Who am I?
Hi! I'm Gareth, a fully qualified International Mountain Leader with a background in translation and language teaching (Spanish and English). I have spent my life exploring the mountains of Europe, Africa, Asia and South America on foot and by bike and now I take people on mountain treks in both summer and winter.
Originally from the UK, I am now settled at the foot of the Central Pyrenees in Argelès-Gazost. I have also had the good fortune to have lived for long periods in Northern Spain, the Highlands of Scotland and central France, giving me a good knowledge of many of Western Europe's most attractive mountain ranges. I love to share my experiences with others and can help you learn more about geology, wildlife, language, local customs and history. I take clients who contact me directly, as well as working in collaboration with local trekking companies such as La Balaguère. When not guiding you can often find me roaming the mountains in search of new ideas and challenges, or cycling up the many cols surrounding Argelès-Gazost.
