Camping & Hiking Expert Fabio D.
  • Fabio D.

    My name is Fabio - I'm an outdoor enthusiast living in Alaska. I grew up in a mountain town in Switzerland. Hiking, climbing, snowboarding, trail-running and sleeping outside were huge parts of my upbringing.

    In 2012, I decided to quit my job, packed my backpack and travelled around the world for 4 years straight. I cooked meals over camp fires in Siberia, lived in yurts with nomadic eagle hunters in Mongolia, hiked into some remote parts of the Himalayas, hitchhiked and backpacked through New Zealand and Australia, climbed and camped in the beautiful Andes – overall I probably spent equally as many nights in tents and under night skies as I did in hostels.

    On this crazy journey, I fell in love with an island in Alaska and made the vast wilderness of this beautiful place my home base.

    My favorite thing in the world is combining my two biggest passions: Being in the outdoors and snowboarding. Nothing better than a multiday snowboard/winter camping expedition!

    Fabio knows his gear and has put it through its paces. He smoothly guided me and my fiancé through our gear-up for wet and wild spring hiking at altitude. He gave us multiple affordable, high-quality suggestions for each item we sought, so we could pick what most suited our needs. He’s professional and fun to communicate with. We highly recommend working with this expert.
