Patagonia and Greenland expert
Arnaud de Leveleye
Born in Belgium and after a classic school curriculum concluded with studies in Geography, and originally becoming an air traffic controller, Arnaud could not resist the call of nature and its mountains any longer.
It was in 2010 that he decided to live his passion, and trade his radar screens for a life in the outdoors.
After having climbed the highest peak in every country in the American continent, while using his bicycle as a sole means of transportation, Arnaud ended his journey in Iceland, where he decided to rest his leathered buttocks and became a fully certified hard ice and alpine trekking guide through the Association of Icelandic Mountain guides.
His passion and his love for guiding have brought him across the four corners of the globe (Alaska, Canada, Africa, "forbidden" Tibet, Bhutan, Europe, NZ...), his mountaineering experience helped him to summit numerous mountains: Denali (Alaska), Logan (Canada), Aconcagua (Argentina), Ojos del Salado (Chile), Mont Blanc, (France), Kilimandjaro (Tanzania), Huascaran (Peru), Chimborazo (Ecuator),.... or to successfully cross the Greenland Icecap ( 30 days )
Name a mountain in South America, and there's a good chance Arnaud has trodden its summit or explored its flanks. Specialist in Patagonia, Iceland and Greenland, Arnaud's main concern is to "spread happiness". Generous, tireless, sometimes funny, always smiling, Arnaud will make sure you always eat something good before crawling into your sleeping bag ! Long after your return, you will still hear the echo of his unique mantra "I love my job", blowing serenely in the wind.
