Marc Sonnet




Mountain Leader- Neffes, Gap



My love for the mountains, which provide me a sense of freedom, led me to leave my home town to settle in the Hautes Alpes. Born in 1967, I am married and the father of 3 girls.

I hold a Sports Educator Certificate since 1999, a State Mountaineering Diploma and a Mountain Leader Certificate since 2000. I’m also a Mountain Rescuer since 2001.

I have been practicing mountain activities for many years and this experience allows me to guide you in a mountain environment in complete safety. I think of myself as a mountain artisan and believe that adapting and customizing each outing according to the group and their desires is key to providing a great experience.

My passion for the mountains and my experience as a teacher help me share my knowledge with you in a way that will allow you to take full advantage of the experience. Nature takes us back to basics and time spent in nature is fundamental in this high-tech world.

My job allows me to get to know people from very different backgrounds. I find this very enriching and I do my best to adapt to each one of them. I also love that my profession allows me to exercise and be in contact with nature. This is key to my well-being!

The Southern Alps are my favorite place in the world and I have been exploring them for many years. I enjoy their diversity — from the Provence to the 4-thousanders, and from its lakes to its cliffs and glaciers. The mild Mediterranean weather is the cherry on the cake!

Our six days with Marc was a highlight of our 8 weeks in Europe. Marc is very knowledgeable of the greater Ecrins area. We snowshoed locations we could have never visited without local know-how and Marc's expertise. Very flexible with the itinerary to match conditions and client capability and preferences.
