More comfortable in trail shoes or climbing shoes than in stiletto heels, I have been in love with nature since a very young age. Mountain guide and photographer I take pleasure in traveling the mountain throughout the year with a particular preference for hiking away from the crowds! Mom of little Lou, I can't wait to go on an adventure with my family.
„Work less to ski more!“ that's my motto... Mountain guide and photographer, I enjoy being in the mountains as often as possible throughout the year, whether skiing, mountain biking, hiking or climbing. For me, nothing is more beautiful than sharing a bivouac with my darling or my friends, enjoying a sunset and sharing a good meal with your head in the stars! The pleasure of discovery remains the most important, enjoy!
Founder of thru-hiking.com and an enthusiastic hiker. You can wake him up for the most beautiful trails, preferably in the mountains or desolated areas. Walked the Annapurna Circuit, Fishermen's Trail and various hut to hut trails in the European Alps. Is currently preparing for the Slovenian Mountain Trail which he plans to hike in 2022. Works at the NKBV (Dutch Mountaineering Association) and writes for thru-hiking.com or hits the trails.
I love alpine sports where helmets are mandatory. Be it on the rock with two climbing slippers, on the via ferrata with two carabiners, in the ice with two 12-pin-crampons, in the snow with two skis or on the mountain bike with two rough tires. One hand is always free for camera and microphone. As a travel and outdoor journalist, I manage to combine work and adventure perfectly. My "workplace" is outdoors in nature for about four months of the year. And high peaks outside of Europe - be it in the Himalayas or in South America - attract me magically. „Work like others go on vacation“: My slogan of life!
We are Jannik and Thomas, and together we are Trekkinglife! At Trekkinglife, it is all about trekking and hiking adventures, but most importantly, having a great time in nature. This can be on a long distance trail in Germany, a roadtrip through Scandinavia, or an outdoor week in the Alps. We try to combine the best of two worlds, and that’s why we call ourselves „Body“ (Jannik) and „Brain“ (Thomas). You will understand when you follow our adventures. But when it comes to a cold beer after a long and active day, we are all the same and enjoy it likewise!

I am from the heart of the Sunnmøre Alps. I basically love the outdoors and the mountains. Definitely ski touring is my favorite activity. I rather carry some extra weight and have only one awesome decent. I really like sleeping in a tent and try to do it as much as time allows me. And when you have great backpacks as the Gregory «big bastard» aka Baltoro 100 Pro (or was it the other way around?) it is for sure no problem and you can throw in some extra kilos in form of a box of red wine. Have a smooth outdoor experience wherever you go!
Growing up on the rugged west coast of New Zealand, Ryan’s passion for the outdoors started at a young age. That has since grown into a love for mountains and he has been fortunate enough to base his life around climbing. His ideal day outdoors would start by going into the mountains to climb with a good friend, becoming scared and questioning why he put himself in this situation, somehow getting to the top of the mountain, high fiving, and then heading back to camp for a beer.
I am a freediving girl. This is what drives me to explore the world and travel. However hiking and long-distance treks are something that makes me go crazy too! I trekked Annapurna Circuit, Caucasus, Daxue Shan in China and the best of it - Andes, discovering ancient Incas cities and trails. I hitchhiked both islands of New Zealand, I camped wild at the remote Tonga beaches of South Pacific. I felt small yet privileged surrounded by the great volcanoes of Atacama. All this with super resistant Deva 60l backpack. I do yoga for keeping my mind and body balanced. Still looking for new destinations and adventure goals.
I am freespirit video and photo visual creator. I travel, I hike, I ski, I freedive. I love adventures, exploration and wildlife watching. I share all my passions with my wife Kate and I think this is the best what I’ve been gifted so far. Through the years I gained experience in all aspects of my multi-skilled profession. I come from Poland where I currently live and work as a video producer working both as a production manager and filmmaker/camera operator. I love what I do. For long distance treks my backpack of choice is Gregory Baltoro.
What started back in 2009 as a group of like-minded friends, thirsty for exotic adventures and exploration, in 2021 finally turned into a company offering alpine tours in Switzerland and expeditions abroad for commercial purposes, thoroughly developed. From hiking through Greenland to trying to build the highest igloo on earth, the "big boy" Baltoro has always been on our side (now with a couple of holes here and there, but that's what you get if you put your crampons inside, right?). If you happen to be in Switzerland and are looking for a unique adventure, feel free to shout out to us - let's GO remote places together!
Passionate skier and climber who eventually found myself home in the mountains after years of traveling. Left Sweden and the office-work for a mountain life in Engelberg, Switzerland. Founder of a mountain community and agency called @systraribergen, that strives to bring (especially) women together in the mountains without any prestige. I believe in connection to nature and ourselves. Love to share the adventure and guide people to explore our beautiful nature and help them become a stronger version of themselves.
Mountains are my playground, no matter if it's winter or summer that's what I call home. I am a snowboard instructor and I founded my snowboard school, HAPPY MOUNTAIN in the Italian Alps. The motto is " do more of what makes you happy " and that's how I teach my clients to enjoy this sport. The main goal is to always have fun respecting the mountain and to always be aware of our limits. The only element that can replace my frozen water is the ocean, my heart booms when I go surfing and catch some mellow waves, that's how my mind brings me back to my powder turns :).
Jakub is into outdoor photography and bushcraft. Since childhood, he has loved hiking in the mountains, camping, and forest camping. Currently, he enjoys sharing his adventures with others. With passion, he combines his interests and creates wonderful photographs and films that capture the beauty and wilderness of nature. He is not only an avid photographer but also an explorer and adventurer who is not afraid to step out of his comfort zone and discover new places, as well as test new technologies and equipment. His motto is: "The beauty of a place is just around the corner - you don't have to travel thousands of kilometers to find that special place for you."
On a daily basis I am a white collars worker who earns in the city but spends money in the countryside, traveling close to nature. A few years ago, I discovered that nature is my "medicine". I love to travel the most where the wheels will take, my 4x4 car, called Dragon with a tent on the roof. For the love of spending time close to nature, I visit places outside the beaten trails, spend the night in a tent, I search for houses for rent located in a remote area and cook under the cloud. I share my experiences on Nature Lovers profile in social media.
During all these many years of experiences, expedition trips and crazy climbs, I've always had by my side the same material, the one I fully trust and that I know that won’t leave me with a technical issue. That's why me and my back have been beyond grateful to Gregory’s family. For the hellish approaches to the rock with more than forty killograms that turned out a bit more kind with Gregory backpacks, for me one of the best brands in the world! Happy to be joining this family :)
