TESTIMONIALS

"Olivier’s Trails is a truly unique travel experience. Olivier's passion for the outdoors and adventure is reflected in his thoughtfully crafted itineraries. From the local culinary experiences, thrill inducing activities, to details such as timing to catch the sunset at some of the most magnificent peaks in the world, Olivier’s attention to detail and overall preparation is reflected in the day to day of his trips... The 10 day European Alps ski trip Olivier crafted is one I’ll never forget. Highly recommend to those looking to experience the world through the lens of the outdoors."

"Upon my return, I was asked... How was your trip? and my response was... An adventure of a lifetime! Olivier is truly dedicated to what he does and his intense enthusiasm shines through. He had planned an adventure-packed, scenic trip that included everything from rock climbing to whitewater rafting and hot spring sunsets in the Pacific Northwest that I will always treasure. Everyday the group trekked through new trails, saw amazing views and caught incredibly picturesque sunrises/sunsets. Olivier is passionate about what he does and you cannot go wrong joining him on his trails!"

Dominika

"Olivier organizes thorough itineraries and takes the hassle of planning, logistics and research away so you just need to fly to your destination and enjoy your time. He'll take you off the beaten path and show you an active vacation in a way you most likely haven't experienced before, all while sharing a ton of knowledge with the group throughout the adventure. Each day is packed with adrenaline-filled activities and after your tour is over, you will surely be coming back for more. Highly recommended!"

"Olivier provided the most unique and adventurous way to enjoy the beauty Costa Rica has to offer. Rather than going on the typical tourist excursions, we were immersed into the local atmosphere in every way possible. From surfing, to rappelling waterfalls, each and everyday was its own extraordinary adventure.

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience. I truly felt I was living my best life in Costa Rica!

PURA VIDA"
