Hey, I’m Maaike, a swiss-dutch nature lover!
Born in the 80s in Switzerland & having grown up in the mountains of the French-speaking Swiss region, my parents made me share their passion for the summits!
I was just two months old when they took me on my first wild camping family adventure, at 2’000m of altitude, in a thunder & lightning storm… (and I was just happily sleeping, snuggled in my down sleepingbag, while the rest of my family was scared by the storm… haha)
The mountains are for me what oxygen is to the lungs. A special place where every step take meaning, every thought pushes you forward, a unique place where I feel in total harmony with the earth, my spirit and our Creator.
My passion for the outdoors was like a fire burning inside of me, but to rarely did I have the chance to fully enjoy it ! My corporate job was only allowing so much time off per year, so I decided to create an online business, to have the freedom to follow my dreams!
Now not only do I have the joy to share my passion for nature with others (including hiking routes review), but I also mentor people to live their own dreams fully, by creating their own online business! If you too are seeking more freedom in your life, check out “Ressources” in the menu bar.
