Raphael (Raf) has been working in the mountains since the mid 1990's, initially as a ski instructor before pursuing mountaineering and becoming an IFMGA guide. Raf has a passion for guiding and instructing in mountains around the world. Based in Chamonix, France, Raf guides our European based trips and courses.
When he's not in the mountains Raf can be found pursuing his other loves, sailing and windsurfing.
"Rafael Bonnet was an excellent guide. He made our trip truly memorable. He was able to read our abilities and expand our skills."
"I felt that Raphael was extremely competent with a high level of knowledge. His calm nature was very reassuring. I trusted him completely with my life."
