Carole Rasmussen

Traveling and outdoor activities have always been great passions for Carole Rasmussen. Her studies in tourism and later in teaching French and English have led to various guiding experiences throughout Canada and in Europe. She has been a high school teacher for many years and still takes advantage of her free time to discover and travel. She particularly enjoys trekking and has explored some of the most beautiful and challenging trails in New Zealand, Corsica, and Peru, to name a few. Always traveling extensively in her native Quebec, she enjoys its cultural diversity, its history, and its magnificent landscapes.


Simon Fortier

Simon Fortier is always in pursuit of the next adventure and his desire to discover Canada’s natural wonders has taken him all over the country. Particularly memorable are the times he’s guided wildlife observation and multi-sport expeditions across the Canadian arctic, where he has sometimes spent more than 30 consecutive days out on the land! He has trekked, skied, rafted, kayaked, and canoed through some of the most beautiful areas his native Canada has to offer. Simon is known for having kept his childish heart with his endless energy and curiosity and it’s his desire to live great experiences that makes every trip with Simon inspiring and so much fun.

In his free time, Chris enjoys a number of active sports, ranging from basketball to paragliding and including, of course, hockey! He has traveled extensively around the world, from the Arctic Circle to the Andes, and is a certified open-water diver as well.
