AYAPANA - Guide on hiking, trail running or mountain biking

Your guide

Fond of Nature, outdoor sports and human relations, Alexis likes to share his passion for Reunion, his knowledge of the local flora and fauna, and anecdotes that punctuate the hikes he offers.
Aware that not all walkers have the same level, he offers outings adapted to each group, and remains attentive to each hiker. The multi-day excursions in the cirque of Mafate will be an opportunity to meet the inhabitants of the hamlets.

A state graduate in mountaineering level 1, a tropical and winter mid-mountain guide, Alexis is an experienced guide. Ditto for its 2 other activities: Mountain Biking Qualification Certificate (CQC) and an initiator diploma in mountain racing. Finally, and this will be of particular interest to athletes who are aiming for complete preparation, he is also a nutritional balance advisor.

In recent years, it has become a sport more and more appreciated by runners who like to run long distances in the middle of nature.
Trail running has naturally found a favorite terrain in the mountains of Reunion. As a Trail runner himself and a mountain sport professional, Alexis offers his advice (circuits, required level, equipment, preparation, balanced diet ...) to prepare you for the particular relief of Réunion’s mountains and avoid its pitfalls.
He can therefore offer you training courses over a weekend, half-day excursions (35 km) or a Trail / MTB combination for a day.


Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned mountain biker, Reunion offers multiple routes from the mountain to the coast; the volcano, Etang Salé, Entre Deux, Cilaos, the Maïdo (services delegated to our specialized partners), Salazie or even Mafate are all exhilarating playgrounds in a privileged natural environment.
However, the markup is almost non-existent and the presence of an experienced guide like Alexis is a major asset for an optimized outing.
Classic or electric mountain biking, enduro riding, cross-country excursion, sporting or family outing (children's trolley available), Alexis will be able to concoct a circuit adapted to your desires, your physical condition and your budget.


To combine an attraction for Nature and an attraction for music, go on a musical hike! Follow Alexis and a cellist in a grand location to listen to the Bach suites for half a day.
An unusual approach, an unforgettable experience ...
