Mountain Guide

Former ski resort manager, my passion for mountain wilderness has led me to become a Guide 20 years ago. Since then, I have had the same pleasure guiding to iconic summits. As La Bérarde Guides' office President, Les Ecrins are among my favorite destinations for skiing, climbing and moutaineering all year around.

I will enjoy very much guiding you in a matter of discovery, pedagogy and security on the highest summits in the Alpes. Look forward to meeting you !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
