Mountain Guide

Ever since I was born in 1977, I was motivated by a force of freedom. As an adolescent I sought to plunge deep into myself; to know and find myself. I found an answer in the wide open spaces, deserts, journeys and bike rides across thousands of kilometers that nature offers.

Nature is a way to connect with oneself, others and the 'rest'. Sharing these amazing experiences makes them so deep that they defy the very mountains, as we vibrate with a real and powerful energy. Through flora and fauna, through plain and summit: nature teaches and shows us the way.

I live at Jura Neuchâtel. I am married and a father of two small children. I have also been responsible for mountaineering camp and have received a "J + S" recognition (Youth and Sports). I will happily guide you across these mountains.

My only comments would be that this isn’t a beginner’s course . Levels of fitness and equipment needed should be in initial advertising
