equipment. This along with all the other communucation during the trip was courteous and efficient. All the guides are MIC qualified so you know you are getting the real deal. My guide was friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable which made me feel safe and confident throughout the whole trip. I throughly recommend Kirkwood mountaineering to anyone wanting a first class guiding experience. Excellent.

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

My trip to Olympus turned out to be a huge disappointment. Not only because we couldn't go to the summit due to bad weather (too much wind), more because the guide Akis lacked communication and social skills. We went with a big group (9). Akis is really a professional when it comes to hiking and knows what he's doing. But his communication in general and towards me I didn't like. I also want a guide that explains stuff about the nature, the mountain and a guide that brings some positive vibes. I didn't feel included at all and I felt like he didn't like me or something. Mostly talked in Greek language and I had to ask for translation a lot. Luckily the group I was with were really friendly and translated some things for me. Besides this he could have been more open that it's a big possibility we wouldn't go to the top because of the wind. That would've saved some disappointment. At the mountain shop before the hike someone told me there's going to be a lot of wind. After asking Akis about it on the way up he said "no, not much wind. The weather will be good" Which I found very strange but maybe this was the language barrier. I've spend 180 euro's for a trip with a guide + 80euro's to rent good gear + 40 euro's to stay at the refuge with food/drinks included. This is a total of 300,- for something I could've easily done by myself (the trip to the refuge is easy). Of course I totally understand that because of too much wind we couldn't go to the top. You can't beat the mountain, it beats you. But as a backup plan we went down and then by car to a small waterfall and a monastery thats being renovated. This crushed my soul and spirit. I strongly recommend that you get part of your money back if you can't reach te summit in stead of this somewhat boring backup plan with zero adrenaline. What was even more f'd up is that after I came back to the mountain shop to bring back my rented clothes I met a couple that did go to the summit. :( So to summarise, my experience was disappointing to say the least and won't recommend Akis as a guide. Service of explore-share is good tho. Cas

3-day climb to Mount Olympus, Greece

Good trip, but Babis did not allow for his perhaps unusual clients. He was too keen to do everything at super-fast speed, and get to the refuges early. A slower pace would have suited us better. Also he did not brief us adequately on what to expect, and give advice on facilities and rules of the refuges.

Communication was great before the event, too. I‘d recommend this company without hesitation and hope to hike with them again in the future.

Mercantour National Park, France, Guided Hiking Lakes Adventure

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Mercantour National Park. Fabrice was entertaining and knowledgeable, and helpful. He arranged for our pickup from our hotel at Nice, and even drove us to a village bakery to pack a Provençal sandwich for our picnic at the top of the mountains. Fabrice shared with us a lot of information about the place’s landscape, flora and fauna. And he also showed us how to spot the wildlife and take pictures of the animals. We learnt that he’s also an avid photographer and has extensive experience in nature photography. The highlight of our trip was reaching the crystal clear mountain lake, close to the top of the mountain range, where we also got to cross the border from France into Italy for our picnic. The only regret we have is not being able to spend more time in the park, as the hike took most of the day. We will definitely be interested in doing this again! Thanks for the arrangement!

3-day hut-to-hut hike in the Julian Alps

Our 3-day hike exceeded all of my expectations! It was well planned, along a challenging trail with spectacular scenery. Along the way we passed through alpine pastures and even got to same cheeses that were made right on the mountainside. We stayed in mountain huts both nights, where we were comfortable and well fed. Our guide was interesting and always made sure we were safe. Miha was easy to communicate with over email, always responding to messages quickly. I appreciated that we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. And the price of the trip was very affordable. I would love to do this hike again and would recommend it to everyone!

Guided Ascent of Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge

On short notice, while traveling through Scotland, we booked a Private Guide to Ben Nevis through Explore-Share.com.   We much enjoyed the climb to the summit with our Guide Stuart Mapp; Stuart was the consummate professional and his concern for both our safety and this experience cannot be understated.  His direct knowledge of Ben Nevis’s Route, History, Flora and Stories made this trip the highlight of our 17 days in Scotland and Ireland for us.  Our success to the summit, and back down, was directly supported by Stuart and made it very much more enjoyable .  Thank you again!

