For more than half a century, I’ve been wandering the surface of the globe, from the Jura to the Alps, via the Pacific islands, the Rockies and the Andes. Nature invites us to be curious and inventive, while allowing us to be contemplative. The playground of my childhood, the Val d’Anniviers is a veritable paradise for hikers. I look forward to sharing it with you!
Who I am ?
As a young retiree, I welcome hiking and mountain lovers to discover the treasures of the Swiss Alps.
I grew up in Argentina, spent a few years in Bienne, then moved to Lausanne.
Trans-Siberian, Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, Rocky Mountains: I pace up and down before taking my sailboat license for the high seas.
Between feedings, I take part in several cross-country ski marathons and other competitions like Patrouilles des Glaciers.
Now that the kids can follow us, we’re off to the Mediterranean, as well as the USA and Canada.
To share my passion with you, I’m training in geology, botany, zoology, astronomy, safety and orientation. With a training certificate in my pocket, my career as a Mountain leader can finally begin in 2023.
In order to offer multi-day experiences to my customers, I renovated a floor of my grandfather’s chalet and transformed it into a comfortable lodge for hikers.
Taking the time for a day, or even more, means taking the time to discover new horizons. Close to home. Wherever we live in Switzerland. That’s our chance, and that of the travelers who stop here. The Jura and its spruce forests, the Pre-Alps from Montreux to Romanshorn or the Alps of Valais, Ticino and Graubünden are all within easy reach. Go light hiking with Mountain Hike!
Discovering nature in complete safety, this is what the training I’ve just completed enables me to do.
I’ve been exploring this magnificent valley since I was a child.
The location of this old chalet is said to be the most beautiful in the village. See for yourself!
I’m familiar with the Jura, the Pre-Alps and the Alps: I’ll be happy to tailor a program just for you!
Grimentz, its people and its environment have been familiar to me for half a century, whatever the season. It’s a unique place to recharge your batteries and I invite you to discover it.
When will you arrive?
