Please consult my website (snowshoeing section) to see the full programme of hikes.

Personalized and knowledgeable
Gareth tailored the day to accommodate both my location (outside his usual area) and the uncooperating weather (it hadn't snowed for weeks). He was energetic, knowledgeable and fun. We hiked a fairly long way to find snow at higher altitude but the pace was reasonable and the scenery interesting. Gareth made a real effort so that I could give snowshoweing a try. It was my first time and I was really happy to have hired a guide who would create such a positive experience. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Hiking in Gavernie
Our wonderful guide Gareth Evans took us on 2 fabulous hikes this week. The girst was on the famous Cirque du Gavernie and the second in the Hautacam. We are 2 couples in our 60s and he was very patient and geared it yo our ability. We recommend hom and would definitely use him if we return to these spectacular mountains.

Great Mountain Days
This was our first visit to Argeles-Gazost but Gareth certainly made it a trip to remember. He has a superb knowledge of the area and seemed to be able to pitch the difficulty of the walks perfectly for us, taking us to not only to the not to be missed tourist highlights such as Gavarnie but also to less well known spots that only a local guide would know. I would highly recommend this guide.

Fantastic cycle and trekking in Galicia
On a recent trip to explore Santiago de Compostela and the surrounding area I was lucky enough to meet Gareth. He was excellent in showing me the local area. I wanted to explore some of the local peaks, I wanted to hike and mountain bike and he was able to accomodate all my requests. I left feeling extrememly satisfied that I had made the most of my trip and would highly recommend Gareth for all guiding needs.
