Jonny Kaye

From the peaks of the French Alps to Italy’s Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales in England, Jonny Kaye has traveled and traversed countless mountain ranges, guiding groups of intrepid hikers along the way. “I spend every minute of my spare time either climbing, skiing, or walking in the mountains,” he says. Originally from England, he makes his home in the Tarentaise Valley in France and holds a Remote Emergency Care First Aid certificate. When not leading trips, Jonny enjoys time with his family, cycling, and birding, and in winter, runs a ski chalet near his home.
