Since ever I've been trying to combine my passions and to share it.
Being in nature has always been a need for me as well as feeling the way I could move in endlesses areas with my own power.
In the same time, my willingness to protect the nature for itself raised day after day.
During my studies, I invariably kept in mind the ambition to share my love of sport and nature as well as the eager to protect this nature.
Year after year, I chose my orientations to stick to those desires. I entered the french sport university and then the "Ecole Normale Supérieure" in Sport Sciences and Physical Education to learn all the sciences linked to sport and physical education.
From then on I developed step after step projects around outdoor recreation and environmental protection.
This lead me to complete a Master's Degree in Sustainable tourism and territorial dynamics.
The year after I began a PhD about oudoor recreation and environmental concerns, while teaching at university. During my research, I got more and more interested in sociology of innovation and management processes, which is essential when thinking of environmental concerns and outdoor activities.
After several years working in french universities, I felt the need to go out of those institutions to try to act more directly on the field. That's why I became consultant and mountain guide.
In the time the village I was living in, in the French Alps - La Grave la Meije - faced a major crisis, I decided to be even more locally committed and I became the headmaster of the local tourist office. The main access to the touristic remote village remained closed for a couple of years and we had to build up new strategies of coping.
In the same time I fell in love with the Westfjords in Iceland. I began to guide around the island and finally decided to settle in Flateyri.
Since then on, I've tried to share my love of this very special area of Iceland and to reconnect my professional activity to my everlasting desire of combining the share of ma passion of sport & nature as well as the preservation of natural environment.
I feel more than ever that environmental concerns should be seen as as many chances of innovating and developing renewed sources of creativity through the experiences we can live in nature, the body itself being the main medium.
“Le Monde des Elfes” er ferðaskrifstofa sem starfrækt er á Flateyri á Vestfjörðum.
Við skipuleggjum fjöldægra ferðir um fjöll og firði til að njóta útsýnis, óspilltra víðerna og vellíðunar - að vetri jafnt sem sumri. Við sérsníðum ferðir og sérhæfum okkur í litlum hópum (4 til 8 gestir).
Sem ástríðufullur hlaupahlaupari (önnur afrekaskrá á Vesturgatan Ultra - 45 km, 4:19:47), býð ég þér að fara í stuttar eða langar hlaup í fjörðum, milli fjalla og sjávar. Þú gætir kannað með því að hlaupa eða þjálfa erfiðara og fá ráð fyrir næsta hlaups verkefni.
Hjartað í þjónustu okkar er náin tenging við fólk, óspillta náttúru og samfélagið í litlu, íslensku sjávarþorpi.
Ég er fjallaleiðsögukona sem elskar Vestfirði. Ég mun því með mikilli ánægju leiðbeina þér við undirbúning ferðarinnar og aðstoða þig yfir fjöllin, firðina og um þorpin.
Við bjóðum einnig upp á dagsferðir þar sem við göngum eða förum á snjóþrúgum til að skoða náttúruna í kringum okkur, kynnumst jarðfræði svæðisins, fuglalífi, spendýrum, plöntum o.fl.
