The summer & fall 2020 Chamonix EXPERIENCE is back ! And not only am I proposing my classic Discover Walk & Mini-photoshoot but I'll also be introducing a new "awareness walk" which I'll call THE RENAISSANCE WALK. That's a special post-covid19 walk which you'll soon find on the calendar. So look for it if you already know Chamonix downtown. All my walks will include a mini-photoshoot that I'll do of you with your own smart-phone or camera. It's a chance to "get in the picture" and be part of the environnement. This makes for great stuff to share on your social network. The classic Discovery Walk is an"off-the beaten track" experience is designed to give you an exclusive peek of how people live in the mountains. Plus, I know just about everyone in town so encounters are likely. I welcome a maximum of 4 people on a walk. So it's like semi-private. The pace is easy-going. Please contact me ahead of time if you want to bring children so that we can adapt accordingly. If we've got the time, we'll stop for a refreshment near the end of the walk. Beverages are not included. This outdoor experience entails easy walking for about 3 hours. I'll be telling you how to prepare and dress according to the weather. My walks will follow safe sanitary guidelines so please don't forget to bring your mask or face protection for when social distancing can be a challenge.

I don't know about you but I'm ready for a change. After this COVID19 spring, we all deserve to be inspired and reconnect with our environnement and the people with whom we share this incredible alpine valley as well as our planet. Come with me and you'll discover the backstage of a traditional mountain life-style, a vibrant and historical downtown, confidential neighborhoods, hidden passage-ways, encounters with the locals. In other words : real life. I'm an American-born photo-journalist and professional rock-climber, and have lived in Chamonix for many years. I have lead individuals and groups all over Europe and the US. Skiing, hiking and climbing remain my passions. Photography my way of expressing it. I have been hosting my "awareness walks" since 2011. Bring your camera or smart-phone or just your curiosity. Looking forward
Regarding safety measures and masks: I will be bringing a mask for each participant. If however, all the participants on the…
I'll be showing you a Chamonix that you perhaps would never be able to find on your own during your short stay. I've spent most of my life here exploring the hidden corners of this valley in order to write and illustrate my book and magazine articles. Now it will be my pleasure to show you my own secret Chamonix. This unique and complex valley is also about people. So whenever possible, we'll meet and talk with the local inhabitants.
It is very important to be dressed according to the weather forecast at the moment. I'll inform you ahead of time what the weatherman has planned so that you'll know what to bring. In any occasion, please wear good-soled and water-proof walking shoes.
Designed for world-travelers who want to see more than what meets the eye. We'll discover iconic but also secret spots of Chamonix. If you already know Chamonix and want to discover something entirely new and different, the experience can be privatized and I can create an itinerary just for you.
