Mark Demmery

After 11 years serving with the Airborne forces reserve, Mark was on the hunt for another adventure and found himself increasingly exploring Scotland in the winter, progressing to the Alps, and then climbing in the valleys and mountaineering on the higher peaks. Eventually, this led on to international trekking and then in 2008, Mark made the jump to become a Mountain Leader and hasn’t looked back since.

Very much a morning person, Mark loves to be up before sunrise to sit quietly with a coffee and watch the sun rise over the mountains. On expedition, standing with the group as they enjoy the views for the first time has to be one of his favourite moments in any trip.

As a Mountain Leader, Rock Climbing Instructor and International Mountain Leader Aspirant, Mark has found the perfect vocation, leading trips to the Jungles of Cambodia and the mountains of Peru, Morocco and Nepal. He also works as an instructor teaching the next generation of Mountain Leaders. His last adventure was an attempt on Ama Dablam [6812m] and Mark is planning to return in 2025 and make Ama Dablam part of a much bigger expedition… watch this space!!

When not working on the hill or away with an expedition, Mark can be found climbing on the limestone cliffs of the Wye Valley, running in the Cotswold hills, or spending time supporting his wife and twin sons in their many wild and wonderful sporting endeavours.



We all had our ups and downs but Marco at his young age showed amazing leadership, maturity and plain brilliance. He was without a doubt the best guide I have ever had, and his continuous enthusiasm and motivation is just second to none.
