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

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.

Saorge perched village hiking, in French Riviera, Southern Alps

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.

Saorge perched village hiking, in French Riviera, Southern Alps

Fabrice is a first-class guide! Taking into account last-minute weather changes and after assessing our fitness, he quickly customised an exciting itinerary that led us from the Préalpes to the beautiful hilltop villages of Gourdon, Tourettes-sur-Loup and Saint-Paul-de-Vence. 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.

Half-Day Hike of the Eze Circuit in Southern France

Richard delivered exactly what I was hoping for. The choice of route suited me perfectly; he fitted in with my timelines which was important to me and the cherry on top was that he was a delight to walk with and chat to for 3 hours. If I was here a little longer, I’d do another one and definitely will when I come back. Thank you ☺️

This was our second hike with Fabric who is a great guide. He was born and raised in the area and is completely knowledgeable about the nature and history of the coastal cities and the park. The day that we hiked, was cloudy and cool at the higher elevations so he selected alternate routes that provided us with spectacular views of the mountain valleys that make up the park as well as a tour of Sospel a fascinating village that was part of the salt trade. The scenery is definitely worth the hike and Fabrice is a great guide and a pleasure to be with.

Mont Blanc 5-day hiking tour (TMB)

I don’t usually write reviews, but I gladly do for this trip because it was fantastic! Great guide, fantastic tour! The accommodation is really basic, that is just something to be aware of. The only point to not give a 5 star trip rating is the fact that the group size being twice as large as was promised, it made for a 14 person mixed dormitory the first night- and thus no sleep.

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.

We spent a day hiking with guide Fabrice in Mecantaur Park. It was a great hike with different levels of difficulty. We rested at the lake at around 2000 meters and then made our way to the mountain pass high above. We were rewarded with a lot of wildlife sightings and even a patch of snow in August. Patrice was great and gave us a lot of information about the area and the flora and fauna. He was also great at pointing out historical events that took place in the area in the past.

They definitely keep warm memories of their first hiking and overnight experience in the Alps. We highly recommend all families to experience this type of hike with Aurélie. Thank you very much! LH

Aurélie a été top avec les 3 enfants, et a été plus qu’attentive. Elle avait prévu quelques points de découvertes spécifiques et quelques outils pour expliquer la montagne. Elle nous a permis de les tenir motivés et intéressés tout au ont de la promenade, et suivre un chemin que nous n’aurions pas pu prendre seuls avec les trois enfants. C’était une vraie plus-value de l’avoir… Elle a un feeling particulier pour les enfants, et nous la recommandons à tous ceux qui veulent tenter l’expérience en famille!

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

10 day / 9 night Full TMB Tour Congratulations, you found it! The best TMB trekking operator in all the land! No seriously, book it now! My time with Happy Tracks was absolutely exceptional and I wouldn’t hesitate to book another trek through this company or recommend it to all my family & friends. From pick up to drop off - everything was meticulously taken care of by Anja & Raphael. We were treated to delicious homemade food, fantastic lodging, and off-the-beaten-path adventures every single day. Our guide Dave was fantastic - quite literally a world-class guide. His expertise & character made for a super fun (and super safe) holiday. He went above and beyond to have us taste local delicacies and see parts of the TMB that would be easily missed by the average hiker. The TMB is a challenging hike, but the support of the Happy Tracks team made it one of my most cherished memories. Well done guys! Hope to trek with you again sometime!!

He also organized hotel transportation and a lovely picnic. He was very knowledgeable about local history. We are so glad that we were able to get off the beaten path and see something truly special.

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

We are a group of 5 people from Hong Kong and booked a 10 trekking days + 1 rest day TMB Private Tour from Happy Tracks. We searched around a few companies which offer private tours in parallel but Raphael from Happy Tracks replied the quickest with the details we needed. We had a nice impression from them already. We chose to stay at hotels as much as possible instead of refuges and we were very satisfied about their arrangements, it felt good to relax and recharge in hotels after a whole-day trekking. Our guide, Dave, is a very experienced, resourceful, knowledgeable gentleman with a sense of humor. Dave gave us a very accurate weather forecast which prepared us mentally and physically and adjusted our route according to weather condition. Occasionally, we were off TMB route which became highlight of the day. The homemade lunch prepared by Rachel is definitely a bonus. They were in great varieties, delicious, and even including desserts! (we thought we would have dry sandwiches only for everyday). We would recommend everyone to book with Happy Tracks for TMB Tour if you would like a stress-free planning for the tour with good value for money.

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

We have hiked many places in the world--Kilimanjaro, Peru, the Himalayas, the Nepali coast, Yosemite, Mt. Whitney, the Sierras----and the Swiss Alps rival each of those with their own unique beauty! Raphael, the Happy Tracks owner, responded to all of our emails and requests promptly and thoroughly and worked diligently to solve issues as they arose, such as an injured guide and fellow trekkers who needed some route changes. The accommodations along the Haute Route were excellent--ranging from dormitory-style, to camping lodges, to beautiful hotels. Meals were typically great (even had rabbit one night, duck the next, and nothing beat the gourmet meal Anja prepared at the Le Peuty Refuge!). Our guide, Wendy, was likewise excellent and attentive and we learned a lot about Swiss flora and fauna along the way. The Haute Route is strenuous in terms of being able to hike long days, with very steep and long periods of ascent and descent (the Swiss are not big on switchbacks) and needing to have no fear of heights (luckily we both do not have that issue) because you need to be willing to walk along steep, exposed ledges (and not always with a cable). It was also helpful that we both had at least some bouldering and scrambling experience; conditions along this trail are subject to erosion and major detours due to the many landslides, rockslides, and avalanches. All that said, Wendy guided us through calmly and we were rewarded by incredible views and experiences. Can highly recommend Happy Tracks!

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!

Mont Blanc 10-day guided hiking tour

Raphael and Anja did an amazing part with our group that had a lot of moving parts - which only got more complicated as the trip progressed. Their support didn't end until we left the country. We had two people joining us part way through the trek. Their flight was delayed getting out of the U.S. and Raphael had everything rebooked so that it was seamless when they landed. One of our members was sick and Raphael was readily available on WhatsApp to help us navigate a transfer. Our accommodations were wonderful and luggage transfer was perfect (and when they were stuck in traffic we got a text advising us they'd be late). Raphael showed up in person for a map review the night before we started hiking - and we met Anja along the way. What a dynamic duo. We can't wait to start planning our next adventure with them at the helm!

Our group consisted of mostly 55-65 aged individuals, and we requested private lodging for the trip. The logistics were perfect, with assistance from Geneva to Chamonix. Our guides, Raphael and Jack, always looked out for our safety during snow and water crossings, and provided for our comfort throughout the hikes. Our evenings were excellent and the meals at local hotels and restaurants were excellent. I highly recommend Happy Tracks for their skill, preparation and planning, and friendliness.

Overall it is a great way to see the surroundings. I would definitely recommend Fabrice as a guide for your next hike!
