I have been climbing with passion since the age of 14 when I started rock climbing, and (in my 20's) I became a full-time mountain guide. Even though climbing first began only as a hobby, it later led me to a professional Mountain Guide title.
I am a Greek certified Mountain Guide HFMC, and an IFMGA/UIAGM/IVBV Mountain Guide, which is the highest internationally recognized mountain guiding certification. I am also a board member of the Hellenic Mountain Guide Association and a member of the Austria Guides Association (section Vorarlberg).
I work together with a group of certified guides, so If I am not available to guide you, one of the experienced guides in my team will be your guide.
In the last 20 years, I have accomplished many expeditions all over the world from Denali in Alaska to Damavand Iran, climbing or guiding and skitouring.
I love the mountains as well as the sea. I'm a passionate sailor and a skipper, also organizing climbing and sailing trips in the Aegean Sea.
Now I am currently studying Marketing and Management at EAP University.
I live between my birthplace Litochoro, the village at the foot of Mt. Olympus Greece, and Chamonix France.
You can find me guiding between Mt. Olympus and Chamonix Mont-Blanc, ski touring the Haute Route in the Alps, to summiting Mt Elbrus in Caucasus or sailing and climbing on the Greek islands.
I love to work with groups in new destinations and make great pictures along the way.

Two day trip on Mt. Olympus on October 20/21, 2023, with Babis. Babis was an excellent guide. Local person, and very experienced and knowledgeable. Careful about assessing and managing any risks, and working to meet my expectations. Very well organized and fun to spend time with. Had a great time. Thanks!!
We had 3 amazing days with the guide Babis on the mountain. Being at Mt Olympus for the first time, we got see the things we wished for and at the right experience level as fitted us perfectly. Thanks a lot.
The trip up Mt Olympus was even better than we imagined it would be, and that was partly due to Babis being a great guide. He knows the mountain so well, it's almost as if he built it.
Première expérience d’ascension avec Babis et expérience réussie! Un guide au top, bienveillant et encourageant, qui a su faire avec le peu d’expérience que nous avions mon compagnon et moi. Prévenant, il nous a rendu visite la veille de l’ascension a l’hôtel pour les préparatifs. Il nous a motivé tout au long de la journée et grâce à lui on l’a fait! On recommande Babis à 100% 👌
Babis was an excellent guide. He is very experienced and did everything he could to make sure we had a great time. The weather and the conditions going up towards Scala were not that great, but it was a fun day either way. I would absolutely book another hike with Babis again.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
