A PASSIONATE NETWORK DRIVEN BY NATURE
Women from the outdoors, Delphine has always been immersed in nature. She lived in many parts of France and the world (UK, Australia, Canada, New-Zealand), exploring some of the most incredible places while working as a tourism experience specialist.
For years, she organizes travel and outdoor trips for people.
From 2017, she practices overnight solo traveling and trekking while empowering new hikers. She studies alternative ways to bring nature and adventure into her daily life to avoid the post-travel blues and uses adventure as a pathway for transformation and well-being.
She invites people to follow her steps going out of their comfort zone. Both are pathways to learn, grow, challenging yourself. #bethechangeyouwishttoseeintheworld Project.
