Aaron West - Tour Guide
Traveling is a pastime for some people, a break from regular life. For me, it is my regular life. As your tour guide, I’ll help you disconnect from your everyday world, so you can immerse yourself in nature and reconnect with yourself.

Hiker, Traveler, Outdoor Lover, Nature Appreciator
My name is Aaron West and I am a certified tour guide. I have loved travelling ever since I can remember, and have spent more of my life with a backpack on my back than I have sitting at a desk. I have been to every continent in the world and visited more than 50 countries, including Senegal, Indonesia, Qatar, Bahrain and Greenland.   

I am fluent in English, French and Italian and have very passable Spanish (if I do say so myself). I hold a BA in History from New York State University and spent 3 years living in Italy, where I wandered the countryside, working at odd jobs, and meeting wonderful people. I gained some excellent culinary skills during my travels, and am known for preparing some of the finest campfire meals in the region. I am a certified lifeguard and former competitive rower. 


Want a different sort of adventure with your friends or family. A guided trip into the wilderness is an excellent way to bond with friend or have a memorable time with your family. I’ll adapt the trip program to your group’s individual needs, ages, etc. 
All of my tours involve some degree of walking, but if you’d like a bit more activity, I’m happy to accommodate. In addition to full day or overnight canoe trips, you can also choose a full day off-road biking tour, mountain climbing, and rappelling. Let me know what interests you.  
Grab your camera or your sketchbook and charcoals, because there are so many highlights on one of these tours, you’ll want to capture them all. From deserted paper mills to highest local peaks, from ice carved caves to ancient trees, enjoy the very best sites in the region. 
If you have something in mind that isn’t described in these pages, just let me know, and I’ll do my best to accommodate. I can adjust for physical limitations or time restraints, or arrange for an extra canoe or two if you’re part of a larger group.
