International Mountain Leader (European Alps)
Julien has been hiking, mountaineering, skiing and climbing since he was young. After many years in development aid and humanitarian assistance he set up his own business to offer a friendly and flexible trekking service for those who want to spend more time in the wild.
Julien’s love of the outdoors is combined with a belief in the health and mental benefits of a good long walk.
Julien grew up in Paris and Burgundy before studying Geography and Political Science in Lyon. He then lived and worked across Asia, North America and the Middle East. From his many years in the international NGO and UN world, Julien has developed a very open and worldly view on life which manifests itself in an ability to get on with people from everywhere and anywhere.
There is a comforting calmness to Julien that comes from both is character and experiences. He knows the Alps very well, having spent much of his time there. He is a qualified UIMLA International Mountain Leader and a member of both the Swiss and French Mountain Leader Associations. He lives just outside Geneva.
