Stewart Wheelhouse, a Welshman by birth, has spent the past 23 years leading adventures and expeditions throughout the world. He has traveled the length of Africa, written guidebooks on cycling through Europe, and led expeditions in Asia and Australia. A wonderful storyteller and traveling companion, Stewart spends his free time between trips exploring the backcountry trails of France and the Alps, and sailing the Mediterranean. When the northern hemisphere gets too cold, he migrates to Tasmania to lead our tips there and spends time sailing and fishing with his mates in the D`Entrecasteaux Channel.
Excellent is not sufficient to rate Stewart; he was over the top in all respects. His knowledge of the areas we hiked was encyclopedic, his management of the logistics flawless, his enthusiasm for the trek infectious. His off-hike (dinner, recreation) companionship was always lively and his stories were priceless. Stewart is fantastic at what he does, makes all guests super comfortable with the hike, and the gave us the confidence that we could succeed.

Stewart is a true professional, judged our pace and abilities, coached, "set up" each day so we knew what to expect. He is a pleasant, worldly companion but first and foremost he is a skilled trip leader.
Stewart knows the Alps, the region, the customs. He always has a story and a smile. He kept everyone safe without being smothering.
