Testimonials

"Our guide's sense of humour and relaxed nature made the expedition extremely enjoyable, with lots of laughs and great memories! He constantly ensured that we were acclimatizing safely and often ‘checked in’ on how we were feeling, physically, mentally and emotionally. He was able to meet me where I was at and allowed the liminal space for me to challenge myself – transformative stuff."
