Dave Norris

Expedition Leader



Dave is part of our epic Pyrenees guiding team, and is an experienced International Mountain Leader and outdoor educator. After completing 22 years in the British Army, mainly delivering adventure training, he worked as an outdoor trainer in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, France, Germany and the UAE, he also holds the highest UK mountaineering qualification of Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor.

Dave heads up many of our Aneto treks as well as trekking and cycling in the stunning French Pyrenees, where he lives with his wife Louise, son Jake and two dogs Mir and Storm.

When Dave is not guiding you in the mountains, you’ll find him cycling, paddling, skiing, climbing, snowshoeing and listening to music… loudly!

I think doing something different, taking you out of your comfort zone and normal home comforts and being challenged a bit is great.

It was thoughtful thinking of those who did the trip without all the comforts we had like waterproof trousers and food etc… escapism, time to think, time to get to know people, time to get to know yourself and how you adapt to situations. It was very varied, each day was different, it was great being outside in nature away from everything!
