Adventure tourism is exciting. And what is best than to be properly prepared and informed for it? I planned a 2-day preparation course for adventure tourism, based in the beautiful Provence.

We will be in the heart of the Camargue Natural Regional Park. The environment is beautiful and ideal to prepare for adventure tourism.

Whether you are planning a future adventure on your own, with your family or with friends, this program is a perfect way to prepare for it. Then, you will be ready for a trek in the Atlas mountains, an easy expedition in the Andes or Himalaya, or whatever you are dreaming of!

You will learn about trekking, climbing, mountain biking, heliski and more disciplines. This will help you choose what to do on your next trip! We will also cover many other topics that you can check in the detailed program below.

I will teach you how to plan, organize and get proper guidance in future trips. This will give you the tools to turn your dream adventures into realities.

We will meet at Mas Montredon the evening before the start of the program, and use that evening to get to know each other. Mas Montredon is a charming small guest house and it will be our base during these days. We will be near Arles and L’Etang de Vaccarès.

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I come from Marseille and I found my passion for mountaineering very early, climbing Les Calanques, some mountains in the Verdon region and in the Alps. I got my IFMGA (mountain guide) certificate in 1983 and my ski instructor license in 1985.
I brought my clients on many summits of the Alps and went abroad to discover the world. I went skiing, climbing, mountaineering… in Morocco, Norway, Algeria (Hoggar), Yosemite (El Capitan) and Nepal. I discovered this passion for travelling and started to organize my first trips with my clients. In the late 80’, I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary and I did several ascents in Peru (Pisco, Yanapatcha and Huascaran). In the 90’, I did several trips in Nepal (Helambu, Langtang…).
I then kept on and further explored the world with my clients: Rolwaling traverse (Perchamo, Mera Peak Mingbo La), the summits of Yala Peak and the Yana Kanga, Patagonia (in Argentina), Manaslu tour in Nepal, Meso Kanto La, Mustang, Atacama desert in chili and many others.
I like bringing my clients mountaineering in summer and ski touring / heliskiing in winter.
Get in touch with me and let's discuss about your next guiding tour !
