Bringing the great outdoors inside.


There is no better way to explore, experience and photograph natural landscapes than on trekking or hiking tours. Over the past years, I have done single- and multi-day tours on foot, bike and canoe. Here you can find detailed information for some selected journeys. I also provide some photographic impressions that hopefully inspire you to enjoy the 'great outdoors' by yourself.

After gazing at the sky for some time, I came to the conclusion that such beauty had been reserved for remote and dangerous places, and that nature has good reasons for demanding special sacrifices from those who dare to contemplate it.
