- BIVY – what’s in my bagpack?
People often ask what’s in my backpack when I leave for a long bivy trip. Well I just came out of the mountains here in New Zealand and I have a bit of connection, therefore, I can now share my checklist with you. My bag was specially designed by Gradient for the Red Bull X-Alps. It’s a compromise between comfort and weight. It weights 750grams but it’s incredibly resistant and […]
- Solo Bivouac, NEW ZEALAND
Four years ago, Ferdinand Van Schelven and I crossed the south island of New Zealand from south to north. 30 days of bivouac on the most spectacular landscape. Tomorrow, I’ll be off to NZ for 4 weeks, on my own and in total autonomy. I’ll start at Queenstown and cover as much distance as possible, getting lost in the deep wilderness. After my climbing accident in Greece last October, I […]

- Follow the Snow
The best thing about staying in Europe during winter, are the countless activities you can do : ski touring, ice climbing, hiking, smooth take offs with your skis, but mostly, pay a visit to all of our friends living across the Alps. For the first time since years, I’ve decided to spend 40 days traveling through the Alps, following the snow. Along with Sofia, we took all of our mountain […]
2017, the year I’ve been waiting for. Thanks to you, to your support and encouragement from all theses years, I have the opportunity to evolve in my sport and give adventure a new twist. I couldn’t be happier to share all the upcoming excitements and wild projects we’re about to embark. You have become part of this adventure.
- Winter Session Coming Up!
If I remember correctly, it has been 4 years that I haven’t spent a proper winter season at home or in Europe. Usually, when the thermostat starts showing low temperature, I would hit the other side of the globe where the air is warm and thermals are up to its full potential. This year, I’m happy to make more room for my touring skis and enjoy the cold wind and […]
Today, I’m leaving for an expedition in Albania with Nicolas Favresse and Sean Villanueva. We’ll be off for a month, climbing the country’s big walls, flying above its mountains and kayaking down its wild river: Vjosa. The Vjosa is one of the least explored rivers in Europe. However, more than 400 new hydropower dams are to be built in all Albania (Vjosa included), which will have a drastic impact on […]

- Lotto Young Adventurers- Second Edition!
This year was the second edition of the Lotto Young Adventurers. Our 2016 four winners had a very ambitious project: cross the Pyrenees from Monte Perdido to Barcelona: hiking, cycling, kayaking… and paragliding. Having no experience in that department, their highlight was to learn how to fly. We started the expedition by climbing Monte Perdido, then cycling from Torla to Morillo de Tou. From there, they took their kayaks to […]
- Training Around Europe
During July and August, I travelled around Europe in search of good flights and train for the upcoming Red Bull X-Alps. I installed a tent on top of the Amarok and hit the long European roads. I started in the south of France then drove straight to Organyà (Spain) where I met the whole paragliding tribe. It’s crazy what ten days in that place can do to you. In Organyà, […]
