What you'll do

The winter 2020/2021 Chamonix Discover Walk & Mini-photoshoot EXPERIENCE is back ! But this winter, I will be proposing the walk on a SEMI-PRIVATE basis. Thus adapting it to the COVID 19 era with all the necessary precautions to make it safe for you and your family and friends. I welcome a maximum of 3 people on a walk. So it is truly a semi-private affair.
If you want to come as a family of more than two people, then contact me so that I can arrange the reservation to suit you.
All my walks will INCLUDE a mini-photoshoot that I'll do of YOU with YOUR own smart-phone or camera. It's a chance to "get in the picture" and be part of the environnement. This makes for great images to share on your social network.
This popular "off-the beaten track" experience is designed to give you an exclusive peek of how people live in the mountains. We visit hidden neighborhoods plus some of the more confidential corners of downtown Chamonix.
The pace is easy-going and we should plan on about 3 hours.
If you are a couple or same household family, the itinerary can be adapted to your specific desires and physical walking abilities. Or if you are already familiar with Chamonix, we can discover another part of the valley.
Please don't forget to bring your mask for when social distancing can be a challenging

I don't know about you but I'm ready for a change. After this COVID19 year, we all deserve to be inspired and reconnect with our environnement and the people with whom we share this incredible alpine valley as well as our planet. Come with me and you'll discover the backstage of a traditional mountain life-style, a vibrant and historical downtown, confidential neighborhoods, hidden passage-ways, encounters with the locals. In other words : real life.
I'm an American-born photo-journalist and professional rock-climber, and have lived in Chamonix for many years. I have lead individuals and groups all over Europe and the US. Skiing, hiking and climbing remain my passions. Photography my way of expressing it. I have been hosting my "awareness walks" since 2011. Bring your camera or smart-phone or just your curiosity. Looking forward

Where you'll be

I'll be showing you a Chamonix that you perhaps would never be able to find on your own during your short stay. I've spent most of my life here exploring the hidden corners of this valley in order to write and illustrate my book and magazine articles. Now it will be my pleasure to show you my own secret Chamonix. This unique and complex valley is also about people. So whenever possible, we'll meet and talk with the local inhabitants.

Walk with Teresa was amazing. We went to some untouched places and she explaining about the places. She took very good photographs and gave some tips to me. She helped to book the ski instructor, equipments on rent and made me ready for ski :) Thank you so much for the great tour, helps and advices. I would like go for another trip with her.

Très bon tour photographique. Teresa est très douée dans le domaine de la photo, mais aussi très accueillante et elle connaît des beaux endroits au-delà des choses touristiques. Je vous conseille cette activité.

I didn’t know what to expect on the walk but Teresa was very knowledgeable about Chamonix and all of the neighborhoods and took me to a beautiful spot where she took photos of me in yoga poses and walking in the forest which will be a lovely addition to my social media pages.

Things to know

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 12 and up can attend.

What to bring

It is very important to be dressed according to the weather forecast at the moment. I'll inform you ahead of time what the weatherman has planned so that you'll know what to bring. In any occasion, please wear good-soled and water-proof walking shoes.

You may be used to walking with walking poles. That is entirely up to you. Poles can certainly come in handy whenever we are on country paths, dry or wet. If you don't own poles, they can be rented in town.
