Hello, my name is Marina.
Thank you for your interest. I am a Swiss Hiking / Trekking and snowshoe guide with federal diploma and international approval (UIMLA, Union of International Mountain Leader Associations). I am also a certified outdoor and canoe guide and have a diploma in experiential education.
I live in the heart of Switzerland, in the beautiful canton of Nidwalden. I would love to show you the mountains and beauty of my country. From lake to summit. I will guide you to some spectacular places away from the crowds. Of course we can also visit some touristic hot spots together. But I’d rather show you my country the way it really is and give you insights from a Swiss perspective. How about having lunch in a typical alpine Restaurant (Alp hut) and maybe enjoying their self made cheese after a beautiful hike? You will even meet the cows where the milk comes from…
Some more background: Before I became an outdoor guide I worked over 20 years in banking, was a member of the board, and I have a lot of experience in leadership, project management, sales and customer services as well as in team and change management. I have a diploma of advanced studies in banking, a federal diploma in financial planning and several sales and leadership certificates.
I am fluent in English and I will be pleased to guide you outdoors. I offer group and individual outdoor adventures. Let’s customize your VIP tour – please contact me. If you subscribe for a group tour don’t worry – I will give you the necessary information and instructions in English. More about me
