The European alps must have some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Massive snow-capped mountains, large glaciers, fantastic flower filled meadows, and old alpine villages; you get to see it all when trekking in the Alps.
I live in Courchevel in the French Alps with my wife and son of 10 years, and when Iâ€™m not leading tours I teach people how to ski. Aside from walking and skiing, I enjoy cycling and rock climbing. As an international mountain leader, working for explore allows me to work in the mountains I love and get paid for it at the same time â€“ itâ€™s a fantastic position to be in.
Before coming on tour, donâ€™t forget to pack sun cream and a water proof jacket as the European Alps have a fantastic range of weather. Make sure that you just bring the essential items though â€“ the less you carry, the easier your experience!
