testimonials about Aurelie
As a child I had the chance of growing up in the mountains of Leysin, Switzerland and spent my time hiking and skiing.
After many years of working in the mountain guide office, I decided to turn my passion into my job and to become myself a tour leader. That was the best decision of my life. I am know a qualified mountain leader with the Association of Mountain Guides in Switzerland.
I will be delighted to let you discover the beauty of the mountain nature and the secrets of the healing flowers. I can transfer my passion in French, German, English and Italian.
Aurelie is an amazing trek leader. We connected so well talking about Switzerland in general. I especially enjoyed the short walk we did to the rock climbing spot after our day 1 trek. I look forward to hiking with her again. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!- Ramya, trek participant
Aurelie was absolutely wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to join her for another outing. She was knowledgeable, warm, fun and sensitive to the needs of all the group. I really appreciated her confidence on the mountains and also the choice of hikes. They were so beautiful and diverse and I felt that I really benefited from having a 'local' guide.

The 3-day trek in Zermatt was excellent. I have done a previous retreat with Ruta which was also amazing ; this time we had Aurélie as our outing leading who was also top! Aurélie is very experienced hiker who knows and loves the mountains. She adapted the pace to the group and everyone could follow easily. Hut food was absolutely amazing. Thank you Ruta and Aurélie for a well organized and fun trek which I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants to explore Zermatt. - Lily, trek participant
