About us at Adventure Treks

When planning your trip you might like to know who you will be sharing your adventure with.
Here is some info about the Adventure Treks team.
Contact us if you'd like to know more.

Christine was originally a dancer of contemporary dance, and a dance teacher.

Chamonix was a revelation: the climbing, this vertical dancing, opened new horizons for her and she fell in love with the mountains and has lived in the valley since 1992.

Her hobbies are all mountaineering activities. She's been a trek leader since 2000 and has led trekking groups in India, Nepal, Morocco, Norway, Oman ... as well as throughout Europe.

She is very attentive with clients, and loves sharing her experiences and passions with them. Her other interests are TaiChi and yoga.

She has a son, MaŽl, born in 1986.
