Fabrice Arbonnier

Nature guide, astronomer, storyteller. Amongst all the passions I like to share, I have a deep interest for small creatures and their lives but also the sing of birds which allows us to recognize them … and what about the night sky and its stories and legends.
Let’s set off together to discover wildlife and continue to go for a storytelling walk under the stars - to prolong the wonders. Whether on foot, snowshoes or in a classroom (educational, practical workshop) or from a telescope to a binocular, I will be your mediator in this mountain environment so rich in emotions and sensations.
See you on the trails. English spoken.

I have been very passionate about mountains since I was little. It was in 2005 when I join the office of mountain leaders as a secretary and host.
I am behind the computer or on a phone, so it’s me who answers all your questions and prepare the quotes. I also welcome you at the – Maison de la Montagne- at Orcieres-Merlette 1850, summer and winter.


From a young age, I have been very interested in nature and all the creatures living in it.
My deep interest for natural and human environment guided me on a path to discover more and more about alpine fauna, flora and human life in the mountains.
It is my pleasure to take you on a discovery of Champsaur and Valgaudemar valleys. For all ages I would like to offer and share a wonderful journey and a nice time in nature.
I look forward to meet you. I speak english fluently.


Mountain leader and storyteller on the trails, I appreciate the little corners of nature as much as the great trips on peaks. I am also very passionate about the life of the mountain people.
I have experienced amazing human adventures leading people with disabilities : joelette (wheelchair in mountains) and I have a guiding qualification in handisport/disabled sport. Time to time I also do some hiking with donkeys.
I have fallen in love with Valgaudemar valley where my life led me to. I have also created multiday trips in many mountainous environment, close to my home : Ecrins, Briançonnais, Vercors, Chartreuse...and even further : Calanques
