A super mountain guide who can guide you around the mountains safely. Olle, her dog was very welcoming to my dog too when we both joined for a Thursday morning hike. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice way to spend time in nature

Famke and her dog Olle are great companions to explore the Swiss mountains. On top of being very professional and knowledgeable, she is a very nice person! Highly recommended!

Famke is a very well prepared guide, who adjust the trip / tour to the level and condition of her guests. She is a pleasant company with a no-nonsense attitude and her very sweet and tough dog, Olle is really an addition to the company .

Besides a nice hike through a fantastic environment, you can have good conversations, or just enjoy the silence and maybe (as in our case) encounter a gems or deer!

Last Thursday I went on a wonderful snowshoeing hike with Famke & Olle in the beautiful mountain of the Jura! It was my first time on snowshoes and I loved it, walking with such ease over the snow covered paths. It was also my first time in the Jura and Famke told us a lot of interesting details about the geology, the flora and fauna To top it off, we were served hot tea and homemade muffins when we actually reached the top – with amazing views on Lac Leman and the Mont Blanc Please join Famke and her super sweet dog Olle on one of her weekly hikes – every Thursday morning – or book a custom made hike with this lovely, enthusiastic and energetic (certified) mountain guide

Hiking is about you, nature and hopefully someone else who loves being out as much as you do. Famke loves what she does… and you can tell. I would recommend hiking with her to anyone who’s interested in connecting with the overwhelming beauty of nature. Also… hiking is just a great way of meeting nice people.

Thanks a lot Famke!

See you soon!

Thanks to Famke, we had a fantastic hike in the snow. We even saw our favourite mountain goat, the Chamois!

About the Tour des Muverans : An epic experience and very nice to share this with Famke and the other participants. We’ve created unforgettable memories.

Famke brings you to place you would never have found yourself. She is a guide who plots out a track which suits to your level and interests. I will recommend all my guests to book a trip with her to get the most of their stay in the Alps.

This summer, we took our 2 sons for their first real mountain hike. Our sons (8 and 10) turned out to be naturals and kept running out ahead of us. That was followed by a bit of climbing; fortunately, there were chains that we could hold on to to pull ourselves up.

At the top of the mountain, with its impressive view of the Mont Blanc on one side and Lake Geneva and the Jura Mountains on the other, we enjoyed our picnic! (It’s amazing how delicious a simple cheese sandwich and a bottle of water can be…)

Plans for the summer

Without Famke we would never have dared do this, but we’re so glad we did! Our kids are still talking about it, and we will definitely be going back for another beautiful mountain hike with Famke and her dog Olle.

We might even choose a hut-to-hut tour this year!

Last autumn, we went out on a 3-day hike in the French Alps with Famke (and Olle). On the first day, we looked for chanterelles that we used to make a delicious pasta later that evening.

Alpine Ibex

The second day, we went to a different part of the valley, where we saw whole herds of ibex from up close. Very cool! And on the last day, we went for a mountain hike with a gorgeous view of Lake Geneva. Famke takes you places that you would never find on your own. We highly recommend going mountain hiking with Famke!

huttentocht

Last summer, Famke and Olle took me on a trek of discovery. My first steps in the mountains followed the Tour des Muverans. It was a magnificent trek with a different landscape every day, and Famke guided me along the most beautiful paths and to the best huts. With a combination of knowledge, wisdom, and humour, she taught me the basics of being in the mountains.

It was wonderful! Thank you, Fam, I’m already planning my next trip!

We love mountain hiking, but teenagers have to break through a barrier before they learn to appreciate it. This summer, Famke took us and our three children (our 14-year-old twin daughters and 16-year-old son) on a number of beautiful mountain hikes. The great thing about having a guide is that you can really get much more out of your holiday than when you go up into the mountains alone. A guide can tell you everything about the mountains, the flowers, the animals, and all kinds of other interesting things!

Raclette by moonlight

But the best thing was the night that Famke took us to a young farmer at the top of the mountain. He makes his own cheese and, every evening, he and his mother serve the most authentic raclette you can imagine! And what an adventure to walk back down the mountain at night under the starry skies. The kids loved it and so did we!
