What people say about
my guided trips

“Julia’s enthusiasm, knowledge and leadership skills guarantee that those in her company will not only have a wonderful time but feel they are in very safe hands.

She has the ability to encourage people to gently step outside their comfort zones, which means that the memories created will last forever.

Although Julia has complete control, her leadership style is such that people aren’t really aware that they’re being led.”

Lesley from London

“I have walked with Julia in many different locations, in all weathers in the UK and in Chamonix – and with my fitness at varying levels too.

She is both great company and a knowledgeable and experienced guide. I would trust her to take me anywhere – if Julia says that it is OK, it will be. If Julia says that I can do it, I know I will.

There is a Peruvian proverb that makes me smile and think of Julia coaxing me up a hill… Poco a poco se anda lejos (Little by little one walks far) Or as Julia says: ‘Little Steps, Little Steps…”

Lucy from Birmingham

Snowshoes – older than the wheel

Snowshoes – older than the wheel

Fancy that, as a means of getting about, the snowshoe was invented before the wheel (c. 3,500 BC) and probably before the ski (c. 5,000 BC) . By looking at those old cave drawings and other clever archaeological trickery, evidence of snowshoes has been found in...
