Xavi (Terrassa, Catalonia, 1963). Actually I’m living in Prullans.
During several years I have been practicing my two big passions, mountaineering and photography as hobbies. Actually I’m a High Mountain Guide and photographer in outdoor BTT races, mountaineering marathons or climbing competitions.
In 1982 I did became a member of Servei General d'Informació de Muntanya, a specialized mountain library. And from 1998 I’m working as High Mountain Guide for NKBV (Alpine dutch team).
After working 6 winters as a lifeguard patrol in a Catalan ski resort, I spent a few seasons of the southern summer working as a High Mountain Guide for Azimut 360 and Chilemontaña, two agencies located in Chile, leading clients through the Patagonia and into America's highest peak, the Aconcagua.
Since 2005 I lead my own clients around the world as a freelancer Mountain Guide. From September 2007 I manage the Companhia de Guies de Montanha web, bound to Carros de Foc. I have take part in many expeditions to Andes in South America and Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush in Asia.
I’ll like to show you “my” mountains, “my” Pyrenees and of course, other mountains around the world. I’ll like to guide you till de top of Aconcagua, Ararat, skiing down from Elbrus, or Kola’s peninsula in Russia.
I propose here few activities, but not all what I can show you!
Contact with me and go together to your dream!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
