I've been a guide for 15 years, travelling around mountains all over the world guiding and participating in expeditions.
I like guiding trekking and hiking, and I am also canyoning guide and specialist. Nowadays I teach in Madrid's guiding school.
Some of my favourites trips are Tour del Mont Blanc, Senda Camille (Pyrenees), Tour del Cervino, Tour del Monte Rosa and Tour del Aneto.
