    What People are Saying about Aosta Mountain Guide-


    Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
