Natalie Elvy

Founder

Nat, originally from Ayrshire, Scotland, was a TEFL teacher in various places around the world, and a social researcher in Edinburgh before taking time out to do a ski season. After this she discovered there’s just as much action in the Alps during the summer months as in winter time, and the landscape is breath-taking! Her role is to answer your questions and organise your booking, then ensure you get to where you take-off from, wearing the right gear, at the right time.

Jeremy HELVIC

Founder

 

Jeremy, a fully qualified river guide and canyoning guide, originally comes from Normandy and was seduced by the Alps while kayaking there in the late '90s. For the past 15 years he has guided on the rivers Giffre, Dranses, Isere and Dora Baltéa, and has decided to use his experience to establish FROGS. Fluent in English and French, he’ll get you surfing waves, abseiling canyons or climbing cliffs!  Durning winter he works in Avoriaz as a ski patrol.

Brendan

Guide

 

Originally from Brittany Brendan spends most of his time on the water. While he’s not taking people rafting, he’s kayaking in all weathers, on all rivers and at any time of year! He’s kayaked in New Zealand, Colombia and throughout Europe.  During winter he drives cement mixers around the crazy Haute Savoyard roads!

Adrien (AD)

Guide

The local-boy of the team, he's the only one of us to have been born in the area, not far from the Dranse!  

Having started kayaking and hydrsopeeding early, he's explored plenty of other rivers around France, spending a number of years guiding on the infamous Guil.  But lucky for us, he's come back to the Dranse.  He spends winter ski patrolling in Chatel.
 

Anna

Driver & Photographer

Fabulous Anna is a New Zealander who lives in Morzine year round.  Anna has worked as a canyoning and rafting guide in New Zealand and Switzerland so she's no stranger to outdoor activities: if you've any questions or anxieties, let her know so she can put you at ease!  She'll get you kitted out in neoprene and drive you up to the start of the trip, before following you down the river with her camera for some action shots of you on the water.  

She owns  45°North, a chalet company in central Morzine ideal for skiers in winter and bikers in summer!

Mihai

Driver & Photographer

The lovely Mihai is from Romania, and has lived in the area for the last couple of years since he swapped facilities and events management in London for an outdoor life in the Alps.   He'll get you togged up then drive you to the starting point and see you onto the river, before papping you on your way down!  Having ridden most of the roads in the area he'll happily give you advice on any road-biking excursions you might be considering!
