About the guide

Mountain Leader

I have been in love with nature, hiking and orientation for more than 30 years. I like human contact very much and I truly enjoy what life offers us every day.

I’m an International Mountain Leader (IML) certified by UIMLA and I'm the President of UPMM (The Belgian Association Member of UIMLA). I used to work for the Belgian army as a Lieutenant-Colonel Commando-Paratrooper and I’m a member of the Belgian Alpine Club (CAB).

Together with my wife Didi, we organize hiking tours with a few donkeys that we own. Join us with your family or your friends, for a half-day, a full day or even several days. These hikes are unique and accessible to everyone.

It will be my great pleasure to guide you around some of the most beautiful spots in Belgium or in the mountains, all year around, hiking or snowshoeing. Please contact me via the programs I propose and let’s start planning together!

What people are saying about Alain



Journée en famille à tous points merveilleuse : activité adaptée à tout le monde, personne PMR et chiens de la famille plus ou moins sages... Dès l'accueil, nous avions compris que la balade s'annonçait au mieux. Alain et son épouse Didi sont didactiques, très relax tout en restant attentifs à chacun et s'adaptent parfaitement à leur public. Le pique-nique très soigneusement préparé par leurs soins était juste plus que parfait et savoureux. Nos petits-enfants, plein d'énergie, ont profité de chaque arrêt pour grimper, sauter, explorer, jouer à cache-cache, tout cela sous le regard bienveillant des adultes. Très belle expérience que nous recommandons sans hésiter !
