Description

Would you like to know how to navigate across natural places? This introduction to orienteering is what you are looking for. If you don’t have any previous experience, this program near Verbier is perfect for you!

Live a full day of adventures, from learning how to navigate using a compass, to topographic map reading. So, you can learn how to find your way through mountains and different type of terrains.

Orienteering encompasses all those sports which require navigational skills. Therefore, you’ll learn how to get from one point to another, even through unfamiliar terrain.

Furthermore, the program is available all year round. Thus, you can practice during spring, summer or autumn on trekking paths. Or you can learn how to move around venturing off tracks during the winter. Each season has its own charm and challenges. For example, if you decide to join me during winter, I’ll teach you how to properly use snowshoes. And you’ll practice how to find trails that are not so easy to spot due to the snow.

Every morning we’ll go over the theory of card reading and using a compass on a map. Then, during the afternoon, we’ll put to test all our new skills on the field.

If you wish to join this unique experience, don’t hesitate and send me a request. Let me share with you my passion for nature, so you can later explore on your own.

About the guide

-Sarah

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

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.