3-day hut-to-hut hike in the Julian Alps

This trip was unbelievable. The company itself did a wonderful job working hard to secure us accommodation at this time of year (most huts weren’t open yet). Although difficult at times due to the snow still on the mountain this early in the season (June 18th) our guide Aljaz expertly navigated us around the snow when possible and ensured our safety navigating through the snow when necessary. He completely customized our hiking experience to suit our level adding on extra mountain peaks when possible. He was better than I ever expected. The mountains themselves were gorgeous! I could not recommend this enough!

Our excursion with Fabrice was one of the highlights of our trip to France. He was extremely knowledgable about the area and the local history. He even went out of his way to take us to see some local orchids that were in bloom when he learned that we love orchids! We will definitely take another trip with him the next time we find ourselves in the area.

Guided Ascent of Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge

I usually do these things with my Husband, but we currently live in Singapore and I’m back visiting family and didn’t want to miss out. I was doubly anxious because our usual guide was unavailable, but Ken quickly put me at ease. For me that’s about feeling like I have all the information I need, being reassured that I’m making good time and having a few scheduled breaks for snacks etc. We also had a good chat, which made the walk in fly by. A very enjoyable day, I felt safe and comfortable throughout. I hope to be back in the future for more adventures.

I booked a four days trip with Alex to climb Tolima. Alex is a very experienced mountain guide and also very socialable. He knows to ask you the right questions to make your climb successfully and well organised. Unfortunately I got sick and had to break up at 3700 metres. Alex cared the rest of the time about me while I was recovering in the mountain hut and later in the hotel. Alex is also a great doctor not only a excellent mountain guide. Thx for taking care of me. See you soon, Felix

Guided Ascent of Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge

Private Guiding on the classic Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis North Face On two previous winter trips up Ben Nevis via the CMD route, I had marvelled at the majestic North Face and dreamt of fulfilling a route on it's flanks. This season, Ken helped me fulfil this dream by guiding me on the classic Tower Ridge (IV, 3). The whole experience was absolutely fantastic and Ken made sure to attend to every detail; from communications, equipment provision, weather and condition assessment and climbing advice on route. Ken's professionalism certainly enabled me to push my limits, as I felt completely safe within his guiding ability. I was fortunate to have moderate conditions on the day, and this enabled a fairly rapid and highly enjoyable ascent of the ridge in true Scottish conditions. I will definitely be back for more winter adventures

We did Nevado Tolima's South Face ascent from Ibagué. It was very good. Alex and the cook were professional and fit. The only thing was it was almost impossible to do it 3 days. 4 days would have been better and it would have been nice to know that before we started. But I really liked the trip. It was hard though.

Ascent to “Cerro Uran” and “Cerro Chirripo”

We spent three incredible days on the trail with Armin trekking to the summit of Cerro Chirrippo. His knowledge of the ecosystems we traversed provided our group great insight into the fauna, birds and animals of Costa Rica. Along the trail, conversation was easy given his many experiences throughout the world. The weather was perfect throughout the trip. The hut was more than adequate and the food was authentic Costa Rican. I would highly recommend any trip with Armin and we look forward to some type of adventure in the future.

Ascent to “Cerro Uran” and “Cerro Chirripo”

We made a self planned trip to Chile and Argentina to climb Volcan San Jose and Aconcagua. While we are fairly experienced climbers and mountaineers at lower elevations we had Armin as our guide for Aconcagua. He was our insurance for our lack of high altitude experience and organizer with the local support agency. It was a very nice experience. Armin for the most part let us run around on our own as we wanted and only reigned us in when he thought it appropriate. When he forced us to make a rest day in camp at about 5500m altitude to improve our acclimation we were not happy because we thought we were strong and wanted to continue. The photos of our faces in camp that rest day and the fact that I barely remember the day as I was falling asleep all the time tells me that he was very right and we needed rest. He did exactly what we wanted from him; protect us from our own enthusiasm and inexperience. Two days later we all reached the summit. It never felt like having a guide that was calling the shots but like traveling, trekking, and climbing with a very experienced friend. Thanks Armin, "pura vida"!


 

There are many reasons for choosing Hiking

There is no better therapy than spending a few hours or days in close contact with nature. You’ll leave feeling re-energized and less stressed.

 

More info about Hiking:

Hiking involves walking on trails or paths, generally across long distances. Although it does require a good fitness level, people of moderate fitness can generally practice hiking safely. From short, easy hikes of a few hours to long immersive treks of 20+ days, there is something for everyone. Take into account that “hiking” and “trekking” are sometimes used indistinctly. The term “backpacking” is also quite popular in the US to refer to multi-day trips
