About the guide

guide profile img

My name is Fiona and I am a member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM) and a UIMLA-certified Mountain Leader.

I was born near Barcelona. At at the age of seven, I discovered that my natural and most comfortable environment was the vertical world of the mountains. My parents supported my early passion for climbing and I have never stopped exploring new heights ever since. I spent my adolescence in Alt Urgell, near the Pyrenees, and started at the age of 19 the Mountain Guide course in Val d'Aran, Spain, where I specialized my mountain skiing and alpinism techniques.

I also enrolled myself in the forest rangers in Pont de Suert (Spain), an experience that allowed me to live in direct contact with nature, to train in skiing and ice climbing during winter time and to perfect my climbing techniques.

Today I live in the Val d'Aran, where I work as a mountain guide and lead groups in the nearby Val d'Aran. During summer, you can find me in the Chamonix Valley, where I work in collaboration with the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix.

I have been part of the Women Alpinism Group of Catalonia (Grupo Feminino de Tecnificacion de Alpinismo de Catalunya) and of the National Team of Alpinism. These positions exposed me to professional mountaneering experiences and high-level competitions, such as the World Alpinism Championship that took place in Ukraine and where together with my team we conquered the 4th position. Today I continue my formation to become a Mountain Guide.
