Bios

All our guides are qualified to either BP Jeps or DE Jeps standard, and are enthusiasts on the river.  They're committed to making sure you have maximum fun, while at the same time feeling confident in your security.  If you're anxious, please speak to us before the trip so we can help you feel more at ease.

Natalie Elvy

Bossy boots

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 chalet host during a ski season.  Having learned no French at all, she stayed in France, and discovered there’s even more action in the Alps in summer months than the winter ones.  She should be able 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...  Still disappointed in her level of French, for the rest of the year she teaches English as a foreign language!

Jeremy HELVIC

Boss, White-Water Guide, Canyoning Guide, Climbing Guide

 

Jeremy is a river guide (Masters), canyoning guide (Masters) and climbing guide (Batchelors).  Originally from Normandy he has made the Alps his home - there are few places in the world with fabulous skiing in winter, kayaking in summer, and mushrooming in interseason. For the past 20 years he has guided on the rivers Giffre, Dranses, Isere and Dora Baltéa, and 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.

Adrien (AD)

White Water 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.
 

Nico

White Water Guide

Nico joins us for his summer holidays - for the rest of the year he is a professer of sport at the University of Lyon.  In summer he comes back to guide on the Dranse, and has years of experience on the river!

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!

Séb

White Water Guide

Seb, aka P'tit Seb, is another guide who's been around the Dranse for more years than he'd like to remember!!  A keen kayaker he spends his summer guiding and kayaking, and for the rest of the year he's a keen gardener...

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!

Karen

Secretary, information guide

Corentin

White Water Guide

The young 'un of the team, Corantin is learning from the best - he came to us on a uni placement and has spent the last couple of months improving his confidence on white-water by guiding rafts, hydrospeeders and airboats.  He's also a keen mountain biker, and in winter he teaches Nordic Skiing.  He's at the University of Mont Blanc, studying Sport.
